World’s Largest Model Airport

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

It took $4.8 million and over 7 years to build the spectacular model airport of Hamburg’s Knuffingen Airport that is now on display at Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg, Germany.  The entire model takes up 150 square meters (roughly 1614.5 square feet) which makes it the worlds largest model airport ever made.  What is amazing is the attention to detail that the designers had in making the display.  The planes move on the ground and fly in the air while the mini passengers appear to walk around the terminals of the airport.

I posted a video of the display below so that you can see just how detailed it is as well as a short video that shows the construction.
