THIS is the page for aero-model pictures - your own, or others you've seen at the club or at a show; they are all welcome if they're nice to look at! 

If you're not into digital photography or scanning pictures, why not send me some 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 address is on home page.

These models are the craftwork of DON COE.

I very much enjoyed a visit to Wings & Wheels Model Spectacular held at North Weald Airfield on Saturday 30th June. Here are a few pictures I brought back. Unfortunately, there was no detailed printed programme, so I cannot identify all the models or their owners .
varioairwolf.jpg (16727 bytes) Vario Air Wolf, flown magnificently by Vario's demonstrator pilot DAVE HOLLINS. The model has a carbon fibre shell, weighs 23lbs and is powered by a Zenoah 23 petrol engine.  With 12 servos on board, she has a working under-belly rocket launcher, retracting guns, working navigator lights and retracting undercarriage.  
seaotter.jpg (22526 bytes) A beautiful large-scale model of a Sea Otter - looked magnificent in the air. In the background, Dave's Air Wolf sits on the tarmac where he kindly moved it for me to take its picture.
b17.jpg (20000 bytes) Here's one I shot especially for Steven Bolin - the B-17 Memphis Belle, looking suitably weather and battle-worn.
hileg.jpg (20564 bytes) There were several of these hi-legged beasts around on the field - can anybody identify it, please?
stefanschallenger.jpg (29779 bytes) Star of the show in my book was 26-year old STEFAN WURM from Germany with his immaculate Challenger. This chap's flying display was breathtaking and absolutely wonderful to behold - watch out Christophe, he's after you!
