More SMW Telford pics: Asian Air Arms

November 17, 2021 · in Aviation · · 14 · 1.9K

Andy Binks, a great photographer and contributor to the Asian Air Arms SIG website, snapped a bunch of photos from the show related to the subject and sent them to me to post to the AAA site. I asked if I could double post here, and he gave me permission. Enjoy! By the way, if the subject interests you aircraft modelers, the site is a great modeling resource:

There is an Easter Egg in the lineup - one of the photos doesn't actually belong to an Asian air arm...can you find it? And it's not the group photo - that also has a couple of non-Asian aircraft included.

  1. 65 is the ringer

    Nice work by all these folks.

  2. Some great looking aircraft in these shots, that Japanese 'Spruce Goose' (whatever it is...#33) completely dwarfs that H8K Emily!
    I was thinking that #45 has a '50%' chance of being the Easter Egg.

  3. Amazing pics, Greg!
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Beautiful pictures and dito builds, Greg @gkittinger

  5. To me it looks like #44 is the odd one, MiG-29 in Algerian markings.

  6. Some great pics and some serious good looking models here.
    I wonder if the Easter egg is that Brazilian P-47 amongst a whole bunch of Jap fighters on the last pic

  7. Humbling to see such great And perfect looking models.
    I would not know where to start after seeing this !

  8. Thanks for posting these photos Greg@gkittinger. I am in awe at the quality of these models. It's also quite humbling indeed as Bernard commented above.

    Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures with us. There is a lot of talent on display there. I would not want to be one of the judges, as they all look great !

    I was thinking the Easter egg was the B-24 and the Lancaster in #49. These are in the background of the Pakistani jet photo, and they are "egg planes" to boot. 😉

  10. Great looking builds!

  11. Nice pics, Greg. Thanks!

  12. Nice shots and builds, thanks!
