Many of us collect, or have collected, model aircraft. Lots of people display them on model airports. You can buy fully equipped model airports from brands like Herpa, or Geminijets, but maybe you don’t have the money or space for them. What do you do? Build your own! I’ve seen many people on this community that have created awsome, “Do it yourself” airports for their models. Post yours below and show us the details you put on it, what materials you used, and the general layout. Give new collecters inspiration for their own airport.
Notice: This topic is only for custom made model airports and model airport additions. Please post factory made models here.

This is the model that I’ve been working on for the last few days:
It could be used for Gemini jets, but I’m using Daron and Matchbox because my Gemini jets are too big of a scale.
The airport consists of 1 runway, a small air force base, a terminal with 6 air bridges and 2 gates, and a small parking lot. I built it on a large table in my room using paper (for the tarmac, fences, and building walls), and Lincon logs (for buildings). It also has tons of accurate taxiway and runway markings.
Here are some more pictures:

And finally, a small military air base:
