Nostalgia...

One of my model planes with a 4 metres span and powered by a 100cc engine I had to get rid of in 2008 when moving from Paris area to Nantes.

Nostalgie...

Un de mes avions avec une envergure de 4 mètres et propulsé par un moteur de 100cc dont j'ai dû me séparer en 2008 quand j'ai quitté la région parisienne pour venir m'installer à Nantes.

Il était très beau, je comprends que tu le regrettes. Pourquoi ,e pas l'avoir amené à  Nantes ?
Richard Standley: Parce qu'il n'y a pas de club d'aéromodélisme avec une piste d'atterrissage suffisamment longue dans la région nantaise Martine.
Bonne soirée

What a beautiful model, Richard.
Richard Standley: It is indeed Ray. Thank you.
That is a wonderful shot. That is bigger than the models I have seen.
Richard Standley: That is a big one requiring a long runway Michael!
Awe- What a great looking plane... it must've been such fun! I'm sorry you had to get rid of it :-(
Richard Standley: I must say I am missing my big planes Elizabeth!
4 metres span??!! WOW. That would have been very hard to give up, Richard, for sure. I have a friend in Michigan who flies such model planes and he loves it! This one is a beauty!
Richard Standley: I am missing my big planes Ginnie! Thank you.

Oh, what a treasure and what a beauty - it's a pity that you get rid of it, but we have this wonderful photo of it!
Richard Standley: I am missing my big planes Philine!
Merci.
Bonne soirée

Bonjour,
"j'ai dû me séparer" dommage Richard il à  fière allure.
Belle photo!
Richard Standley: Mes gros avions me manquent Roland!
Bonne soirée
Do you build them too, Richard?
Richard Standley: Yes I do, and this one kept me busy for about 1.000 hours Mary!
A wonderful model, Richard, a shame you had to give it up.
Richard Standley: A shame indeed Frank. Thank you.
A beauty, Richard.
Richard Standley: It surely is Graeme! Thank you.
Richard, this is a seriously great shot.
Richard Standley: Many thanks Ayush.
What a great shame it couldn't go with you, it must have taken a long time to build.
Richard Standley: It kept me busy for about 1.000 hours Brian!
What an incredible machine, I bet you were sad to get rid of it.
Richard Standley: Very sad indeed Martin. Thank you.
magnifique cet avion!! amitiés
Richard Standley: Il est superbe Jean Pierre.
Bonne soirée.
Amitiés
That is some model Richard!!
Richard Standley: It is indeed Bill!
What a shame - you could have been flying it still!
Richard Standley: Unfortunately not Tom as there is no long enough runway in the area!
It's sad you had to part with this handsome aeroplane model.
Richard Standley: Sad indeed LC. Thank you.

Oh that will have been very hard to get rid of it. I do hope it found a new owner who treats her with respect. What a great picture and memory.
Richard Standley: I know very well the new owner and he is still flying with this beauty Astrid! Thank you.
Je l'avais manqué et il est magnifique. Cela a dû être un déchirement pour toi de te séparer de ce petit bijou
Richard Standley: Oh oui, et quel déchirement Marie car j'ai dû me séparer de tous mes "petits gros" de plus de 2,50 mètres d'envergure, n'ayant pas trouvé de piste suffisamment longue dans la région nantaise pour les faire voler!
Bonne journée
