==MISSING PARTS==

The build is almost complete, 97% accurate. The color of baseplates is also a bit off, but those are all the correct parts.

This set no. 6392 'Airport' came out in April 1985, back in Legoland days, and it was the first proper airport model by Lego. I think it aged exceptionally well and building it today didn't felt like a particularly weird exercise. Frankly, some of today's best City sets could use some features of this model (like eight minifigures, for instance).

Even though the Terminal building is relatively small, the overall structure is enormous, since Lego included four baseplates to create a proper runway. It's worth noting that the instruction booklet didn't include specific instructions on how to connect the baseplates, set all the navigation lights on the ground, etc. Just the building and all vehicles. I wonder if it was a norm for Legoland, and kids were supposed to figure it out themselves, with images of a complete model on the box.

I also really miss the descriptions that Lego used to place in the consumer catalog! Just check it out, with puns and jokes, and an advertisement-style catchy headliner:

NOW THERE'S EVEN AN AIRPORT

This new LEGOLAND Airport comes with a real check-in, a van for the luggage, a control tower, and of course a dashing jet for the pilot and passengers.

"This is your captain speaking. Welcome aboard this LEGOLAND Jet, cruising at 2 feet. Expected flying time is up to you".
