I used to model aircraft when I was very young, my dad would hang my planes from the ceiling and put round clear plastic discs to act as a spinning prop. I dropped out of modelling for a long time then got back into it by way of an accident I had at work. I recieved burns on my arm, face and back. I...

I love the black and white images. While B&W images don't show the color differences (color and not shades) well, they seem to have a way of bringing out detail that color doesn't do. They also give a more realistic feel to warbirds, given that the vast majority of the pictures taken were in B&W. If you wanted, you could probably play with the images a little, to make them seem older.

I THINK THIS IS A VERY GOOD DIO, VERY ORIGINAL TOO! THE PLANES ARE GREAT AND THE FIGS TOO! CONGRATS!!!

Hi there The varied range of aircraft is typical of what advancing Allied troops found on German airfields - Oh!! If only someone had thought to preserve the aircraft rather than send in the bull-dozers... Awesome stuff Michael! Are we going to tempt you into Project X? There could be some awesome dio-potential there! How about a Baachem Natter? All the best Rowan

Thanks Merlin, what is Project X? What is a Baachem Natter? I wonder what the cost would have been back then to ship examples of WW2 German aircrft back for museums and testing, Wingman out.

I have a tool to antique the pic but something from Photo-Shop would be much better, Wingman out.

Hi wingman.... great idea....and excellent work. Your skills would be a great boon to the Project X build. Basically it is for any experimental design, paper through to prototypes whether of vehicles of the air, land or sea. Merlin referred to the Bachem Natter. A vertical take-off rocket powered killer aircraft, similar role to the Me 163. The Allies stumbled on a number of secret projects that were nabbed and carried off to the respective homelands. The Americans for example sent to the States the prototype Me P1101, which was developed and into the Bell X5. The MiG 15 was considered as the off-spring of the captured Fw Ta183 design. There are many more. Hope you join the PX build...starting September 2004. Thanks and cheers Peter :-)

Wow! Many planes mean a lot of space! :-)

My shelves are full, time to look for some more space, Wingman out.
