J'aime beaucoup les couleurs de ces avions.
Bill Phillips: They are rather splendid
an excellent angle, Bill. i can never identify old crafts but they make terrific photo opportunities.
Bill Phillips: I used to build plastic kits of them when I was kid and still recognise quite a few Ayush
Its one of them Bill, another good shot.
Bill Phillips: If I had to bet I would say the Camel

Or it might be something else.

Anyway it's a delightful looking old thing
Bill Phillips: It might but I reckon it is one of the two suggested
Just like a toy, Bill. How fun is that!

I looked at yesterdays too. I very contentedly can say that the pics you are posting of these models are beyond my original expectations. Sure, I know you took lots of photo's and they may not all be good for posting but still. And they look real.

There is not a red triplane behind it, so it is not a Sopwith smile You know, Sopwiths were issued with Red Barons chasing them.
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha

Pleased to have exceeded your expectations Louis
A very good series Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Michael
A fine composition Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Brian
They must be fun to fly.........great shot Bill! smile
Bill Phillips: and require great skill Martin

Bill Phillips: The sky was certainly on my side Sherri
