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.

Thanks!! Yes it would be cool, but I'm only 16 and It's just a simple diorama... I don't wanna go to further on it... nothing complex.. hehe

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

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
