I would not recommend using anything by "FGMEMBERS" for various reasons, even though I can't find anything too bad about this repository specifically. Considering the models in this repository are mostly just a clone from terrasync, it's better to get it from there, even though at the moment I don't know how.

[Update]

After searching a bit: this is where all shared models are: http://flightgear.sourceforge.net/scenery/Models/

And another update, when using Linux, you can open a terminal and type in:
wget -r -np -nH -R index.html http://flightgear.sourceforge.net/scenery/Models/
to get all models

The model package you recommended seems to do the job with considerably less storage than mine.

Some of the airports look so bare. May I add some shared objects using your model package?

How does a person get new scenery like this included in the public scenery package? Or is that just not happening?

You can submit objects via scenery.flightgear.org Terrain is submitted by talking to the maintainer of terrasync

Still a bit I'm trying to understand.
It was just a thought.

The only thing about the Models is a lack of small airport terminals.

Great! Now I have an addiction to Blender. :)
That appears to be the answer to my challenge.
Maybe I'll build my own FBO at St Kitts.

Edit: I gather by experimentation that the scale in Blender is in meters.
Little buildings look ok at 3 meters tall.

Correct. Units are meters.

I've always wanted to own my personal bar and grill. Now I have one with a ramp.
