Hi to all.
Orlando International Airport has always been a myth for me because, in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful and elegant airports of the world.
If you look it at google Maps it seems a flower with four petals: Concourse 2 (gates 100 to 129) is the one with the garden, palm trees and small lakes on the middle of the apron, with airplanes parking directly in front of them.
Absolutely amazing, unique in the world!
[7302264]


But i am living in Europe, Italy (Rome), so when i reproduce these mega-hubs i tend to realize the terminal buildings or airport sections that handle international/intercontinental traffic.
Unfortunately, at MCO, Concourse 2 is part of Main Terminal - A-Side (along with Concourse 1) while the majority of intercontinental-European airlines have parking stands at Concourse 4, part of Main Terminal - B-Side (along with Concourse 3).
[000885]


These the airlines serving MCO:


Aer Lingus (suspended)
Aerolineas Argentinas
Aeromexico
Aeromexico Connect
Air Canada Rouge
Air Transat
Alaska Airlines
American Airlines
Avianca
Azul
Bahamasair
British Airways
Caribbean Airlines
Copa Airlines
Delta Air Lines
Delta Connection
Edelweiss
Emirates
Eurowings
Frontier
GOL
Icelandair
Interjet
Jetblue
LATAM Brasil
LATAM Peru
Lufthansa
Norwegian Air Shuttle
Silver Airways
Southwest Airlines
Spirit Airlines
Sun Country
Sunwing
Swoop
United Airlines
United Express
Virgin Atlantic
VivaAerobus
Volaris
Westjet



The second fact is that many central-south America and north-America airlines are not present in 1:500 scale, while for other we have only widebodies and we need narrowbodies!

These the missing airlines and models for a complete MCO airport:


Aeromexico B737-800 and B737-700
Aerolineas Argentinas B737-800 and B737-700
Air Canada Rouge A319
Air Transat A321 and B737-800
Avianca A319, A320, A321
Bahamasair B737-500 and B737-700
Copa Airlines B737-800, B737-700, E190
Frontier A320
Interjet A320, A321, SSJ-100
LATAM A319, A320, A321
Southwest B737-700 and B737-800 new livery (but i have many B737-700 in old livery)
Spirit Airlines A319, A320, A321
Sun Country B737-800
Sunwing B737-800
Swoop B737-800
VivaAerobus A320
Volaris A319, A320, A321


Too many missing airlines and airplanes in 1:500 scale.
There is a third fact, the terminal building. Very difficult to realize, a particular shape and i have to understand how to realize it.



So, what to do? Make Concourse/Airside 2 with international/intercontinental traffic or give up the beautiful garden + palm trees + lakes and realize Concourse/Airside 4?
Thanks for the help fellow collectors and friends.[wink]

You've got to go with the garden. As you say, it is quite unique. You could always do a hybrid of sorts, combining the best of both concourses.

Well done, sir. So very well done. I really like what you've done here.

Now, add in about four to five Virgin Atlantic 747-400s, and you've got it spot on. [biggrin]

I think this is my new favorite. Molto Benne!

Excellent work, but where do find the room to display all your airport layouts.

I have a kind of niche where to store the layouts, but now space is missing...
