Another view! Oh my god I hope that isn't his RC antennae showing! It is, just like the real one!
Thanks for a great shot, Ben Lanterman.

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.
Wohhhh Dude... Do you feel better after that vent?

Default EAA Biplane

Well, I finally got the files down to a reasonable size. It's not mine, but I shot the pictures. It's an EAA Biplane.

Default BEST SCALE PHOTO

Okay, after looking at all these great scale photos, I had to put up a couple myself. This is of a modified Meister Scale Bf-109 which was built by my good friend and master craftsman Fred Menna of N. Scituate, RI. It is of the famous 'Black 6'. I wish that I still had this beautiful airplane, unfortuantely I sold her back around 1998. If anyone knows if she is still around please let me know.
Thanks,
Rob Bailey

Default Best Scale Photos

Okay, here is one of my old Meister Scale Zero built by Ty Brown of Kannapolis, NC. Ty did an outstanding job on this beauty. It was photographed at the Black Dirt Squadron field in Goshen, NY.
Another one that I wish I still had!
Thanks,
Rob Bailey

Default Best scale photo!

I guess now's a good time to re-post those photo guidelines...
I'll do this every now and then so everyone is up to speed.

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 photographing the real 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.
