Here’s a pic of part of the kit scale entry

I have been intrigued by the roundels on your Scout. Is there any story, or was it just a case that they had run out of blue? Good luck with it.

That's a good looking Kit Scale table, Pete!

Look forward to further reports.  Smiley

Early RNAS Scout before markings became more standardised. Also the Union Flag was dropped because of confusion with the German cross.

Thanks. It is easy to forget how new aviation was at that time.

Yes, Scout markings just as Jon says. I rather like the red and white roundels myself.

Getting towards the end of the first day now, and it’s been a ball. Looking forward to the evening banquet shortly. Still all to play for but it’s going to be tight at the top this year I think, with some lovely flights from the usual suspects. Will anyone beat the mighty Martin Huc I wonder? (First pic shows 3 of his models.)
Meanwhile back here in the mortal world, my Consolidated PT-3 hasn’t quite qualified yet, but is behaving itself and has had air beneath its wings, so two more chances tomorrow. Ditto Tim’s DWC, which is showing real promise.

Other pic is of a tiny Waterman Gosling racer built by the guy on the table next to min. He’s called Christophe* and yes, those are hand made spoked wheels (with 50p coin for scale). Flies too!  Shocked

*I’ll make sure I get the chap’s name right before I post it. He’s French and super talented as you can see.

Great pics Pete, thanks for those. Good to see Martin's Bleriot it seemed to get missed out in all the photos last year . It looks every bit a late model Bleriot.

Good luck to both of you to get some qualifying flights in tomorrow, great to hear its going well

I suspect some camera trickery with the Gosling surely  Undecided Huh ........ where do you get such large 50p pieces

... Probably both !  Wink.   Maybe it has been censored for containing models for kit scale that occupy too much table space ?

Just saw another pic of the Waterman on a Facebook group page.  Sitting on the scale @ 1.835 gm!

That Waterman is mad!  Pray tell us how Mike's beast is getting on... and the Scout?

Martin Huc?  So I assume the Poles and Czecks are back in their serried ranks to intimidate us mere mortals...!  Shocked

Scout’s doing alright- fair to middling flights. Take offs are a bit unconvincing. Mike’s big silver one has flown lovely slow circuits, as has Richard C’s similarly sized red and yellow one. They’re so slow and nicely trimmed, and the hall’s so big, that they’re not even using the whole space or looking too incongruous.
Not sure where the kit scale table photo went either, but here it is again with some other judging table shots too. Also, another pic of the gorgeous Huc Bleriot...

Both our American biplanes were still in one piece at the end!
With much sound trimming advice from the in-house experts I got two qualifying flights with the PT-3 today (Yipee!)
And Tim’s DWC flew too- not quite for long enough yet, but going steadily in the right direction. One to watch at the Nats!

The Frenchman with the minute Gosling racer shown in a previous post is called Christophe Cramoisan. Here’s his similarly sized Huntington H12. Also with home made spokies!
( Shocked encore!)

Yay!  That's one of the things I love about this pursuit - the generosity of fellow players!

Absolutely, Jon. In my case I owe much to Richard C and Lars T in particular on this occasion. I’ll just keep adding photos and info in a rather haphazard way if that’s okay. I’m not sure I can remember all the placings but am sure they’ll be up soon.
Here is George’s stunning DH9. It was flying beautifully and placed 2nd in Electric. (The class was won by our own Derek Knight whose Tiger Moth was also flying superbly. It must have been very close at the top though, with Tonda Alery’s exquisite Spitfire 3rd.)

Other photos here are all, I think, the wonderful work of Vincent Merlijn. I don’t think he flew the seaplanes but the others were a joy to watch in action. The Kawasaki fighter was flying in both F4D and KS. Camo on it is done with torn tissue I believe.  The Fairchild 24 (gotta love ‘em!) is a peanut from the Gene Dubois plan. The HLG rounds (F1N) are very nice to watch for us tensed up Scale bods- they keep our stress levels down! (Vincent, ever versatile, tow launched a scale glider too at one point, and was rather regretting the loss of that short lived class.)

It was exactly Lars who I had in mind!

Very eager to eventually see photos, videos and results!

Good to hear everyone had fun and is home safe.

Next year Roel and I will do it all again. So now you can direct all your question to either of us instead of one person. I will open a new thread for the 2020 edition.

Good to hear!

Yes, home and safe as well.

A great event, as usual. As was already pointed out during the award ceremony, and that was my impression too, the overall flying quality was much higher this time, which makes me very interested to see the results in detail.

Many nice models. many even nicer aeromodellers, a great weekend once again.

Only problem? I managed to forget my backpack at a a highway gas station, where we stopped for a pause. It has been found so I have to go get it, a good 2 hours away...

And in the backpack is my camera, with photographs and videos  Embarrassed

First time this happens to me, but there is a first for everything...

Well, even my Avro flew for the first time (sort of...)
And a second place in electric behind Derek Knight is not bad either... As for third. I think it was Martin Huk and not Tonda Alfery as previously mentioned.

Time to think of new projects for next year... Tired of going with the same every time.
