Here is a link to the first Aircraft Portfolio published on this site. Betheyn (Andy Brazier) has the privilege to write Aeroscale history ( ) and I thank him for sending us pictures of his original models, all built in 2006!

Yes it is a first and, as such, we need the most feedback we can about this. Any suggestions and ideas are welcome!

If you have comments or questions please post them here.

Hi there

Absolutely stunning! That's a superb way to showcase a great set of models!

Andy - that's a really fine and varied set of buids! There's a lot to admire and learn from in there!

Jean-Luc - I knew you had something special planned for this new format... but I'm totally blown away!

All the best

Brilliant!
I love it.A great way to showcase both models and a particular modeller.
This is going to me a great series and Im looking forward to seeing more.
I think it would be nice to see a bit more general information about the modeller featured as well. This can only get better and better.
Congratulations Andy,you deserve this mate!, and a big thumbs up to whoever devised this!

Thanks Guys and Thank you Jean-Luc.
I knew you were planning something for this series, but this is brilliant, very professional looking (and I'm not talking about my models :-) ).
Thanks Jean-Luc you have made my weekend .

Hi Andy,

A fine collection there! But as we used to say in my DC-3 days, Jets are for kids! and Real airplanes have round engines! (the caption under a caricature of a Lockheed Connie)
