Before you get started, here is a list of what you’ll need: • Paper.

Runway Left The Left side of the runway consist of an end piece (7 versions available with different numbers), and 8 tiles that comprise the landing left side. There are also two types of taxiway entries to the runway, left side. Runway Center The Center runway tile can be printed as needed to achieve the desired runway length. These tiles will be located between the Left and Right side of the runway. There are also three types of taxiway entries to the runway, center.

Services These are the pieces for all types of airport services, such as: Cargo Complex, Fuel Depot, Commuter Terminal, Main Parking, Parking for Cars, Parking for cars & Trucks. www.airport-diorama-designs.com 2 1:400 Scale Custom Airport (AD-Custom-400) Tarmac These are several tiles for creating the general Airport Tarmac. There are several tiles with road markings in different configurations, and center grassy islands. Taxiway These are a couple of optional taxiway hold markings, and a set of runway entrance markings to be cut and applied to the runway entries.

There are enough runway tiles for the following runway configurations: 34-16, 34R-16L, 34L-16R, 16R-34L, 16L-34R 39-21, 39R-21L, 39L-21R, 21R-39L, 21L-39R 48-30, 48R-30L, 48L-30R, 30R-48L, 30L-48R The completed diorama can be mounted on a standard sheet of plywood, or Styrofoam. The Styrofoam is sturdy enough, and a lot lighter. You can find Styrofoam sheets at your local home center store, in the insulation isle. www.airport-diorama-designs.com 3 1:400 Scale Custom Airport (AD-Custom-400) To print the tiles, use the following settings: 1.
