Middle Wallop Easter 2015
Sunday, 24 May 2015 | Hadi
Embarassingly late, here are a few images from the free flight meet at Middle Wallop over Easter weekend.
It was great to meet lots of dyed-in-the-wool aeromodellers and to see so many spectacular flights (and crashes)!
We'll start off with a moody shot of Middle Wallop itself which I like to call "The Long Walk":
There was an amazing array of models including this biplane that I foolishly forgot to make a note of the name. I think it was a German model from around 1941 but perhaps someone can enlighten me further!
Next up are a couple of shots of the Veron Cardinal - a bit of a Marmite model this one but I think it has a certain charm about it!
A well used KeilKraft Cadet coming into land at a steep angle but no serious damage done!
This Keil Kraft Competitor flew absolutely beautifully and looked truly stunning.
The proud owner and builder (I'm sorry I didn't catch your name).
A mylar covered KK Dolphin was very striking in flight.
We've had lot's of great feedback about our KK Eaglet kit - this model was an original I believe, but shows what a beauty the Eaglet can be when built right.
Our friend Pete Sanders was in attendance with a number of models, but by far my favourite, was his absolutely beautiful Junior 60. Here it is in his garden shortly after completion.
And here it is buzzing the control tower at Middle Wallop!
Next is a KK Senator with lovely lightweight covering, showing the multi-strand rubber set up necessary for decent duration flights with these old birds.
He also brought along this super KK Southerner Mite.
I hope you've enjoyed the pictures and if you've got anything to add or would like credit for any of the builds, please comment below.
