For Sale: Hasegawa 1/72 Typhoon Models - Limited Edition

I've got two copies of each of the below kits for sale - I was given them by Hasegawa as partial payment for the use of my photos on the cover, but I doubt I'll ever get round to building them!

For Sale: Canon EF 400mm F/5.6 L USM

Hi all, I'm selling this much-loved lens after an unexpected opportunity to upgrade, as I need to recoup some of the expenditure! It's in full working order, no scratches to the optics (and very few to the body) and comes with lens caps, case and box (the latter is a little more battered). Consideri...

Ukrainian Su-27P Flanker at RIAT 2017

Just a few from me, of my absolute highlight from this year's Royal International Air Tattoo. That the weather seemed to break for around 30 seconds either side of the takeoff means this immediately gets added to that collection of "moments" that keeps me going back to RIAT. 1. https://farm5.staticf...

Re: The Skunk Year in 12!

Really interesting idea on the colour pop of ZH880 - works well to reduce the background saturation but not completely remove it :)

Re: Star Wars Canyon - 30-NOV-2016 - Epic Day of 84 Passes

I'm normally loath to use the word "stunning" to describe images, as it's used far to often.

That being said, these are stunning.

Image 12 is the standout for me - the distortion around the fuselage is just incredible. Thanks so much for sharing these!

Vulcan XH558 Air to Air - October 2015

Back in October last year I had the chance to join the Aviation PhotoCrew for one of the last air to air sorties with XH558. We flew out of Duxford, met the Vulcan after it's final airshow display at Shuttleworth and then dragged in back past Newmarket and Cambridge. Less talking, more pictures for ...

Re: Canon Zoom len

Hi Richard, This kind of topic does the rounds reasonably often as people try to weigh up the pros and cons of different lenses. Probably your best bet is to try what nescafe37 suggested and give it a google - there's definitely likely to already be a topic answering exactly what you need. I'm guess...

I've had a look and changed a few settings for you - hopefully it works now :)

(your account was set as "No PMs" - no clue why!)

Let me know if any problems.

2015 Retrospective

Wait, what? Where did that year go - I'm sure it was 2014 a minute ago! Quite a speedy year, with the majority of my holiday from work not spent chasing aircraft. I think it's been more quality than quantity for 2015, but as this thread does actually contain quite a few images maybe I'm wrong - let ...
