Well guys... surely some fantastic phots and planes... and this thread is just GREaT!

I try to post two pics of two of my planes - i´ve been looking, and there is no feets, no high grass, no antenna, nobody near my planes....

So here they are:

At first, my Piper Warrior, spans 213cm, weigth 6,5 kg - engine OS FS 120 Surpass:

Short at final for the last trip to day...




Then my old Tiger Moth spans 150cm, enginge OS FS 48 Surpass

Also for the last flight that day



Thanks to Kasper Holger for taking thes pics

By the way... ive tried to make a site with a sort of the same rules, as described in here. So far its only in Danish, but i really woul like pics from some of your guys. The onle rules ive got for posting pics, is that there has to be a picture of the prottype/original plane - and then at least one of the model . Look at www.skalafly.dk (its wery new so far[:-] )

Regards Scaleflyerdk

Awesome Stuka pics my friend! Images like that make all the hard work on these birds worth it. Makes me feel like I'm standing in Europe circa 1943! I guess I better run for cover!

You should be real proud of that Snake!

theres new upload limits, but heres an easy way, first make sure your image is a Jpg and under 1240x840 in size. under 300-400 KB would be good too.. i do mine much smaller than this to make the upload quicker. then click ok and wait.. your pic will be uploading and say OK when done, then finish your replky and click ok

Just as a suggestion, pictures work great if they are somewhere around 480x320. That's plenty for getting the point across and doesn't slam those with dialups. It also keeps within the screen size of most visitors. That way they don't have to scroll from side to side.

Keep 'em coming though. They are great!

All of these are really great. You all should be proud of yourselves for putting together such nice tributes to the history of aviation.

I am sooooooo jealous! I'm sure I'll be able to do such nice work in about 20 years and as soon as I get my fingers unglued from this damned CA..

I must say I like the FW-190 posted by the thread author, but then again I am biased when it comes to Focke Wulfs

Thanks Petter! I must say... The 190 is up for sale, but I flew it again today, and have plans on flying her tomorrow. I should not have flown her because she flies so damn nice. Now I have second thoughts. What to do.. What to do.
-Mustang51

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.
