    I've just bought myself a negative and transparency scanner, at long last, and have started converting a few 35mm 'slides' to digital. I thought I'd post some of the perhaps more interesting ones here, and add a few at a time as we go.
    I'll start off with some of the rejected images from an Audio Visual presentation I made on the BBMF, back in the 1981 to '82 season, when I worked with the 'Flight's members, and got to fly with them too. Once I've scanned some of the better pics used in the show, I'll post some of them too.
    PIC 1. One of the Spitfire Mk.19s painted as a MkXIV.
    PIC 2. The Chipmunk 'camera ship', with me up front, during one of the air to air sorties. This shot was taken from the Lancaster.
    PIC 3. Hurricane MkIIc and Spitfire Mk19 in flight.
    PIC 4. Spitfire MkIIa running-up it's Merlin after a service. This aircraft saw service in the BoB. Note that four-bladed props were being used at that time, made by Hoffman, in Germany!
    PIC 5. The bomb-aimers position in the Lanc.
    PIC 6. The 'night shift', replacing one of the Galley radiators on the Lanc. It was flying next day.
    PIC 7. Cockpit of AB910, the Spit MkV.

    Thanks Glenn. I'll scan and post more pics of various aircraft, including more BBMF stuff, on a regular basis.

    It's not brilliant, but not bad overall. 5 Megapix and good range of resolution at various settings. And only £30 from Aldi !!

    Not bad, with such a small format on the slides I wondered what kind of resolution would result. Going to check around and see what they run here. Lot of my old photos are fading as they age (like me) but the slides seem to be holding up
