    While at the North Weald meet i managed to get a few pics of the RB while the Spitfire was out. I had to be careful where i parked, so i just pulled up and took a quick few shots but i like them so i thought i'd share on here :smile:

    Its was an opportunity that was too good to miss. I had the decency to ask if I could take some pics which I think went a long way, so he didn't mind. He even thanked me for asking.

    Cheers Scott. I don't have a clue either really, its more a learning curve for me. I'm still practising:smile:

    Thanks bud. There's some cool stuff all over here, even if they are ugly. Can't beat the old skool heroes though.

    If RB`s keep being broken at the current rate, it won`t be long till Spitefire owners ask can I take a photo of my Spit next to your 182.

    Nice pics !

    Good camera the 3300 I think, I have it now as an upgrade to my old 3000, also the 35mm prime I saw you bought Is very good.

    Interesting Fact about that Spitfire is that it is one of only a very very very few Spitfires that has the original engine it left the production line with.
    They found the engine in a museum and it matched the serial number to the plane so they bought it and restored it back to airworthy status.

    Love this car....but everytime I see it, I debate if I want a sunstrip or not. Looks great here.

    Thank you buddy. Your car/pics are nice too!

    Its a great camera for the money and the 35mm is raved about and I can see why. It helps as you dont rely on a zoom for getting the right angle. It almost teaches you, of you know what I mean?

    That's a pretty cool fact. No shoulder jumping shots this time. Nice and flat :wink:
    Thank you.

    The sunstrip can be a 50/50 thing. I was on the fence for ages until I went with this colour. The good thing is, it's only a sticker so it's no biggy should you want to add/remove it.

    First rule of North Weald Brunch club is you are not an official member till the Clio has had a pic next to a Spitfire.
