That little Phantom base in Japan

Post by CH79 »

Hello,

Due to workload I made my visit to Hyakuri early November (5th-9th) and miss the show and special schemes happening at this time (1st-2nd Dec).

A bummer, I know. However, I did get to see the base in all its operational glory for a few sunny days. See how far you get scrolling this little lot. Here's my take...

Thanks for looking and all the best for Christmas and the New Year,
Cheers,
Chris

Super set of photo's Chris. I was there for a few days, we met up one of the towers, I've still to edit my pictures which surprisingly are similar to yours.
It was nice to meet you, Colin
