The judges give these planes their final scrutiny. Or perhaps some memory of flying draws them into the past.

The best of the hobby group's work was on show at the ACT Scale Modellers' Society annual event.

NIKON D5000 1/100 second F/5.6 ISO 1600 16 mm

Phil Morris from Saskatoon, Toronto, Canada

The guy on the right is peeking wonderfully, makes me think if they were making a movie,
they would have to look no further than the fantastic people you have been watching so
far. Really makes fascinating character studies. Superb photo.
