Airport Terminal Transit Track

A very common landmark at many large airports around the world is the terminal transit, the Gatport Airwick diorama wouldn’t look right without one. In fact, the real terminal transit at the well known West Sussex airport commonly gets mistaken for being a monorail, it is definitely not a monorail because it featured two tracks.

Starting with a styrene sheet base, I built up the track and infrastructure components for the terminal transit using plastic card of various shapes.

After the components had been glued in place, the whole track system was given a coat of grey primer and left to dry for a day.

Once the grey primer had dried, I added colour using various shades of grey and brown to represent the different concrete structures on the infrastructure and to give the best ‘rapid terminal transit’ appearance I could.
