Most of you already know that Chris Helton has created some very nice terminal buildings for London Airport (renamed Heathrow in 1966). Bill Douglas and I have taken Chris' buildings and added a lot more, to create what I think is a very nice airport. It should be ready within a couple of weeks, we hope.
The Queens Building (right) and the Europa Terminal (left) at London Central, with the tower building behind. The Europa Terminal was for European and domestic flights, while the Queens building had a theatre, restaurants, shops, and a rooftop garden.
The recently opened Oceanic terminal, for international flights.
And finally the maintenance area, with BOAC hangars in the foreground and BEA hangars behind. The old RAF style hangars above the BOAC hangars were part of the original airport, and were used by BOAC, Cunard Eagle, and independent airlines.
There's a lot more to see, but we'll keep some things for you to find.

And I should add that Ken Lawson (the fourth author) has added so much to the airport, since he has supplied buildings like the North Terminal, the original BEA Hangar #1, and numerous sheds and hangars from his wonderful 1953 scenery. Here is his North Terminal in 1962, used for VIP parking as well as a cargo area:
Incredible detail. Am glad it has the North Terminal which I like to use for myself. Prior to this I've always used the North Terminal in Ken's 1953 Heathrow so depending which aircraft I am flying will switch between the two.
