  1. Thanks all, much appreciated. I'm my own worst critic when it comes to my models, as I'm sure most of us are, so to me the errors stick out like a sore thumb. I'm not overly concerned as there were a lot of cobwebs to blow off, and I'm glad you guys like it regardless. Thanks again, Shaun
  2. Evening all, Thought I'd share my latest completion, my first for nearly two years, and it really shows! Tamiya's 1/72 FW 190 D9. Being horribly out of practice meant I made a catalogue of errors with this one, particularly around the canopy framing which frankly looks awful, and my inability to get a nice, tight line finish from the airbrush without spatter means this falls into the category of looking good from a few feet, but its nice to have got something built and regain some enthusiasm after such a long hiatus...

  3. The Eastern end has always had a ladder enclosure. Traditionally up West, where it is generally quieter, there hasn't been a need, and those of us who use ladders are always happy to set up a few rows behind the fence safe in the knowledge we won't be anyone's way and vice-versa. There's always the odd exception to the rule, but there's usually someone on hand to 'politely' remind them to move back. As I said though this year the Western enclosure was much larger with ladders only permitted in the left half of it. Still not really a problem, but with a larger fence in place towards the left hand end it was necessary to set up right on the fence. Hope that helps.
  4. Arrivals were shot from a step ladder, I prefer the higher persepctive to reduce the effect of heat haze that can be such a problem during July, but the redesigned enclosure this year had a higher fenceline in places that required a ladder anyway. Departures were shot from the FRIAT grandstand. Thanks for the additional comments all, much appreciated.
  5. Thanks very much chaps Moving onto the showdays, Friday was spent ambling around, enjoying more of the static and stalls, which is something I rarely do these days and made the show as a whole a lot more enjoyable. I did still pick and choose the star items to photograph however, trying out differing locations away from my usual crowd centre vantage point and taking the opportunity to work out where best to be for the Rafale Marine demo in particular... Swiss Hornet, the unexpectedly superb F-35A mini solo and that Flanker display were the stars of the day for me.

    Yeovilton Air Day 2018

    Why would I have been? I wasn't anywhere I shouldn't have been during the Friday and Saturday when the restrictions are in place....
  7. Morning all, Hopefully everyone isn't bored to tears with RIAT images just yet, as I thought I'd start my own thread from a thoroughly enjoyable seven days in Gloucestershire. Editing has been slow going and I've only made a decent pass through the arrrivals days so far; I'll add the showdays and departures in due course. Tuesday was a slow and steady day, although not the complete disaster I was anticipating up the West end with 09 in use. The larger enclosure seemed to roughly half the distance to the runway threshold from my usual position, reducing the effect of heat haze on the approaching aircraft. Such a shame it ended up being our only opportunity to shoot the Atlantique, a very photogenic display judging by the reharsal. Lovely to ctach the 12F special Rafale for the first time too.

    Yeovilton Air Day 2018

    Thanks again. The Mk II is a stunning piece of glass, pin sharp, even at 400mm and in poor light. Can't recommend upgrading your Mk I enough, you certainly won't regret it

    Yeovilton Air Day 2018

    Thanks all, much appreciated, and glad they were of interest All these were taken using my trusty 100-400L Mk II. The Thursday and Friday shots were taken off base where I positioned myself closer to the aircraft. Though I don't doubt the 230m line wasn't breached by the fast jets on the showday there was a feeling that everything was closer. That said, one or two are a sizeable crop... Ask and ye shall receive! I'll round this thread up with one last handful before I get stuck into my RIAT shots.

    Op Wyvern Tor 2018

    Thanks all, glad they were of interest. Much of the reason of post my images here is so they can be used as reference, so hopefully these are of use given the state some of these Merlins are in! 'Charlie' and 'Alpha Charlie' are currently operated by 845NAS. 846 NAS stepped in for the last couple of hours of the Sunday with 'Bravo' and 'Kilo (not pictured) as the 845 cabs had to return to Yeovilton. Thanks again, Shaun

    Op Wyvern Tor 2018

    Morning all, Thought I'd share a selection of images from a superb weekend down on Dartmoor shooting the Merlins supporting Ten Tors. This is always a highlight of my year that presents some unique photo opportunities, and this year we decided to make a full weekend of it. Saturday was spent playing it safe around the HLS, with both cabs very active during the day. A fine day all round despite the general lack of sunshine.

    Shuttleworth Season Premiere

    Thanks all, glad they were of interest. Quite possibly, it's exactly the sort of thing I'd do! I was positioned almost directly behind the Lysander, one row back from the front, but repositioned nearer to the first row of cars when I saw the Lanc approaching from behind. What a great pass it was too, a shot I've been after for years
