Show your Model

I don' t know where it started, it might even have been with Jurgen Heilig who always found someone special to display his models, but there has been a tendency in the EZ-Star thread to find an attractive female to display your model for the fellow ezoners to see....
I think this nice new custom should no longer be limited to the ES, especially since some have many models and are afraid to be OT if they show them.....

We all know how hard it is to find recognition for our hobby with the other sex, or even get them interested in our art and craftmanship, so I'd like to put the challenge down to everyone:

Find an attractive female to show your model

After all, is there a better way to honor the many hours you spent building than to have your pride and joy displayed properly and photographed (before the inevitable happens, of course )?

Beware, though, the competition is fierce (well - what's new among modellers ?) - some israelis go as far as to MARRY a girl to have her display models.....
(I have to admit he has good taste in women, too)

Another one - who shall remain nameless for now - bullies his daughter to create special designer clothes for the sole purpose of outfitting the model holders she procures for her Dad (man, some daughters really love their familie, even if he's an foam-eating old pilot sloper )

So don't be shy, guys, we expect genereous contributions.

Privat note to the unnamed one:
PADDY : your minimum quota is one per week!


OK - so here's a start

Actually,


I don't think there is any competition here, as I think all girls who have the patience for us deserve to win

Not only we are in this hobby which takes some of our time, from them, but we also now ask them to pose for us, and take their time

I say, They all Win !!!

Since I can't leave you alone here, so here is my contribution. And I have to say big Thanks to my wife, indeed, for accpeting to spend few hours on taking pictures...

Sure they do, I couldn't agree more.
Any girl who puts up with a modeller is special!

When I spoke of competition, I was joking about us modellers.

Thalia's quite special - I think I can speak for our fellow ezoners when I express my appreciation.
plus, you are a better photographer than I am....

You've seen this before, TT, but here's my model at another angle

ALL the beautiful "Holders" so far have been holding EZ*s, and this is not supposed to be another EZ* thread. (Not that there is anything wrong with that). So I am trotting out an oldie,which many of you have seen before.



AEROBIRD XL.

Cheers. Paddy.

At least we're getting away from those fugly EasyStars. (No offense, but the feminine touch is the only thing saving those pics - great pics btw.)

Okay, it's just my opinion. I like all model planes. But my last choice would be something like an EasyStar or an Aerobird.

(Nice one Paddy!) (Not the airplane...)

There's a very easy remedy to that :
1) pick your favorite model
2) pick your favorite model
3) take picture
4) post here
