World's largest model airport

(I'm sure there's a diecast Mini Cooper in there somewhere!)

The world’s largest model airport/railway, the Knuffingen Airport, has gone on display in Germany.

The incredible model is based on Hamburg Airport and features 40 planes and 90 vehicles that autonomously move around the airport.

It took seven years to build and cost a staggering $4.8 million.

...

There are approximately 40,000 lights, 15,000 figurines, 500 cars, 10,000 trees, 50 trains, 1000 wagons, 100 signals, 200 switches and 300 buildings.
