Default Glasgow Airport Runway 05 (The Model =P) 1:200

I have been working on this for a few weeks, final got it looking the way i want. The image i have used was from google earth, photo shopped and some MS paint as well. I have order 1mm fiber optic cable, and some lights and going to 'attempt' to add the runway lights. Should be easy enough. Sorry pics not great, will get some more tomorrow with natural light.

Its is 19" by 26", just a wooden base with the runway printed out on standard paper. The grass is Hornby track grass, good realistic scale
Anyway, enjoy.

It is harder than I thought to add lights, but look good so far!

What are you using for the grass? Which scale did you choose for it?

Thanks for the photos. Very nice work. It re-inspires me to get going on a stalled project for a terminal at KROC circa 1998-2000. I've got the tarmac printed, but need to build the terminals and add the details...

The grass i picked up from my local model shop. Its O gauge grass, well thats what the bag said, its a very nice scale for 1:200. Even thought O gauge isnt 1:200. The owner said he has never seen z gauge grass, which is 1:220

O gauge grass ? That means scale is 1:43,5 to be exact ( sometimes 1:45 is used).
