last but not least, the stunning P-47 "Tarheel hal". Its a TopFlite Giant ARF powered by a 60ccm engine. Again the twoblader disturbes a bit ...

Btw. the P51 crash at his third flight whilest malfunction right flap. It flipped and was completely destroyed [] ..... really completely

Hi Matthias,

Nice pictures, and this P-51 must have been equipped with the seldom-seen V-14 engine. Interesting!

Absolutely! It totally looks like a real photo of an actual magazine (with an airplane on the cover) to me! Here's one from me (my model, the magazine editor's photo).

It's my photo and Scott Lee's Sopwith Pup. I like the added diorama pieces in yours to help 'sell' the image. Nice!

Outstanding model and model photograph as always! But, just to let you know Neil, some of your more recent uploads are looking a little "over-processed" on my monitor. It's the look I get when I overdo the shadow recovery or over-reduce the highlights. They look somehow don't look as crisp and zippy as the images you were uploadng at the beginning of this thread.

Whew, everybody on this particular page of the thread might as well put your forks down, cause that Me262 just took the cake.

ZZ.

Looks like a pull out after a strafing run, and niiiiiice exhaust waves. I prefer WWI, but c'mon, thats a freakin awesome shot. Well done

Hi Fletch,

Unfortunately, because of certain unscrupulous people were ripping off my pictures, I now have to post my pictures in low quality resolution. I used to save pictures to max resolution quality for the forums ie 3-400Kbs. Whereas now they're mostly around the 100Kbs or less. which means they're not quite as sharp as the should be. I'm very sorry about this, but when you see your pictures being used by traders who haven't even bothered to ask if they can use your pictures - it really hacks (a strong expletive can be used here!) me off. I should add that there are traders etc using my picture - I've never refused a request & usually send them big multi meg super high quality pictures to use & these guys usually give me a name check.

TTFN,
Neil

I totally understand. It's very uncool, if not downright unethical to use someone else's photo for one's own (commercial) purpose. At the very least they should offer a photo credit (and/or a one-time fee). I was once paid $5,000 by a publisher because one of their authors had plagiarized from an article I wrote for one of the US photography magazines.

Likewise, it's perfectly understandable to post lower res images. It's hard enough to get a magazine to pay for images anymore, but having them stolen is even worse.

Hi Guys,

Totally agree with you, both. I don't like posting sub-standard pics, but what can you do? [&o]

TTFN,
Neil

Put in a Watermark, but then, that kinda screws the photo again too, so...oh well.

Mmmmmmh, just thinking,

You should have a watermark that only permanent attached to the photo when you download it, so the screen version stays clean to look and admire it.

BTW, Vampire, got some more photos of your vampire? It's one of those great funky Brit aircraft designs that are so rarely modeled.
