I wonder whether other members have had their photos used other than in the usual publications.
A photo of mine of the Concorde 01 prototype at Duxford, has just been used on the packaging of a Herpa Wingsclub 1/500 model, namely
Why not? Personally I would get quite a kick to see my photo on the packaging of a model, that would feel good. But then I guess for some of us aviation photography is a hobby, not a means of making money.

No disrespect, Florian but perhaps you do not understand the word 'chuffed' which is a relatively old English word meaning 'very pleased'.
As is sometimes the case, with Herpa you take it or leave it. I took it!
No disrespect to those who take photographs for financial reasons. I do it for pleasure, inward satisfaction, and the occasional high!
Nearly 1500 photos on Airliners is one of those highs.
My interest lies in the future as I am going to spend the rest of my life there!
