    Last but not least - here is my 1/4 scale Bristol Scout, built in 1975, and still flying today. This model has the very first Quadra 35 engine sold in the USA. I became the first Quadra dealer as a result. It was the start of "Giant Scale" as we know it today.

    The model made it's first flights on two geared Webra 60's that I put together in the form of a twin, but the Quadra answered all the questiions and solved all of the engine problems.

    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.

    Yup... looks like that time again indeed. Thanks Phillybaby, and SDC.

    Viper1.
    You are my hero.
    Now that, my friends, is forcefully hoisting this thread back on track, and "raising the bar" in the process.
    Outstanding.
    Tell us, or just me , about your cockpit. Love the buckles on the belts. Brass? Handmade?
    Beautiful work, mate!

    I am amazed. I have to ask. How many months were you working on that cockpit? It's a work of art.

    Thank You, Thank You! #deep bow#

    Don't remember exactly the time on the cockpit, about 2 to 3 mnths, (on and off)
    The buckles are made from thin litho plate, and some pieces of music wire, easy to make actually.
    Thanks again for the compliments guys!

    Regards,
    Gert

    Sea Fury in flight

    This is my new Sea Fury, modelled after a local one that was destroyed in a fatal crash 5 months after the owner let me into his hangar with my 2 year old to get documentation and detail photos. I'm sorry that I won't get to show him my "copy" of his plane.

    P-40

    I spotted something,
    The P-40 in the last picture only has two prop blades.
    The real ones had three,
    Right?
    But I really love the picture.
    And something like that is pretty hard to change
    Sleek is not just neat.
    It\'s also very hard to beat.
