    1987 scale masters chapionships

    lol , i just got done watching and old vhs tape that was given to me a while ago. it is the 1987 u.s. scale masters championship in Vegas . it was funny to see that things changed so much but not much at all lol . A lot of those guys are either gone or old farts now. i was at the field about 4 years ago and it sure looks different now compared to back then just thought i'd share that . anybody want it posted on you tube?

    RE: 1987 scale masters chapionships

    Please. If I look at an old magazine, I am looking for those old kinds of pictures. I got to go to the 81 Nats as a kid, and though the turnout was low, I got to see the planes and meet the people which was a big deal for a 14 year old kid.

    Blocked in "my" country for copyright reasons. [] Ah, well. I recall accidentally coming across the US Scale Nationals (though I didn't know that's what they were at the time) in the early 80's at Mile Square Park in Southern Cal. I was just out for a walk and came across these really neat model airplanes that also flew. I particularly remember an F4 Phantom with a functional canopy and a drog shute that deployed on landing.

    RE: 1987 scale masters chapionships

    great video. Boy have things have changed in 25yrs. 40 and 60 size planes, Ducted Fan, no turbines and Frank Tiano flying. Just look at the names of some of the pilots. Charlie Chambers and his P 51. I remember that plane as one that over and above other planes because of its alum. covering. I didnt think it was possible to compete with a 46 size warbird.

    Wow, that's when model airplanes were model airplanes and not 1/2 size ultralights!

    RE: 1987 scale masters chapionships

    I lived in Vegas for 19 years, 1986-2005. I don't think I ever flew at that field. I THINK that it is a big soccer complex now, and the flying moved to the Silver dome. But I could be wrong. Either way, nice video.
    If its not a warbird, Its just a target.

    RE: 1987 scale masters chapionships

    Is that how the Bennet Mem. field looked then? WOW, has it changed. I think LVRC still flies from there. In the video its crazy watching the cars drive at the end of the flight line during take offs.

    Thank you so much for sharing. I have posted a note on the Scale Masters web site on the forum and many are watching it there as well.
    I have never seen this video and what a pleasure it has been. Thank you again. Mel Santmyers.

    RE: 1987 scale masters chapionships

    Great video WB1, thanks for sharing. I passed the link around to our One Eighth Air Force mailing group which includes members Kent Walters, Bob Frey, Al Casey, and Brian O'Meara, all of which competed at the event and were shown in the video. A real blast from the past that I'm sure they will get a kick out of!

    PS - A little birdy told me you might have some pictures of "Perestroika" amongst your collection. Any chance you have some close ups of the various markings on the bird? Mine is very nearly ready for finish work. Any help much appreciated.
