  2. Hi Guys, Images from the Deutsches Technikmuseum in Berlin. The museum from the footbridge over the Lanwehr Canal. The C-47 used to sit outside the big terminal at Tempelhof. Europe 261 This is a model of the Deutsches Luftfahrt Sammlung, the Nazis' big aviation museum, which opened in 1936 to coincide with the XI Olympiade, the centrepiece of which was the Dornier Do X. Choccy fish if you can name all the aircraft. Europe 265 This is what the main entrance looked like; note the Spitfire at bottom right. The museum caught fire during an air raid in 1943 and most of the collection was destroyed, some airframes survived and are now in the collection of the MLP in Cracow. The Airco DH.9A at Hendon used to be there. Berlin Tour 15 This is a 'then and now' comparison. It was taken on Alt Moabit next to the Berlin Hauptbahnhof, just across the Spree River from the Reichstag. Berlin Tour 14 Arado Ar 96. Europe 266 Nord 1100 Noralpha. Europe 268 Ju 88G and Fi 156.

  3. Great photos and excellent tips as well. Those are impressively low shutter speeds, and the results are evident, Alpha Delta 210.
  4. The full size ones? No, they are the originals. That was Clement Ader's Avion III that he built in 1897 (obviously the outer covering has been replaced) and that Bleriot XI was indeed the one Louis Bleriot flew across the Channel in in 1909. The Dufaux helicopter was also the one that the brothers actually flew for the crowds at St Cloud. It wasn't large enough to carry a person, being a scale demonstrator only. Only the Deperdussin and Antoinette are reproductions.
  5. When the rain started midway through the day, we went over to the terminal and got some coffee and snacks as the food outlets were pretty shabby on the field. It was a good vantage point for departing aircraft. Europe 85 Europe 86
  6. The Musée des Arts et Métiers is in downtown Paris is a science museum and has a small aviation collection of interesting artefacts. The full size airframes are historic each in their own right, which makes this a worthy destination after visiting the Musée de L'Air at le Bourget, especially since the pioneer and Great War gallery there seems to have been stuck in refurbishment limbo for years now. Some images. By far the star at the museum is Clement Ader's Avion III. Europe 204 Ader's novel and complex steam engine that powered the Avion III. Europe 206 The vehicle gallery inside the old church. Europe 210 The ungainly Breguet R.U.1. Europe 211 Robert Esnault-Pelterie's R.E.P. of 1908. Europe 212 Louis Blériot's English Channel crossing XI. Europe 213 Not an aeroplane, but Marcel Leyat's Hélica D.21, which was known as "L'avion sans ailes" - the aircraft without wings. Europe 214 Another 'not an aircraft'; this bicycle was designed by Clement Ader. Europe 215 Model of a Deperdussin A. Europe 216 A model of an Antoinette monoplane. Europe 217 Swiss brothers Armand and Henri Dufaux's unpiloted hélicoptère of 1905, which they flew from the Parc de St Cloud near Paris. This is the full size vehicle. Europe 218 Thanks for looking.
  7. Very nice indeed. I was at the event at Carpiquet on 7 June; a bit badly organised and the weather didn't help matters, but your photos do it justice.
  8. A few 'normal' pictures of aircraft. L-29. Europe 229 G-91. Europe 233 Atlantic. Europe 234 RF-4E. Europe 236 Gatow. Europe 238 F-104G ZELL. Europe 239 Halberstadt CL IV. Europe 241 Casa 2.111 in disguise. Europe 243 Inside the main hall. Europe 244 The Chipmunk that carried out the last RAF flight over DDR controlled East Berlin from Gatow. Europe 245 Crashed Bf 108. Europe 246 Thanks for looking.
  9. Hi Guys, a look at the aviation collection at Gatow. I've been before and the aircraft outside are rustic and unkempt, which called for some experimental photography. I've been fiddling with contrast and exposure where appropriate. it's not to everyone's tastes, but here goes. Europe 227 Europe 228 Europe 230 Europe 231 Europe 232 Europe 235 Europe 237 Europe 240 More to come from Gatow.
  10. It astounds me to see the diversity of stuff they are producing and yes, I agree, Gary. I'm still waiting on a Sopwith Cuckoo - although in hindsight, that's exactly the obscure type they might be likely to produce. Fingers' crossed.
  11. One of their base colours. Maybe the manufacturers had an alterior motive! A better example spotted in Zossen and an example in the other popular base colour on display at the kitschy Trabiworld in downtown Berlin across the road from Goering's RLM building. Afrika Corps Trabbi Kriegsmarine Trabbi The Trabant would have been a nice wee car, if it wasn't so awful.
  12. Thanks, rossm. Now those decals look quite the business and replicate your panel lines excellently, including the upper wing fuel tank panels. I notice that the decal also has lines for the APU, it's worth remembering that not all the -100s had an APU fitted. Great work so far.
  13. Try Tegel in Berlin! A bit of a dump. It won't be upgraded although it's sorely in need of one, because of the promise of Brandenburg being finished, although when that will be is not known...
  14. Looking at this with interest. here are some images that might help with your build. Bear in mind these are of a Q300, but the nacelle and exhaust details are the same as the 100. The engine cowls are worth noting. These images are of left hand engine cowls, whereas the right hand ones are in reverse. On the left nacelle, the oil door, the small rectangular one in the triangular side cowl is on the outboard cowl, on the right hand nacelle it's on the inboard cowl. Also note the wee circle below the side cowl. On the outboard side of both nacelles this is the wing inspection light. Cowl inbd Cowl outbd The exhaust shroud on the Dash is called the fingernail, for obvious reasons. Note the natural metal panels on the top. Fingernail Exhaust upper The engine intake and spinner. The intake has a de-ice boot on it. Intake Noting the model, the windows look way too big and those fuel tank panels on the upper wing are way too small. If you need any more images, PM me.
