Re: Snowbirds incident

Sadly the crew member who passed today was Jenn Cassey, Jenn was the also the public affairs officer for the 2018 CF-18 demo team. The very friendly person who kept a lot of people on here up to date on the Mach Loop pass. She was one of the best PAOs I've ever worked with. RIP Jenn.

Lockdown build 2.. 1/48 KittyHawk SU-34

Hello all Build number 2 during the COVID shutdown. This time the KittyHawk 1/48 SU-24 Fullback. I fell in love with this aircraft the first time I saw it at MAKS 2017. I always wanted a 1/48 scale kit of it but the HobbyBoss copy was way out of my price range for a 1/48. As I gave up hope, KittyHaw...

Re: Sptifire V - after some time!

haha 25 years.. I've got the Cutty Sark started about 30 years ago and it's still sitting at around 80% done. I know what it is like to shelf a kit for a long time. Good to see you get around and finish it off. :up:

Re: Lock down mega build Week 4 update

Great work on the two seater Lighting cockpit! The photo etch that small would have drove me nuts and probably binned. The Vega I can only imagine being about the size of £5 coin at 1/72 :wink: So for the amount of detail I can just say wow! Looking forward as usual to seeing how the Victor finishes...

Re: MAKS 2019

Sultan of Wings From my experience in 2017 you are not really close to the aircraft near the river. Close enough but not so close that you could get away with 70mm an under. Just an example.. I shot this with a Sigma 50-500mm EXIF shows I shot it at 360mm and this is also a small crop. In reallity l...

I like the idea of the media platform but having seen a picture it looks a bit small. Wondering if it gets crowded and ends up in the Russian equivalent of a bun fight?

Re: MAKS 2019

I'd say at least an hour walk.. as there really is no direct way to the field without cutting through some dense forest and farmer fields. If the police enforce the area. I'd bet walkers would be allowed. It was the cars parked in front of peoples houses they and the locals were having a problem with.
