Westjet 737 Aircraft Hangar and Control Tower Diorama
Westjet Hangar Diorama with several 737 Westjet aircraft and a Control Tower.
About this creation


These photos show a couple views inside and towards the hangar. The lighting had sort of a nice effect on the Hangar floor and Airplane. I also compared the hangar doors to the Real life hangar in Calgary.










These are my favorite photos.










Just showing some of the details inside the hangar. I know its sort of hard to see them when the roof is on.










Just some shots of the aircraft and inside the hangar.










A couple shots of the tarmac and the aircraft.










Music is a good thing to have while working on airplanes! And who could ever forget coffee break?










A couple shots of traffic behind the Hangar. The red and white service building is mainly used for communications at the Airport.











These are photos of the air traffic control tower. The radar antenna rotates on top and the building has audio of ATC conversations.




The whole diorama was inspired by the Westjet Hangar in Calgary Alberta. This Diorama has taken a little over 2 months of on and off building. The Decals took almost as long as designing and building the airplanes.

I have not figured out how add LED Lights to my display but it is something that I would like to do in my future models. I hope to replicate many of the buildings at the Calgary International Airport. I hope to eventually work for Westjet in their maintenance department. Questions or Comments would be greatly appreciated.

Quoting David Brown I love this project, Im working on something myself and was wondering how you managed the hanger doors? I want to make some like that but I cant seem to figure it out. do you have any tips for me?
The hangar doors are not moveable. They are just a permanent wall from the base plate up with regular white bricks. I was originally thinking about having moving doors back and forth but I figured it was too much work. It is an idea that I hope to put in one of my future hangars. If you dont have enough bricks then I suggest making doors (or entire building) with just using plates sideways. It seems to be a less costly way (in bricks) of building a hangar.

I love the detail like the windsock, lights on top of the building and direction markers on the concrete.

Quoting Maxim Schupack One question BTW: did you paint your planes white, or did you have all the parts white from the start?
I had all the original parts. I also bought some from SALUG members. Ive got a total of 5 Westjet 737s and extra decals to make 2 more. I am in the process of building some Air Canada Tango airplanes and an Air Canada hangar!

A very nice facility, John! I agree with all the others: you have done a great job here. Love the glass-covored roof, the control tower and the huge gates/doors giving way into the working halls of the hangar. Inspite of the old-school small scale of your aircraft, the building looks huge and captures the true size of real hangars somehow. Congrats as well on those awesome decals for WestJets - wish I knew how to make decals... Nice! Best regards, Steffen

This is about three shades of cool! It's both realistic in it's details and whimsical in it's LEGOiness. If any of that makes sense.~H

excellent work! i agree,that 3 planes,make it look active,and realistic, the tower,parking with acces,figs uniforms, and,wow,the props!are all exeptional!bravo! if it was mine,i d buy the limo taxi helicopter 3x,put your decals on the helicopters,and customized limos,change a few doors on the buildings,[some are too small for my taste]and i would add an emergency vehicle garage[fire]with equipment. i like your planes,they re well done,it s just that the new round shaped parts look so much better,i tried my best for my helicopters,and when you put the 2 techniques,side by side,it s just obvious!it just looks right! because i come back from a dark age,i m not as attached to the old parts and technique,i just go for what looks more realistic!i hope you comment on my creations,and help me take it to the next level,as your opinion is highly respected.

My goodness gracious, now THIS is impressive. I love the color schemes, decals, details, lighting, photography, planes . . . everything! What excellent and creative detail you put into this. What I love most is the fact that you use tiny simple airplanes but make them look great by putting them in such detailed and beautiful surroundings. The buildings are superb and I love all the little things you added: the observation deck, the control tower, everything! It's not overdone but it's not too plain either. This is by far your best creation to me. Congrats! I can't wait to see what you do next! I love it!
