  1. Images from the rather vast military museum in the centre of Brussels. The aircraft hall is impressive, but some of the machines are run down and desperately need attention, and a good clean. Caravelle. Europe 422 Maurice Farman MF.11. Europe 423 Meteor and Spitfire. Europe 424 Spad XIII. Europe 425 Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter. Europe 426 Ju 52/3mg3e. Europe 427 C-119. Europe 428 RAF RE.8. Europe 429
  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
  3. 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.
  4. 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. E
  5. Morning all a family holiday in perranporth cornwall is looming and I will at some point be needing to disappear off somewhere on my own (only so much family time can be managed in one go) so any suggestions about museums, shops and general places of interest to the average modeller within reasonable driving distance for a day trip would be very much appreciated Matt
  6. This is a second Curtiss Robin record holder model, built 3 years ago, that now is at the Greater St Louis Air & Space Museum. This Robin as mentioned before was especially converted for the task at hand, and many differences from the stock Robin can be observed. To start with the catwalks and their additional supports in the nose area which allowed the crew to exit the plane and service the engine in flight; the rearranging of windows and doors; the elements associated with the massive fuselage fuel tank; the necessary changes in the fuselage top to facilitate the refueling op
  7. Hi Guys, Photos I took whilst at the PLA Tank Museum north of Beijing. Link to more photos below. Type 96 T-34/85 2 Type 85 I Storm 1 Type 97 row Type 59s row Link to more below: https://www.flickr.com/photos/147661871@N04/albums/72157668076731849/with/25597609378/
  8. The City Of Norwich Aviation Museum, is located on the edge of Norwich Airport, this was RAF Horsham St Faith.
  9. The Chinese love an odd theme park, see Oriental Land near Shanghai. This one, located on the shore of the Bohai Sea a quick bullet train ride from Beijing (50 minutes at 300 kph) is perhaps the bizarrest, celebrating Russian culture with a former Soviet Navy aircraft carrier as its centrepiece. Binhai 11 Shenyang J-6s in various states of decay are dotted about the place, decorated in faux Soviet markings. Binhai 13 Shenyang JJ-6s are not common display aircraft, so it was good to see this one. Based on the MiG-19, the original manufacturer did not build a tw
  10. Just about finished, this is my Sword 1/72 Harrier T4N built to represent XW268 as it sits today at the Norwich Aviation Museum, Norfolk. The kit has been chopped about as appropriate and there is the addition of an Airfix IFR probe which was kindly donated to me. Ignore the base, as this is just something rough for it to sit on until I can do a better one! The model has been painted by hand using Humbrol enamels and Model Color acrylics. The tarp over the cockpit area is a piece of 5p supermarket carrier bag over a plastic strip frame. I had all manner of problems with the Swor
  11. About an hour outside Shanghai is Oriental Land, a real odd amusement park type place that has some interesting military hardware, including a full scale aircraft carrier mock up! The place is truly bizarre. Images and a link to more pictures. read the descriptions under the images on my page, which will give you more info. Chinese aircraft carrier Xian H-6 Shenyang J-5 Harbin H-5 The carrier deck Link to page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/147661871@N04/albums/72157662528903148/with/26576771499/
  12. The de Havilland Aircraft Museum, which is sometimes know as the Mosquito Museum. This is just inside the M25 north of London and in an ideal location for a double visit with RAF Hendon. Dedicated to de Havilland aircraft, where else can you see three mosquito aircraft in the same location? They have the Prototype Aircraft, with a Bomber type aircraft, and a gun nosed fighter one as well.
  13. After a long time being silent, I thought i'd return and share a few images from a recent visit to the land of flat, Lincolnshire! I went there on a week break and for a slightly special occasion and visited the likes of East Kirkby and Newark(on-trent) air museum. I am a black and white person and always exploring types of editing. I really do hope you enjoy them! Firstly, Newark Air Museum: Avro vulcan XM594 from the left side rear: XM594 from the right side rear: XM594 from the wing on the right side: XF369 Vickers Varsity Bristol Hercules Engine showing its detail: ZA176 A Ha
  14. If you are in the West Country then you MUST visit the Helicopter Museum at Weston-Super Mare.
  15. Not strictly a WIP, I know, but this is the only forum which encompasses all eras. Tomorrow is the annual open day for the FAA Museum reserve collection, and I am going with my trusty camera. In my case I am particularly looking for some pics of a) the Barracuda restoration project and a Harrier T4N, but I know I will end up taking loads of shots of others. Anyway; any particular requests?
  16. Guys - I am going to the FAA Museum at VL tomorrow, armed with my trusty camera - I want a load of walkround shots (Swordfish, Albacore, Lynx, Sea King, Sea Fury, Walrus...) I'll put them all up on here, but does anyone have any specific requests before I go - any "I just need a shot of the starboard oleo on a Corsair..." or whatever?
  17. I have been wanting to visit the RAF Museum for a long time. Yesterday, despite the weather I convinced the wife to accompany me on a visit. I specifically wanted some close up picts of the Spitfire. I was so dissapointed. The lighting was terrible. It dull and gloomy. Never mind the poor conditions as far photography.
