The photos should be the following...

A) The aircraft modeled must be that of an actual aircraft.

B) The model should be a "SCALE" model.
meaning...
It should look like the aircraft that is being modeled. If the real plane had strut and wheel covers... so should the model(it should'nt have music wire struts). There should be no rx antennas showing in the photo. If the real plane had a 3 or 4 blade prop, and this is a picture of that plane(model) on the ground? Then the model should have a 3 or 4 blade prop, not a Zinger 20x10. etc...etc.

Think of this as a kind of "Top Gun" of photo threads.

And finally, that brings us to the most confusing of the requirements of the photo.
...C) The photo should be "of an angle that you would actually be looking at the aircraft" or "as the eye perceives it".
...meaning...Don't post the picture of that beautiful Mustang with a guy holding it during engine run ups.

Thanks to all for participating...it's going great.

Default 1/3 Stearman

That pilot must be over 20" high to match the 1/3 Stearman bipe. Image shot from the airfield control tower!

Mustang51,

Have you given up on this thread yet? If possible, you should edit the title of the thread to say something like these...

"Scale photos of scale models"
"Photos that make your scale model look like the full-size aircraft"
"These are models?! I though it was the real thing!"

I like the last one. "Best scale photo!" doesn't convey your desired theme of the thread to newcomers. Just an idea.

BTW... This is still my favourite on-going thread, even if there is the odd post of a "non-scale photo of a scale model" once in a while.

Thanks for your input JUICE.
I think what happens is that some folks kinda read the title of the thread and then just quick post a picture without even reading the posts. Most people grasp the idea of what is going on here. Every now and again it gets lost , that's why I try to post the "guide lines" of the thread every once and a while.
Besides... I think the title "Best scale photo" conveys it all.
My first post sets up the thread pretty well. I always read at least the first post of a thread to know what is going on within. Often, I will scan through to get "what is going on". I guess some people just don't take the time.

Thanks again juice, and a BIG THANKS to all who have participated.

Flicka,

The SBD photo rocks! Just got to see a full-scale SBD fly at the MAPS show this weekend... different "era" (SBD5)... same plane. Who's SBD is that? Any chance I can use that photo on my SBD site?

Thanks,

Neo

phillybaby... That is a kool shot... of my favorite jet no less.

These shots are looking great guys.
It's nice to see just how "real" a model can be made to look just by the p.o.v. of the camera.

Default Sunderland

Philybaby; don't think the Sunderland lost its tail by flying too close to its victim, the German sub. But, see what you mean at the tail area. Here is an after pic.

Default Scale pictures of the "JUG"

Wow Mustang51,
That really looks good!
The P-47 D is my all time favorite Airplane of WWII
It's cool to see an R.C. Plane that looks so authentic.
This is a really good thread, I wish I had some more realistic
planes so I could post on this site!

Thanks Paul. The 47 is also one of my favorite war birds, next to of corse... the P-51.
I appreciate your sensitivity and discretion in posting pictures Paul. Allot of fellows miss what the "air"(if you will), of what this thread is all about, you have not, and I thank you.

You know... You don't have to be the "owner" of the "subject" aircraft. If you have been to any meets, or just out at your field and have taken any "Scale Shots", then by all means, post them. That goes for all of you guys. I would like to see them.

HEY! GPUTT! your antenna is showing!!! WHATS WRONG WITH YOU?!?!? Don't you know this is supposed to be about SCALE looking aircraft!!???!!??

Geezz, I don't know what's with you bozos. Mustang's told you a hundred, no, a THOUSAND times - SCALE SCALE SCALE. Cant you even read simple DIRECTIONS??? It's amazing that any of you shallow gene pool, stubborn mule, insubordinate yahoos can even get an airplane off the ground!

NO ANTENNAS, NO GIANT FEET, NO CRAPPY LOOKING AIRPLANES, NO GARAGES, NO BASEMENTS, NO SIDEWALKS, PETS, SPIDERS, INSECTS, 6FT GRASS, AND NOTHING WE (mustang and I) DON'T LIKE. Basically, if a team of photographic technicians, aerodynamic engineers, and combat veteran-airline captain-stunt pilot-hero types (or Mustang) can prove in less than one week that the subject aircraft is not scale, you have BLOWN IT! Get it???

You should all sell your RC gear, unplug your computers and seek some counseling before you hurt someone. Above all else, don't spread those sub-par genes around like some bumbling idiot at an airport with a mutant SARS-Monkey-pocs disease.

ARGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH! I gotta go take my lithium.




- Sorry Mustang; I just felt we were over due for another meltdown and I figured you were getting tired of it. Great thread and to all you picture posters. WOW! Nice work.
