Default Imogenia International Airport

Hi all. I have posted about this on wings900 before but since then there have been major changes (including the addition of a cargo terminal) so I thought I'd repost here on dac too.

I am a major collector of 1:600 scale schabak model aircraft (I have 1700+ as well as over 200 1:400s) and I would like to invite people to visit my large 1:600 scale model airport at:

Imogenia International 1:600 Scale Model Airport

The airport has taken me several years to get near completion and to get a website up and running for it. It is not just a model however but a thought out real airport set in the year 1997 on the fictional island of Imogenia in the South China Sea. I have worked out all the airlines and aircraft that could have viisted such an airport using SIN and HKIA as a model and created timetables and such. I have even made my own custom models for airlines Schabak never made.

The model is completely self-made and uses no kits of any kinds, as there are none for a 1:600 scale. Though larger scale models are better it is very hard to create a model for them that is suitably large and realistic. My airport fits to proper construction methods and is of my own design as real airports waste a lot of space and can't be fitted to a decent sized area.

On the website there are hundreds of phots so please take a look and I hope you enjoy your visit to Imogenia - the gateway to the pacific!

I love it! I've got a pretty large collection of 1:600 myself and I'm always excited to see people build airports in that scale. Usually these airports lack detail, but yours is grand. Well done!

Gosh, this is awesome! I really like your airport. It has a great layout and a big amount of details, which is not that easy in 1:600, Keep building... Maybe a Terminal 3 (?) and a connection to Berlin-Tegel (TXL), please

Looking very nice! I dismantled my airport due to warping problems with the paper, but am probably going to try again, but not using paper as a base. What do you use paint, paper, or something else?

BTW, this is airport1-600 from back at S600

Thanks everyone glad you enjoyed visiting the site.

I paint directly onto the mdf using the little humbrol model paints and don't use paper except for the terminal windows.
