I saw a report about this on TV a while back, and I even added a bookmark for the Amusing Planet post on it to the huge pile of bookmarks for things I might want to post about, but it was the IATA: KDEN post over at Luddy’s Lens that actually provided the inspiration for me to dig it up for a post on it today.
The world’s largest model airport has opened at Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg, Germany, which is also home to the world’s largest model railway landscape.
The model airport is based off of Hamburg’s Fuhlsbüttel International airport. It includes a whopping list of accessories, including 40 planes, 40,000 lights, 15,000 figurines, 500 cars, 10,000 trees, 50 trains, 1000 wagons, 100 signals, 200 switches and 300 buildings. The display took 7 years and roughly $4.8 million to build.
