    This is the beginning of a possibly HUGE endeavor on the part of our members to establish a viable learning tool for those less intune with the fine aircraft of World War 2....

    What we'll attempt here for a very early beginning is to post pictures of ur models in comparison shots, from some general angles....

    Lets see what we can come up with....

    These pics are looking very nice and give a good view for comparing.

    Cool shots Dan 8) (Love that 109!) We'll have to 'ban' certain kits though, remember my 1/48 Fujimi 190? It was smaller than the 1/48 Revell 109!

    Good start Dan. This is the trials for the virtual 'museum' idea right?
    I'll get some shots together over the weekend, showing a mix of types from WW2, and a couple of their successors. That is, if the weather's ok, as I'll need to shoot outdoors to have the space required.

    Got some shots comparing a Corsair and a Zeke at the weekend, haven't uploaded them to my laptop yet so I don't know how good they'll be. Also took a couple of shots of the Zeke and a Mitsubishi T-2 (WW2 v's Modern). Will post them later.

    Same here Terry, it was starting to rain when I was taking these pics, doesn't matter as they're crap anyway! I need a photo booth set up and a decent camera. Here's the best of a bad bunch.

    Actually, knowing the aircraft's physical specs can allow the image to be adjusted to true scale, even if the model manufacturer's sizes are a bit "off" :lol:
