Looks amazing, Carlos! I love the Terminal building and the scenery. Good job on the jetways! How did you do the windows and the siding on the Terminal? And also, what kind of foam are you using? It looks a lot like corkboard.

Looks great, though you might want to add some LED lighting in the diorama.

It is getting better and better.. Very nice with the windows and jetways..

You should never let your age hold yourself back. If you think it'll look good in the diorama then go for it. :cool:

Thanks for your words, B-HKD! :):) I know it would look cool! but even If i wanted to I would have to re-do the terminal since I didn't design it for that purpose :p

I saw on scalemodelstore.com there are foils aimed to this therefore I think I might use them.

Never say that again - this was a very pleasing and successful project. Your relative youth did not hold you back. Many people of any age would be happy to be able to build such a model.
