What splendid big-boy's toys.

And...an excellent shot of the game, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I had not realised how big some of them were going to be

extremely large for models
Bill Phillips: There is another group which are even bigger apparently!
that might be about the biggest model that one can build in their home, Brian! i am curious about the white insignia on the side.
Bill Phillips: It seems to be a thistle but the tailplane suggests the plane is from the Belgian Air Force
On dirait presque un jouet avec ces belles couleurs.
Bill Phillips: It is a very big toy but also a very accurate model
Very impressive Bill, these cant be far off full size!
Bill Phillips: I think they are about 1/4 size but I may be totally wrong!
They're really amazing things! Great pic!
Bill Phillips: They are even more impressive flying

Blimey this must be half the size of the real thing!
Bill Phillips: I think about 1/4 size but I may be wrong. Certainly not something you could hang from the bedroom ceiling!
Man alive! You can say that again, Bill!
Bill Phillips: They were most impressive Ginnie

They must have quite the work space to make this and then the transportation. I doubt that he has an airstrip as well in his yard.
FUN to watch I assume.
Bill Phillips: They were great

Blimey! I was starting to get some clues yesterday that they were bigger than I originally thought but I did not realise that they were this size. They don't seem to be much smaller than the original.
Bill Phillips: I think I am right in saying there are 3 main groups. Believe it on not this is group 2 and there is a lager group than these. The sort of model aircraft most of us think of are group 3. Mind you even those aren't a bad size and feature in some of my earlier snaps

The drones are larger than I expected.
Bill Phillips: I suspect if you called this a drone within earshot of an enthusiast you would be lynched

They might have used a better model for the pilot smile They are bigger than I expected them to be. Probably pricey as well. But, heck they must be nice to play with!
Bill Phillips: He does look a bit undernourished. Many of the models were smaller. As I understood there were two of the 3 main classes at this display and this was the larger one. I think there is one class that are larger still
This is a fantastic model, did it actually fly or is it just a display item?
Bill Phillips: I don't think I saw this one fly but others of this size did
This is funny and excellent.
Bill Phillips: There is something slightly eccentric about it
Wouldn't our friend, Richard Standley, love seeing these.
Bill Phillips: Yes he would. Sadly missed, he was a lovely man
i'm glad that you showed us this picture in scale Bill... i had imagined them to be much smaller... what a wonderful biplane....petersmile
Bill Phillips: A lot of them were and there area believe some that are bigger than this.
Oh, I am surprised..........I assumed the much smaller model aircraft! Great photo, Bill smile
Bill Phillips: Most of them are but quite a few are like this and apparently there is a group even bigger
