MiWuLa News TV: August-September-Ausgabe

Uploaded by MiWuLaTV on 30.09.2010

Welcome to a new edition of the MiWuLa-News.
There are several new buildings for the airport section.
Stefan and Tina spent the last months
designing the Lufthansa Technik hangar.
A complex building, highly accurate to the Hamburg building.
Hundreds of parts come together to form a realistic roof structure.
The mechanized gates use an automated drive to open and close
and will allow various types of planes to enter and exit.
Several custom-made items, like the waving flags,
fire escape stairways
or the distinctive arch, add to this piece of art.
After the paintwork and other tasks are done,
the hangar will become a permanent part of the layout.
The electricians are still busy wiring up some buildings
and supplying them with LEDs.
The airport hotel near the terminal is a mammoth task:
Every single room lighting is selectable.
It's easy to lose track with all these cables.
It's not an easy task for Sven and Matthias.
Below the Allgäu, things are also progressing.
The hardware store is now set up, complete with more details.
Besides the parking lot configuration, there are many humorous details.
In the commercial area next to the airport, there is a new supermarket,
a new car dealer,
and a small never-ending construction site.
Lastly, the large swimming and wellness center has been set up.
Detail work, such as the planting of trees, is almost complete.
Judith and Gaston have implemented the last houses in the Allgäu.
Gaston removed several pounds of plaster
while working on the rivers and rocks.
Typical for Gaston, he also makes use of the leftovers.
This is rubble, from the mountain.
I keep a bucket full of it,
but you can't use it as it is now.
So at first, I'll sieve it with this.
Then I'll have the really fine sand at first.
I'll use this fine sand for the river,
for decorating, for the paths,
or as debris, coming down from the mountain.
We've drilled some holes here, then we scoop some of it on here.
Then sieve it.
Then I have the second-largest granulation.
And look - that's the second granulation.
It's the right granulation for the river bed.
I'll select some of the larger stones,
because I've got this waterfall,
and I want to create a path through the river.
And because they are in the foreground, I'll scrub these
and make them look old, with a bit of moss and stuff like that.
Except for the Neuschwanstein Castle, most details are complete.
The essentials are done.
Many buildings are set up, and most of the airport's surface is done.
Modelmakers and electricians are working on details and scenes.
Flower boxes and baskets are being made
to decorate houses or offices,
and light masts are being built to form another highlight of the apron.
They are equipped with lights to supply lighting for the planes.
Figurines, such as the fire brigade, airport and flight personnel,
are hand-prepared for their moment to shine.
The small hill over the shadow airport also received more details.
Equipped with tents and ladders, the plane spotters
try to complete their collection of photos of airplanes.
Another decorating detail are these coloured tow bars.
In reality, they are used for the towing of planes on the airport grounds.
But that isn't possible on our scale.
The passenger boarding bridges are now on their final positions.
They will be fully automated to fit the different airplane types.
Also, many more pushback vehicles are now in operation.
The floor, with all its marked routes, has been lavishly painted
and furnished with the basic structure.
The application of different colour hues,
the drawing of flaws and fissures,
and the addition of true-to-original markings,
create a realistic aging process for the apron.
Meanwhile, the fleet of Airport Knuffingen is expanding.
Numerous new machines, such as this Boeing 777 of the Air France and KLM fleet,
and the Airbus A330, A320
and Air Berlin's Boeing 737, are now part of the permanent operation.
People are also hard at work constructing more airplanes
for Condor, Turkish Airlines, Red Bull or TUIfly.
An Asian Airline will also approach the Wunderland:
Bangkok-Knuffingen with the A380 of Thai Airways.
The Hamburg soccer Arena shines in new splendour:
Imtech, Germany's leading plant construction firm for
building services, is the new namesake for the stadium
that's constantly sold out with 12.500 visitors.
Besides Klaus Betz, Chairman of the Board for Imtech,
the two HSV stars Joris Mathijsen and Eljero Elia were present
to inaugarate the redesigned building.
The conversion took 25 days of work, especially the roof letters
and advertising on walls and stairs were converted for Imtech.
Small but spectacular fireworks revealed the new logo.
And that's it for this summer.
Thank you for watching, see you next time.
