Default Model Airport - Skechup Phase

[AN UPDATED POST FROM MY ORIGINAL ON WINGS900]

Hey Guys, So Ive went back to the Drawing board , Looked at the Scale Charts and Worked it all Out. Its now Got a Total of 14 Gates, 2 of which are Rural.

So whats New?
Well first of all There are 3 "Large" Aircraft Gates 2 can hold a A380, 747 And 777. 1 Can hold a 747 and 777.
The Regional Terminal is at the Left instead of right.
The Cargo Warehouse has gone, Bit if I extend it, it will return.
The roof of the Main Building has changed, And Im am Very Happy with that.
The Building is Taller, And there is 2 levels at the front for cars, The Muilt story car Park has moved the the right a Little, And there is a Hotel.

So again, I'm open to Suggestion, Criticism. Also Its 1/400 the and its 148cm x 98cm its a Tight space so Ive done as much as I can.

Yeah paper would be good, Maybe harden it like paper mache.

Small Problem though

In this picture you see 2 Rural Gates? Well I was wondering should I remove them and Put a Hanger, Fire Station & GSE Shed in it?

I think Ill keep it, If I expand, Ill put them In.

Designing the Interior, I think it would be good like LHR T5 where you can see right inside because its make of glass. I think it will be a challenge though. Tiny Boarding Desks and seats with Tiny People
