    I was looking a Shoki's Kikka pics and thought with todays simple photo-editors you could retro the pics and make them look loke war photos. I played with a few pics and came up with a couple from the Claude I built, Mike if you'd like to see your kikka pic let me know, I did a couple of yours that I thought would look great, esp with the pilot figure.

    I know the backround needs work, this was just a fun shot as was the other...

    Nice touch. That would really look great in a diorama with palm trees!
    The vintage look really brings the images to life!
    I would love to some pics like this from Mike build!

    They turned out so much better, but I'm waiting for permission first!

    Hi, I recieved Mike Krol's(Shoki) permission to post pics of his Kikka jet with a bit of antiqueing applied, I think they came out pretty cool, esp with the backrounds...

    Last shot, the end of the runway. I'm not into photography, but I saw Mike's pics of his build and remembered the Adobe photoshop package that came with an old scanner makes antique pics and thought what a perfect subject to try. In most of Mike's shots of his build the jet looked so real, a tribute to his building ability.

    If some simple toying with Photoshop can do something like this then I will never believe any "original" photo I find :wink:

    Looks pretty cool. I must come up with a better way to take those photos , or at least pick a day when there is no wind - my Kikka wante to really take off with a slightest breeze. (tarmac too, but that's another story :grin: )

    Russell - funny you mentioned the palm trees... I just finished looking at Build-a-rama website entertaining an idea about building a small Pacific island diorama....
