    Looks to have been a good event. I do like the Rafale special scheme. Great shots as always. Mark

    Speckled Trout

    Sven You are on the right lines. The Speckled Trout programe was named while the test aircraft were based at Andrews but under the control of the Wright Patterson Flight Dynamics Laboratory. The original 'Speckled Trout' a/c 55-3126, gained the nickname in honour of Faye Trout, the civilian program monitor at the laboratory who apparently had a lot of freckles! Great picture by the way.

    Dawn Patrol at Stow Maries

    Delightful, evocative shots that ooze atmosphere. It's hard to believe these were taken in 2018! I really must get round to visiting Stow Maries one day, it looks a timeless gem of a place. Mark

    VC10 K.3 ZA150 Open Day and Taxi Run (More added 15/03)

    The RAF VC10s in common with Comets, Britannias, Tristars and probably other troop carriers I've forgotten, all had rearward facing seats. It's only with the arrival of the civil owned Voyagers that this policy has changed. The RAF view, was that rear facing seats offer greater safety in the event of a forced landing or ditching. Mark

    Airfix De Havilland Chipmunk 1/72

    Looks great and just shows that with skills, hard work and patience, despite its vintage, the old Airfix Chippy can still give the newer AModel kit a run for its money. Mark. Mark

    DH Sea Devon C Mk.20

    A cracking Sea Devon and thanks for showing and inspiring . I can't wait for the aftermarket decals to arrive as there are so many schemes to choose from. My preference would be a 207 Sqn RAF scheme from RAF Wyton in the early 80s. Mark

    VC10 K.3 ZA150 Open Day and Taxi Run (More added 15/03)

    Lovely shots AD. It's good to see that the Brooklands team are looking after ZA150 so well. She is an historic example and was the last of just 54 Tens built and served faithfully for many years with East African Airways before the RAF acquired her for K.3 tanker conversion. She was also the last VC-10 I ever had the privilege of flying on in 2013. This is a picture I got of her overflying the Falklands with 1435 Flt Typhoons in tow. look like a great day out despite the weather. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for future events. Mark

    Chinooks by night (more added 13/02/18)

    Great shots as ever AD that show creativity and clever use of the available light. You were lucky with the special scheme a/c as well Thanks for sharing Mark
  10. A cracking build of a rarely seen model. Thanks for sharing. Mark

    F-35 Question ?

    Dennis No 2 seat F-35s will be built. All training will be done synthetically using simulators. The designations so far are F-35A (USAF), F-35B (STOVL USMC) and F-35C (USN) with foreign operators using variants of the F-35A and F-35B. Regards Mark
  12. Simply lovely M'Lud! As others have said that original white/grey scheme really suits the Nimrod. Well done and thanks for sharing. mark
  13. An absolutely stunning build John. Out of interest which Roden boxing of the Britannia did you use and do you need to make many changes to RAF spec C.1? Mark

    DH Devon 1/72 decals

    Lord Riot I don't believe that there are any aftermarket decals out there at present as I too am eagerly looking. The good news though is Air Graphics are planning to produce a set, see link beneath. https://www.facebook.com/airgraphicmodels/?ref=nf&hc_ref=ARRh72AHowf3XNoLnt2cVS24geUdbhlGIZW74CmnYN-pZZvxrLY36SlDBw3Sgu4hj6E Mark

    Very rare bird

    Lovely pic of the Skycrane on duty in Scotland. And without wishing to hijack the thread here's a couple of S-64s I photoed in the last couple of years: This bird was seen on duty at Long Beach Ca in Nov 2014 CH-54A seen last year at the Ft Rucker Al Army Museum. Mark
