I (Dan) finished Jude's Christmas gift, an airport, this evening. And not a minute too soon, as we leave tomorrow for WI! Here is the finished project. Wow, looks pretty simplistic in a picture... the darn thing took hours of sanding, painting and tinkering. On the back of the control tower there is a little hand painted door, because Jude will eventually ask, "Hey Dad, how does the air traffic controller get into the tower?"
The other thing he'll ask about is where they fill up with fuel, so I had to add a little gas station pump. The hose is the end of a black shoe lace. When he's old he can tell his kids that Grandpa made this during the Great Depression II.
