I must admit that the Polish MiG-29s are attractive:



This is sweet too...wish there was a suitably scaled kit available!

Yes they are. And this particular one is based just few kilometers from my home, so MiGs in flight are common sight for me.

What can I say?  Given what I work on, I love this pic.  Is it a MV-22B or a USAF CV-22B?  The bird I'm working on flew the other day, but I'm not yet allowed to show pics.  Interesting to see a V-22 with an "N-number", though.

USAF machine, Evan.  Way more protected (ECM, RWR, DIRCM, etc) than the Corps machines.  Easier to spot are the TFR pimple on nose and the RWR pods that stick way out on the vertical stabs (just above the wing in the pic below.)  Air Force birds are painted much darker too, but in some light, that's not an easy reference.

I suspected as much, just going by the color.  The gray of the Marines' birds is much, much lighter.  Other than the RWR pods, though, I don't see anything I haven't seen on a USMC bird.

That artwork is an amazing study in presenting depth and dimension on the 2D canvas. Through subtle shading, use of transparency and color range, it is not just photo graphic but photo-real. Especially note the dogfight contrails in the upper half and the cloud layers. While they are secondary to the action and the main subjects, they have had a lot of preparation invested in them.
