May 2018 - "Baby you can fly my car"

Recommended Posts

This month, inspired by a recent flight John Allard and I had in a 1928 Ford Tri-Motor, I would like to see shots of aircraft which were built by motor companies, that can include motorcycle manufacturers like Kawasaki.

 

Having just done some research there are a lot more than I thought, weather there is a model available from your favourite download library is another thing! 

 

Usual competition rules apply and the competition closes midnight BST 31st May 2018.

Good luck.

Old Cockney rhyming slang "Bristol Cities" now just shortened to "Bristols".

 

Back on topic pls. :to_clue:

For the Aluminum Body Van Fans:

 

A particularly nice restoration of a 1964 Grumman GMC Olsen Step Van:

The above concept of a Step In light weight low corrosion van body created with help of an Aluminum Savvy engineer from the Grumman Aircraft company...a couple of examples/entries shown below.

 

 

Grumman F3F-2:

And the Grumman Goose "Honk honk honk":

Cheers and good luck to all entrants.

Some really great entries this month and the addition of the related vehicles made it that much better :thumbup:

 

They are all winning shots but the most cheeky of all is IZ0JUB's Piaggio P180 Avanti entry, well done Mike!

WOW thanks Joe I wasn't expecting that! The very pretty young lady doesn't look typically Italian but a good set of pins anyway. Many thanks and best wishes to all the runners up too. Cheers Mike.
