They look beautiful! Makes me want to get some more F-RSIN Britannias and create a production line as you have done. Who are they by, if you don't mind me asking? F-RSIN or something else?

Thank you for the compliment. They are Roden kits and very good they are too . I have an F-RESIN Brit as well but on comparison whith the Roden I have decided to standardise  with the latter. The only way that I could think of doing these schemes is because thankfully Ray at 26 decals has provided a nice range of decals. However, the wingless one will have to be hand painted as no decals exist at the moment. I am keen to do this as my father and I painted the real thing many years ago and I  helped sign write it as well. It will I hope become All Cargo Airlines  5y-ayr.

That Asr Turas example takes me way back, they used to fly race horses to Marshall's Airport Cambridge. My sister had a house right on the perimeter with a car port that I could sit on an plane spot! Somewhere I've got some photos of it.

Looking good. Who doesn't love a nice set of Bristols, eh?

 

(Sorry, but someone had to say it. No doubt I'll get spanked.)

 

As for the photography, try not to have more light coming from behind the subject than there is from the front. It confuses the camera's light meter and you get underexposed subjects.
