Cool pics, thanks for sharing, but what the heck is pic 22? Looks a bit like a MiG-3, but with a longer nose. Prototype? Production? Thanks. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Excellent stuff! Nice Spitfire...model and real one. hehe

Wow, when did I start looking at plane pictures like I used to look at Muscle Cars?!?

Damn you Oleg. lol

Krak√¬≥w, eh? Isn't that where Ivan Putski the former WWF wrestler is from? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Cajun, that is an Me209. If you've watched the Hitler... I mean History Channel, they often say the Me109 set the world speed record in 1932. This is just a bunch of Goebbels-ified BS. The plane that set the speed record was the plane seen here, the Me209. Hitler was so impressed by it, he insisted on having it referred to as an Me109 for propaganda purposes. :P


LoL, Slick, I wouldn't know, I don't really follow wrestling. Ivan isn't a very Polish name, AFAIK :P.

Ahhh, I see....

I knew about the 209 being passed off as a 109R, but I don't recall ever seeing the actual bird before. Thanks agaian. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Great pictures LStarosta! The ME 209 is a very rare Bird. I was surprized it survives today. Love the P-11 Photos.
Thank's for Sharing.

Added a few pics... I'll add more stuff from time to time, seeing as it takes forever to upload these behemoths.

Nice pic, Rola! I got scolded for probing the Spitfire's 20mm cannon barrel, let alone climbing inside a P.11 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif!

"Survives" is a very subjective word, isn't it? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

There was a candy wrapper inside it, maybe they thought you stuffed it there? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
