Seems like you did okay from these, except I would politely insist that the Ground-crew take their damn trolley out of shot? :grimacing:

Stagger2, thanks you say I've done OK - other than the crew taking the trolley away was there something else I should have done to these photos to make them more than OK?

I would take an "okay"! Most viewers are silent.
The car is of course a Railton.
Personal opinion is against the starburst in the nose light. But a nice set of a wonderful aircraft.

Thanks Amp.

As for the starburst I accidentally had the camera at low iso leading to high exposure time which in turn led to srarburst, I can't claim to have included it for artistic effect ;0)
