Very nice, Jim.
I used to love watching the Shackletons flying westwards over the Isle of Harris as a boy.
Beautiful to look at, and lovely sounding engines.

regards, Donald

Used to watch Shackletons flying on and off the very short runway in Gibraltar.
Love your Nimrod. Nicely done.

Harris Donald speaks for me, as always. Loved the big powerful Shacks. Fine pic - brilliant perspective, Jim, and sense of texture and colour. Tiree Donald.

Very nice Jim. Funny how we all like things that were around in "our" time. Although I saw both of these fine craft in service, I prefer the Shack, I think they had more character. Probably get a different slant from those that had to fly them :-)

Thank you all for your comments,I really enjoyed this one, in fact I only stopped 'cause "Your tea's ready" came from the kitchen. I was thinking of going back and putting some more scrap lying around, maybe not.
