Airport
I created this airport when I was 3 years old and renovated it over the course of 14 years to look like what it does today!
About this creation
My passion for both Lego and aviation has dated back to the age of 3, and at the time, I thought why not combine both! While I've built literally hundreds of Lego structures throughout my childhood (I really need to take photos of them!), none is more dear to me than my airport. I think that's because no structure has stayed with me longer than it! The original version I built when I was three, which naturally looks nothing like this version, was a simplistic airport with one plane model. Today, my plane collection spans over 100 models of all airliners from all continents. For that reason, the airport, which was updated last in 2004 (with other major updates occurring in 1997, 2000, and 2002) is over-crowded. I can only fit about 40 models in it, and the airport was never designed to handle such capacity. The airport consists of a main terminal with both arrivals and departures levels, two small concourses on either side of the main terminal (with a plane-spotting tower on one of them!), a connecting bridge to the two main concourses, the two primary concourses, and both my old and new control towers. I have 100s of pics of the latest version, so email me if you would like to see more. Unfortunately, I never planned on sharing these pics, so they are not of the best quality, and I apologize in advance. Enjoy!

And for the record, if anyone is wondering why I've left the airport so congested and never made an effort to expand to accommodate all my planes, please know that the white boards shown in the photo were what my parents restricted me to in terms of space for all of that time. At age 3 it seemed like eternal space and that I would never run out. But naturally my collection grew, and I'm left with no room for expansion!

Quoting cornell twilley cool were did u get the planes from?????
I got the planes over many years from various retailers. Collecting 1:200 scale models is another hobby of mine (maybe more so than Lego) so I have over 100 of those models combined with 300+ that my Dad has in 1:400 scale.
