The World’s Smallest Airport – Knuffingen


Check out this video. Physical model building is a dying art form due to the rise of computer models capable of photorealistic 3D imagery. I’m not sure why, or who, decided it would be good to spend the equivalent of $4.7 million and 6 years to build a working scale model based on Hamburg’s airport in Germany (the model airport is called the Knuffingen Airport) but the result is truly amazing. The planes and vehicles all move, it lights up at night, and the attention to every detail inside and out is incredible. What do you think?
