How To Upload A Replica?

Fri Sep 07, 2007 7:45 am

Hi Guys,

I have a picture of a SE-5a Scout replica in Chilean Air Force markings, taken at the local Air Museum, but I have no clue how to upload it, that is what categories to choose? Any help appreciated!

Hi Andres,

If it has never been airworthy, it's called a mock-up on A.net I've been told. I'd do it like this:
Generic: Royal Aircraft Factory SE-5
Version: Royal Aircraft Factory SE-5a (mock-up)
Chile - Air Force
no c/n
PROP, MILITARY PRESERVED

Much like this one

Hi Peter,

Many thanks, much appreciated  bigthumbsup  ! Already uploaded, so in a couple of days we'll see  crossfingers  .
Btw, I looked up in Thierry's upload guide but found nothing regarding replicas (or mock-ups), so maybe it would be a good idea to include it.

Actually, I wonder why mock-ups/replicas are accepted (and that is not an attack on any of the great pictures in the DB but on the fact that mock-ups are not really airworthy and have never been). I say this because simulators are for example not accepted but do basically the same for the viewer. They show an aircraft without actually being a real aircraft.
