Happy New Year all!

Last year I completed the illustrations for Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces #114 on Ki-61 and Ki-100 Aces, written by Nicholas Millman of www.aviationofjapan.com. Since the book has meanwhile been published, I'd like to show you a few samples.

Research by Nick and myself.

They look superb. Did you do any whiffs and can they be viewed on any other site as I'm not on Facebook?
