1:500 Model Airport Tropical Single Runway

Product Description

The Tropical Single Runway model airport consists of a PDF file with 70 ground foils to be printed, cut and assembled by the user. None of the airplanes or accessories are included. The layout for the model airport is as follows:


The complete model airport covers an area of 4 ft by 8 ft (1.22 m by 2.44 m), and it contains a single runway, a terminal area, a cargo area, and an open/hangar area.

For best results we recommend printing the foils on a high quality matte photo paper, the thicker the paper, the better. Click on the link Model Airport Instructions to download a copy of the assembly instructions.
