    Are any of following items ever produced in H0:

    1) international (and also domestic) airport terminals, out of Heljan's

    2) high- rise modern hotels, out of Heljan's

    3) univercity/ college campuses, including student dormitories

    4) water parks

    1) Probably not. Airports are BIG and trying to model them takes more space than most of us have room for.

    2) No. There are articles on how to build a modern high-rise using Plexiglas and vinyl tape, but high-rise hotels are also big and seldom located near trains, and big buildings don't sell well.

    3) Not specifically, but it shouldn't be too hard to find suitable buildings--I'd recommend looking at some of the European manufacturers' town-hall type buildings--brick, somewhat ornate, and just waiting to be covered in ivy. Student dormitories could be made from any brick-building kit with a lot of windows--any sort of older hotel building would do.

    4) That's a tough one--you mean like an amusement park?

    I mean a water park/ an aquapark: water slides, pools, children section, saunas, zoo, safari, animal circus etc.

    i'm fairly certain they do make a working log flume ride.

    yeah, Faller makes the "pirates Island" wild water log ride, walthers # 272-140430. it apperently works with real water, and will cut you back $224.99. no dobut it could be kit bashed into a tube ride and what not.
