THIS is the page for your aero-model pictures. 

If you're not into digital photography or scanning pictures, you can always send photos by regular mail - it's not too pricey; a batch of five or six photos costs $1.00 airmail postage from the USA, for example. My home address is on the home page.

 

 

Last week there was a trio of Piper Cubs on the Test Valley Flying Club field (Ludgershall, Hants, UK); this week there was an irresistible pair of Wots·Wot models owned and flown by father and son, John and Neil Scratchley. They were each done out in different colour styles and looked so nice I just couldn't resist taking a few shots for ModelFlight!

This is Neil's little beauty, immaculately finished in what happens to be my favourite colour combination of blue and silver and powered by an OS 65LA.

 

 

 

And this one is Dad's (John).

The striking yellow and red design gives it a traditional 'aerobatic' look. John's model is fitted out with an Irvine Q72 which John suggested might be regarded as a little 'over the top'!

The well-known Wots·Wot is a Chris Foss designs model with a 48" wingspan.

And here they are lined up together in the pits - I thought they looked really smart . . .

I went along to Wings & Wheels Model Spectacular at North Weald Airfield (UK) last Sunday (9th July). Unfortunately, the wet and windy weather curtailed activities to some extent and the only photo I got was this large-scale Liberator circling overhead in the sultry sky as I left the car. When I went to get a nice detailed close-up of her on the apron, the model was all covered over with a tarpaulin to protect her against the elements! Ah, well, I can try again next year . . .

If you've got any shots from the show - or any other show you've visited, of course - send 'em to me so we can all enjoy them!

 

Now let's enjoy a sight of your favourite aero model - large or small, kit or scratch built, ARTF, rotary or fixed-wing - and they don't have to be perfect, either. If you like it, let's see it! 

Just use the e-mail facility at the top of any ModelFlight page or send details and pictures by regular mail.
