I downloaded the file, it's a very interesting job, I'd like to have two things:
The houses with the osm2city project and a maximum street density as this is a country with very few roads and few houses.

Thank you ie a beautiful work :)

Were a lot of these shared objects added quite recently? Because some of the airfields look terrible. I modeled two simple hangars for BISS years ago and now the field has buses, fuel tanks, lights, and aircraft on the field, but part of the beauty of these airfields are their simplicity. There are definitely little things you can add to BISS to make it look better but it's entirely overboard at the moment.

I'm not sure when those were added, it's mostly imported from terrasync. But I agree, the first thing I do when improving an airfield's objects is always to remove a huge lot of unrealistic ones

D-ECHO,

I'm 75% done with The Rainbow.
Put me down for the JetNet sculpture also.

Might be good to track tasks and owners within a file on your repo.

Progress pics:

The Rainbow sculpture is getting close to completion

JetNest sculpture - first draft - about halfway to completion

Known issue:
Rock pile is very rough. Rocks are intersecting, and the overall pile is too dome-ish

@D-ECHO, how do you want to incorporate these models into the scenery once they are done? I can send you a PR.

Thanks D-ECHO.
Not sure what to do with the pond perimeter. I've modelled the surface near the sculpture, but the pond needs to be bigger and circular. Maybe it is easiest if I just model the whole pond.
Calling it Done for now, but may revisit it later. The material of the egg and jet could be improved to make it more steel in appearance.

Will be pushing The Rainbow soon.

Rainbow sculpture looks amazing as well, thanks :) I have added screenshots of both to the dedicated wiki page (http://wiki.flightgear.org/Keflavik_Airport), hope that's okay :)

Of course, no concern. Night textures are also implemented.

I'm going to work on the north ramp terminal buildings next.
