  1. The website is excellent! Thanks for posting the link as it's not one I have come across.
  2. I don't buy either SAMI or MAM and therefore don't pay any attention to which issue is on the shelves of my local newsagent but given the topic of this thread I decided to have a look this morning and for what it's worth both are the May issues.
  3. Nothing like a nice bracing day by the seaside! Pretty inconsiderate of those birds to get in the way of your shots. Have you got the salt off the camera and lens yet?
  4. Nice set of shots. The clouds in the first two shots in particular provide some nice atmospherics.
  5. That is very nice indeed! So nice to see and F16 that is not grey!
  6. My copy of SAM arrived this morning and I have just finished reading your article on this build. Superb model and a very enjoyable article which will prove very useful for when I get around to building the one in my stash.
  7. It has been announced today that the Avalon Airshow due to take place at the beginning of December has been cancelled. The biennial show was originally scheduled for last February but was postponed owing to Covid and owing to the resurgence in infections it has been decided to cancel the show. For anybody outside Australia (and probably the state of Victoria) this of course is academic as the borders are currently closed and from comments made by government ministers likely to remain so until some time next year. Nevertheless it is a huge shame that what would have been a wonderful celebration of the RAAF's centenary the show now won't go ahead. The 2023 show is scheduled to take place between February 28th and March 5th.
  8. If a picture speaks a thousand words then your first three shots of the Wessex sums up any written description of the weather! A shame the weather spoiled what looked like a rather good day but it looks like you made the best of it from the shots. Cheers for posting them.
  9. A lovely selection there. Nice to see some different helicopters too. Thanks for posting.
  10. I was bemused by the Twin Otter until I saw your comment that it wasn't part of the show. The banking Hurricane and rear three quarter shots of the Spitfire in colour are peaches!
  11. That makes at least two of us! Sad thing is they appear to have virtually no monetary value (not that I have any desire to sell them although my wife has a different view of course).
  12. A curious choice in the biplanes! Has the A400 now been certified to drop paratroops? Good set of shots though and thanks for posting them.
  13. Wonderful! What a terrific opportunity. Thanks for sharing.
  14. Fabulous set of shots! It must be rather nice to have that airfield in your area.
  15. Looks like a very good event. Love the Sea King shots!
  16. Some lovely angles there. I can't help but notice how low some of the pilots are in the fighters' cockpits. Not the easiest view when on the ground!
  17. A very nice set of images indeed! Looks like it was a very good event. Love the shots with the pilots in the foreground and the aircraft overhead.
  18. Cracking piece of work! I have several FM JASDF F4s in the stash so interested to see how they might turn out.
  19. That is a truly super job! Beautifully put together and well done on the patience required to add all the stencils: as others have commented they really add to the model and the gorgeous colour scheme really makes it stand out.
  20. Great sets of shots! Thanks for sharing them.
  21. Lovely shots! Every time I see images of OW I am humming "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines" in my head!
