Nice to see you guys again. I've got my mojo back...

GTX

Love the tank (though all look damn good!)

What scale is the Boeing Skyfox?

I lurked around the halls on the lookout for other Whiffs, and was quite surprised how few there were compared to other shows recently. No matter, what there was was of superb quality, viz these two batches of pics.

The first lot were all on the 1/144 SIG stand, so the A-10 firebomber at the end is about 4.5" wing span!

There was an excellent production version F-103A as well, but my cam made a total bosh of focusing the piccie, and I didn't check it either.  :banghead:

The second batch were all from a superb display of British Experimental 'Protoypes', some that did manage to get built and fly, some that just got built, and some that never got off the drawing board.

For me it was the Stand of the Show, but apparently it wasn't allowed to compete as it was put on by the organising club, big shame.

The Miles M52 at the end was MAGNIFICENT! It was 'machined from the solid' from a piece of tubing from a Puma helicopter, no less!

Some real crackers! I really like that A-10 firebomber on the 1/144th stand too!!

They are just physical manifestations of collisions between enigma & conundrum particles.

Any aircraft can be improved by giving it a SHARKMOUTH!

Love the M.52 - brilliant work on the different shades of metal.

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

Just seen the pics on ARC http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=229214

Who did the Bristol Peregrine?! It looks fantastic. The Sea Javelin is pretty good too.

I spy Martin and Kit in the pics there too.... :lol:

Can't make that link work Nick, any ideas?
