    Worlds Largest Model Airport - Cost 3m to build!

    The world's biggest model airport has gone on display after six years of development and construction at a staggering cost of just over 3m.

    Called Knuffingen Airport, the pricey model is based on Hamburg's international airport and is about 40 times smaller than the original.

    The incredibly detailed model can be seen in Germany's Miniatur Wunderland, a place which is also home to the world's largest miniature railroad landscape.

    Objects featured in the model include 40 aircraft that can take off and land, 90 vehicles on the runway, 40,000 lights and 15,000 figurines. The vehicles and figurines can move thanks to an innovative computer system, and the planes can 'fly' thanks to wire connections.

    Take a look at pictures of the world's largest miniature airport below.

    You can activate subtitles by clicking on CC in the lower right corner (on youtube only, not in the embedded video).

    I really can recommend visiting the Miniaturwunderland, not only because of the airport, it is a really nice modell train at all!
