Default 2008 Mint Julep Photos

Scale meets are a lot of fun for me, as I have as much fun taking pictures as competing. And my knees don't knock when I shoot pics.

Here are a few of the better ones. I still have more to go through, so probably more later.

Other shooters, please feel free to post yours as well. I'm especially looking forward to seeing the shots of the Dale Locander's 1/3 DVII "pruning" the tops of those big trees across the runway.

I won't have pilot's ID for some (for now). Perhaps others can help with that.






























More later.

I love that funky blue airliner! What's the official designation for that?

The Stinson Trimotor is different looking. I kind of like it too.

Slow at work, so here are more.....


Greg Hahn's wonderful B-17 fights the gusty cross winds.


This was what the DVII brought back from it's tree pruning. There were leaves in the horiz stab bracing too.




Martin Justis's Buker Jungmeister. First scale competition for Martin.






M favorite! This great looking FW190-D was totally destroyed unfortunately. High speed stall was the culprit the pilot told me.


Gary Wild's Chipmunk (I think).




Greg and Cindy bring the B-17 back to the roost until the next flight.


Turbine powered F9F panther looked great. If you like jets. Heck, even if you don't it was cool.


This flier did pretty well with this little Cub in the wind.


As did this Hangar 9 Camel.


Steve Ort (Old Scale Guy) did well with his GP Pawnee ARF.






Yes, it was brutally gusty. Bob Underwood did well to fight the winds and bring his Staggerwing ARF in with only very minor damage. Note the pieces of landing gear doors. I was glad (not the right word really) to see a vertern flier like Bob as "dry mouthed" after a hairy flight as I am (after most competion flights).

Dave,
We missed you being there as well.

The only upside to that was you weren't there to publicly chastise me for not starting on the DIII yet. )

I've got another 30 or so that are probably worthy of posing here ( I shot about 300) that I'll tweak and up-load later.

For now, here's an "assembled" series that I took of Eric (Alford ?) flying that fantastic P-38 in team scale. PhotoShop is a wonderful thing.

Great shots, Mike! Thanks for posting these. That multiple shot of the P-38 is something special! BTW, it looks like the "pilot" of that DVII has passed out!

Great photographs Mike - Good to see some can combine hobbies, flying and tree pruning[sm=teeth_smile.gif] But seriously, he was very lucky to get that back alive! Particularly like the P38 composite shot and the individual puffs of exhaust smoke on the flying shot of the Cessna are rather good.

Junk is a pretty strong word, and I feel unapropriate, regardless of personal feelings about the judging. And I believe the judges are volunteers, and only human.

Anyway, this is a thread about MJ Photos, so let's keep it that way please.

A few more.....
















Taking Off on it's final sortie.






Bridges At Toko Ri is on as I'm editing these. How that for strange?



That's about all from me folks. How about some of you others?

Hi Jason,
Thanks! Sorry, no pics of your Christan Eagle. Not that I don't like them, but it's hard for me to get pics of all of the planes, especially when I'm flying too. This year was even tougher as my knee was acting up, and getting around was not much fun. I did a lot of sitting and watching.

You did a great job flying in that wind!

Hello Mike,
I really appreciate seeing the pictures of my FW190 from the Mint Julip. Those are the only ones of it in flight that I have seen. You took a lot of fantastic shots of the planes.

Respectfully,
Duane Hoff
