Winter Village: Village Airport

Recommended Posts

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! While other airports may be hectic and troublesome this time of year, there are never long lines at Village Air. Travelers come from far and wide to take a short ride with pilot Charles Brickbergh, the legendary aviator who completed the first trans-Atlantic flight. Since retirement, he has made a humble home in Winter Village, and built a small prop plane that the locals affectionately refer to as "Rudolph." As our eager travelers (a small family of four) anxiously await the return of the pilot, they enjoy the hospitality and fine food of the Airport Café; and Charles' trusty mechanic Biff works on the plane. 23423228654_4f113729ab_c.jpg23755761870_3f0b1528fb_c.jpg24051429205_422627b752_c.jpg23683555609_c5c03d5821_c.jpg23424630643_cd59594a87_c.jpg ~ I noticed, as I was going through the last five years of Winter Village contest entries, that while there have been lots of cottages, and train stations, and shops, no one had ever built a Village Airport. This seemed like the perfect opportunity. While my entry stretches to 48-studs wide it is mostly open space due to the plane hangar (and the piece count comes in around 1500) so I think it is still in the approximate size of previous Winter Village sets. There are a few more pictures on my flickr account (unfortunately, I was taking pictures as we were heading out of town for the long Holiday so I didn't get time to set them up the way I wanted) - https://www.flickr.c...th/23424630643/. Any constructive criticism would be more than welcome - first time I've built anything like this. Thanks!

Wow, looks like the WV afol section are really trying to let TLG know there are lots of themes not yet explored.

I love this idea!

Wonderful roof, cute christmassy aircraft, and great interior.

Colours look cool, too.

And hey, where there's greasy engines, there has to be a "Biff". It's a given.

Good luck in the contest, and keep clicking those bricks together.

Thanks for the kind words and compliments. Would've liked more time but vacation plans got in the way. There's been some impressive entries this year.
