you did a great job with the close-ups of these Brian... you must have had to wait a long time to get them alone... i had people in all but one of my shots....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Yes I did have to hang around a bit Peter, worth the wait though.

I was impressed with the three statues at the entrance and you did a great job.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, they are very impressive statues.
Quite impressive Brian! Well done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
A good companion to yesterday's picture Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, unfortunately my picture of the third statue wasn't very good.

It is interesting to see the differences; the helmet and the fabrics particularly.
Brian Walbey: Yes once jet planes came along the pilots rig changed didn't it.
strange sculpture
Brian Walbey: As you can no doubt see it is a triple sculpture of pilots flying kit over the decades, one of the other two was yesterdays posting.

I really brings out the detail Brian.
Brian Walbey: I was pleased with how this one came out Mike.
Very good sculpture - and photo.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Mary.
Well taken, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Do you know what material was used for these sculptures, Brian?
Brian Walbey: I can't remember what they were made of Beverly, but certainly something solid, everybody entering the museum had to walk past them, and you know kids, they have to touch and poke so they were certainly very robust.

I suppose he intends to fly high, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I think once the jet aircraft came on the scene this sort of kit was essential.
Nice one Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ronky.
Very good Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
I like this Brian!! Nice shot!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.
another nice post. i am imagining his shiny visor on the helmet
Brian Walbey: Yes no doubt the real thing would be shiny although I believe they are made of some sort of darkened material to cut out glare from the Sun.
