    That is really impressive I am very jealous of your friend.

    I looks like you are going to put lighting, is that correct?

    Yes, when shipped my friend from London will add lights. I will make the small holes for the lights.
    This airport will be made by 14 wood panels + terminal buildings, so it will shipped by DHL in several times. When complete it must be recreated as a puzzle: each wood panel linked to the other by superglue or small nails with hinges, even if in my opinion the best solution is to stick all the wood panels in a giant multilayer wood section.
