Taking LEGO airports to new heights with a full-scale hangar

Fans of LEGO City will always feel something is amiss with the small airports LEGO releases as sets, thanks to the absence of full-sized hangars. That seems to have inspired James Zhan to take his LEGO City airport to new heights by constructing a minifig-scaled, full jet plane-sized hangar. Despite the sheer size, what’s truly impressive are the mundane yet often overlooked details in the construction of the folding doors that are tucked in when wide open with a simple yet almost grand motif at the top.

The icing on the cake and my favourite aspect of the build is the curved skylight structure that holds up well against a full windowed, panelled wall at the back of the hangar.

Now if we only we could get both Chi Hsinwei’s airport gates and James’s hangar together, we’d be a lot closer to an amazing, large-scaled, operational, full-service Airport! Anyone up for a runway?
