    --I heard about the giant scale-model airport during the last stages of planning CNET Road Trip 2011, and because I was already passing through Hamburg, I decided to stop in at the Miniatur Wunderland, where it is located, to check it out. And why not? It sounded cool, and besides, it accompanies the world's-largest model train collection.
    Still, before I arrived, I didn't know what to expect and whether or not I'd be disappointed. If you were thinking of going to Hamburg and checking this out, but had doubts of your own, let me dispel them: this is one of the coolest things ever.
    The airport is huge, a 1:87 full representation of the city's airport. And while that airport might not be world famous, when it's depicted in models, it should be. The airport is just like the real one looks, with a large tarmac, plenty of airplanes, a full runway, and--believe it or not--airplanes that take off and land.
