    He Ian! Lets see if we can do this!!!

    Just click on the thumbnail and when it comes up click on it again to clear the black border around it. Then go up top of your window to pictures link on top of it's page and right click and copy it.

    Now press the little yellow "Insert Image" button with the little mountain on it and put you cursor onto the blue area and then paste the link for the photo right on top of the blue area and then click on OK! The picture should post to full size.

    Yours will have to be resized in order to not look like this.

    The picture downsize to about 1024 width would be much better!!

    I also copied the caption that went with the photo and pasted it here.

    Sal. Sorry, I'm a total dope. I've spent an hour trying to resize pictures and I remain totally confused.


    This will become my project for next year. Thanks for trying to explain what to do.

    Cheers

    Love the Varig old livery, it's one of my favourite too.

    here's some cool videos of the Viscount i found, love the sounds of the Darts! The only time ive heard them are on a F27. Would love to see one of these birds in real flesh.

    At the risk of deviating ever so slightly from the jist of the thread,
    I would just like to say how great it would be to have those Conway-
    powered Canuck twins replicated in 1/400 scale!

    Not commercial but certainly from the "Golden Age"!!

    I got me a decent scanner that can scan a good quantity of slides at one time and just not tried it out. Going to have to do a major cleaning of the slides again and will have to learn how to do it a bit better but here is one of the bunch that I did today. Hope to have the whole series posted in a few months.

    Taken on April 15 1972 by myself as we set up our monitors around the launching pad.
