Hi Nelson

WOW...your C-130 looks and flies great. Sounded like you had a windy day for your first flight, it certainly helped with your 0mph landing..LOL
Love the way the water comes out the back, just like the real thing. Well done a great build and a successful maiden.

Regards
Andy

Hi Adriana,

I like your picture slideshows. Finally someone is seeing what I see. I tend to run around with a camera as well when I go somewhere... Anywhere.

Hi Nelson,

I would really like to see the mechanism behind the water release.... It´s a very surprising feature for a plane. Especially when it is in such a "small" plane. Will you tell us your secret?

Hello Robert, long time no talk

Thank you for your kind words. I know only "the chosen few" see the world around in all its fascinating sides. (Nelson always tease me, but he helps me a lot being the "eyes-in-the-back-of-my-neck", and pulls my sleeve to show me something nice to click).
What camera do you use for your photos? I use a Nikon D-80. In my website I have few of them in a gallery, please visit my page: www.truewinds.com/photo.html
It has some slideshows I posted too. It will be an honor if you stop by and tell me what you think.

Take care,

Adriana

Hi Adriana,

I use the Canon EOS 400D. I'm already looking towards the Canon EOS 550D because that one has the HD filming option and it is a good camera for the money you pay for it. I have a nice tele - zoom lens which can be used from the hand in addition to the standard lens. I really want a small fish eye lens but I kept myself from buying one so far.

I already saw the movies about the dogs (I know those moments as well because we always had a dog at home. My dad still has the last one but the dog is very old, blind and deaf) and NY. In the video I saw a remark so I just looked for it and played it. I like them.

Your pictures on your site I'll look at those tomorrow because it is already very late and I need to go to sleep for work. What I have seen going over them quickly, I think they are probably better as mine. Better color, better composition. I'll take a better look tomorrow.

Most pictures of the builds are made with a Sony mobile phone. The size of those pictures is smaller and ,more easy to upload.

Ciao bella!

Robert

Ciao Robert,

My favorite lens is my wide angle (20mm) is not fisheye yet for photography concepts, but, gee! it makes every photo just perfect. Wide angles are much clearer lenses. The light is perfect, and the effects are amazing. I have it since 1996, luckily I can use it in my newer Nikon. I don't remember how much I paid then, but I know for sure that it worths every penny. Whenever you decide to get one for you I'm sure you will love it.

Of course, when I go to air shows wide angle is almost useless. A good zoom and a quick memory stick are mandatory in those events. Oh! and a happy "trigger finger", too

See you

Adriana
