Northampton Aero Club C.1929 diorama now in the right section!


Recommended Posts

Hello all - 

 

I was just reviewing my FLIKR and realise that I put this up in the wrong section so thought I would lob it up now! This was one of the first of the Sywell series I've been working on for our Sywell Aviation Museum. Currently doing a PFA rally dio! 

 

Northampton Aero Club c.1929,  Sywell Aerodrome

 

Trio of DH.60s- Cirrus Moth G-EBSA (Jack & Geoffrey Linnell) Cirrus Moth G-EBRX (Northants Aero Club) and Gipsy Moth G-AAGS (Perry Tyzack) to 1/72. Amodel kits modified with Oxford vehicles, modified Metcalfe Pavillion. Oils, enamels, pigments and a bit of scratch building. Taken about 4 months.. not 100% accurate more a homage really as had to fit in the case and give an impression of what it was like!

 

Happy Xmas to you all and thank you for sharing all your amazing work - its inspiring!

 

Best regards

Quite lovely. Oh, for the days when you could tow your Aeroplane to the Aerodrome for a days flying.

Don't forget this is how gliders still travel

We have a collection of Gliders and trailers at Kirton Lindsay airfield, just up the road. It's been a while since I saw one travelling though.

Many thanks! Simpler times- tow your Moth to the field with your Morris 8, commit aviation then jump in the Bentley Blower and pootle down to the Kit Kat Club to find a popsie!  Salad days!
