That Dornier Wal is fantastic. The nose has an insect-like look.  :thumbsup:
And I'd have thought the other was a very normal FW-190, too subtle for me.  :banghead:

The Green Meenies are pretty cool. I'll have to google Mini Wheels to see what that's all about.

The flying boat looks great as well.

I saw this at the Gloucester Show today, pretty much the ONLY Whiff in the place!

There was an 'updated' Beriev Be-10 'Mallow' but it was so subtle I'm not sure anyone would have noticed properly.


Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

That TSR  has done the rounds. Ive seen it  a fair few times.
Doesnt deminish the quality of it on bit thou. Thats one hell of a paint job.  :thumbsup:
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Actually the whole of that stand was a Tigermeet theme, some glorious stuff there. I should have taken a pic of the whole thing.  :banghead:

Sounds familiar.  Hindsight is always 20/20. Too late to "run" back up there I presume.  :wacko:


Coincidentally I think the actual Tigermeet is going on right now. The Hesja-Art Photography guy keeps posting new shots of them. "Weekend with tigers," he says.  It's hard to go wrong with Tigermeet stuff.  :mellow:

This link goes to one of my favorite shots on the Facebook page where there are others, naturally. I'd post a photo directly here but I'm not sure the legality of it all so I'll play it safe.   ;D

Ballarat NNL.
Primarily a car show there were not too many aircraft or armour whiffs (although someone entered a Kawanishi seaplane painted in Sea Giraffe and contour line camo).
Not enough pics as my phone ran flat.

This is neat - You can't quite see it but the grille is Iron Mans face!

Yep.  Alan built it.  He claims to be embarrassed by it but keeps bringing it to the show.

Ha!  Hilarious. I think it's too cool for school. Now I want to see all kinds of hot-rod appliances.  :mellow: :mellow: :mellow:
