|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

|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

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.
