    1/400 Spanish Mediterranean Airport

    My latest project is heavily inspired by Palma de Mallorca. The general concept is based on that of Module A. It is not a full representation as I wanted to feature aspects within the space I have available.

    All the stands are as accurately presented as possible based on true dimensions and angles using Google Earth. The middle remote stands have been cut down from 6 to 4 to allow both taxiways either side, as well as to feature the widebody stand on the right. The stand to the left of the left taxiway was really not in the thought process but was able to be featured with the remaining space as I worked from right to left for the majority of the planning process.

    The idea is to begin from the 1990's. It really should of began in 1995 - the year I was born. However we start in 1994 for the sole purpose of featuring the Caledonian 757-200. Depending on what models I acquire, I may consider earlier times than that of the 90's but for now we will progress from the mid 90's.

    We move into 1997 with this update. I was hopeful MD-80s would fit into the middle remote stand positions but they don't seem to be able to, certainly not with the guidance of the stop lines andk keeping the T tails in the stand boundaries.
