I guess now's the time to re-post those photo requirements...

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.

Sean,
The black and white really works well with the subject. Good call.
If you rolled the plane through the grass to knock some of it down, it would look like it landed in a pasture. Maybe a pilot climbing out or inspecting the plane and it would be hard to tell its not a vintage photo. Looks great!

Thanks guys! It would proably look better on a paved surface...say an old airfield or something. that grass is our clubs runway...you can see how wide it is! It's like landing on a lake....although sometimes it is still missed. don't ask....

Hey JGrc
That Spit would look really scale if it had a 4 blade prop, or even a 3 blade.
I love the effects though, !

Default Here's Mr. Ed

My best effort. Mr. Ed used to belong to a fellow named Bob Weymouth here in Maine.

What do you guys use to shrink the pix down but still maintain the quality? This was a 35mm shot scanned in at 890x575. But when I resize it, it goes all yucky...

I use an HP scanjet to scan photo's that scans at 100% which you can change by percentage but after scanning I send the picture to a folder and change the pixels from the toolbar. I use irfan view for all my images and just reduce the pixel size to about 700 max to be able to post images here. If it says the image is too large I reduce it to 650. Don't know any other way to change the size since all i've ever used is irfan view.

I DOWNLOADED THE NEW PAINTSHOP PRO beta version 8 from www.jasc.com

not sure if it is still available from the site.

then resample the image to size.

no expiry date, and so far not a single crash...bargain eh?
