A miniature of the world’s largest model airport, the Knuffingen Airport went on show on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 at Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg, Germany, several news sites reported.

The model airport was said to be completed after six years of construction time. It costs around US$5 million (£3.5 million) which features 40 aircraft that take off and land and 90 vehicles that automatically move around the airport.

According to reports, the miniature model includes a “carsystem” that manipulates the vehicles to move by the use of computer.

The miniature model is so realistic that planes appear to take off, land and park themselves. People appear to walk around the terminals, runways have lights indicator and vehicles automatically move around.

Reports said that the model airport which was based on Hamburg‘s Fuhlsbüttel International Airport, features around 40 planes, 15,000 figurines, 40,000 lights, 10,000 trees, 500 cars, 50 trains, 200 switches, 100 signals and 300 buildings.

The miniature airport was said to be modeled in a 494-square-foot display.
