Airport Terminal Transit Vehicle

Many multi terminal airports across the world, feature some form of internal transit system for passengers with heavy luggage, to swiftly move from one terminal building to the next. The real location in West Sussex features a rapid transit system (not a monorail!) between the North and South terminals.

I started by cutting out pieces of styrene sheet to form a basic transit vehicle shape.

I then added door detail and internal seat detail onto the main structure of the carriage, leaving the roof unfixed to allow glazing to be added later. The whole vehicle was then given a coating of grey primer.

Next I started to scratch build the chassis by beginning with a basic rectangle shape. Then wheels were added and glued into place on the chassis. The styrene sheet was then given a coat of grey primer. After the primer had dried sufficiently, the chassis was then given a coat of blue paint similar to a very British Airline.

After the coat of grey primer had dried on the main vehicle body, the carriage body was then also given a coat of blue paint similar to a very British Airline. After the paint had dried, glazing was added using transparent styrene sheet and fixed into place inside the carriage body.

The roof has been left ‘open’ to allow 00 gauge passengers with luggage to be installed into the carriage.
