Here is my newest effort, this was completed in 4 days thanks to being sick off work with a chest infection!

As a background the USAF decided to look for a new LIFT trainer to replace the T-37 in the early 80s this lead to the adoption of the BAe Hawk as the T-45A with the Naval variant becoming the T-45B. Here she is in ATC colours:



Here is the first time I tried this colour scheme in the infancy of my profiling days, here I used the Hawk 100 series as the LIFT plane. I dropped the red line on the one above as I used the T-37 blue and white colour scheme as my start point where previously I used the Texan II:

Instead of going the route of developing their own costly trainer the JASDF instead opened a global competition. The BAe Hawk won with Japan odering the Hawk 66.

1. Standard trainer scheme:



2. Commemorative F-2 scheme:

2. The awesome "Fanta can" scheme:



And lastly *gasp* a real world profile!!

Seeing as there was a dealine extension on the Coulda, Shoulds GB I decided to crack on with some SAAF Hawks before moving back to my other project (US-1 Kai or HS-2). So I decided to go old school with the first profile in the Impala Mk.II scheme, which isn't NMF but a Silver paint that ends up as a matt after long enough exposure to the African sun (there's one mounted at the aitport her in PE)



The next one I went for was, of course, a mount in the Silver Falcons. I love their new scheme with the big falcon's head on the front fuselage. Now what I've done is more of "an inspired by" than a direct copy of the scheme layout found on the PC-7.



for those of you who were around may recognise this scheme because I tackled it once before in my early profile days :)



This is it for the Hawks for now, until I get more info on the T-45A/C, or until some whimsy to do something colourful bites!!

Feel free to do your own take on the subject, Damian, but FAR's had the same idea on the What If forum and is pretty far along.  I just didn't want you to spend a few dozen hours working on it and then get discouraged that someone else had already gone down that same road.

Hehe it seems we both came up with the same solution for  the AWACs  platform.  My maritime patrol though is based off the Airbus proposal to India and in both cases feature different window arrangements. Besides how many artists do the P-51? It all comes down to one's interpretation of the subject.

Oh, exactly.  Again, I didn't want to discourage you from doing it.  Everyone has their own style and own take on a subject.  I just know that different profilers feel differently about such things.  That's why you'll never see me do the TSR.2, for example.  Plenty of very high quality artwork on that already out there.

Been stuck in something of a creative rut of late (as you may have noticed) and have been looking for something interesting. A few days ago I found it, the work of the very talented Pier Olin on deviant art http://pier-olin.deviantart.com/. After looking through everything I popped him a message to ask if I could profile some of his work and he agreed!

So here is the first, the McGrumman Skycat:

When the Dougalmann Skycat entered service it represented what was probably the best compromise of the time between nautical and aeronautical demands in ashipboard fighter. Aesthetically unappealing to some,  what the little warplane lacked in speed compared to its contemporary land based rivals it made up for in having a good climb rate, patrol range and the sturdyness for intensive carrier ops.







I hope you like the pugnacious little fighter :)

Hi all

Started my  new project. Line art is now done after 6.5 hours. Most of that pouring over the mock ups and deciding which actual aircraft would serve as stand in parts that the mock up didn't show.



The next step is deciding on colour schemes. A SEA is on the cards for sure, perhaps ANG and AFRES (think AFRES F-105s in all those awesome schemes) and perhaps some foreign operators.

Why yes :)



The F-1.M53 started life as an engine test bed but was then entered into the competition to find a replacement for the ageing F-104s found in European air forces. It was briefly re-branded as the F-1E but ended up losing to the F-16 in the "deal of the century".

BTW, here are a couple of photos of the real world F1-M53:




Note that it had the SNECMA M53 which is the same engine as the Mirage 2000 and thus some 30 - 35% greater thrust than the SNECMA Atar 9K-50 in most Mirage F1s.

Here are the two updated airframes.

The general mid life update which added a FLIR/Laser ranger/marked target seeker to the mix.



And a recon conversion for quick sneak and peeks



Now if I get a move on I may be able to get the recon bird done for the recce gb currently in progress :)

With the great walk around photos sent to me by Damien I have managed to correct the engine nozzles and intake cone for this bird. And thus we begin the epic adventure to see if I can complete a recon bird before the recon GB closes. Add to that I will only be able to really get down to it from Monday due to other commitments.

I am really looking forward to this, I have always been a fan of the F-1 and the E was pretty much the perfect whiff for just about any small to medium airforce from the late seventies.

Actually is there a conversion kit for the E, in any scale?

So...um...still busy.

I feel a bit free to chat in my thread about why I went dark.

2014 was a long year filled with sighs and since then I have been in a constant battle with depression. When I lost all my art and the resources and the info and, and, and it was a gut punch in a sea of gut punches. I have found it hard to find that spark again as it just seems like too much to go through all again. That is the personal level.

On the professional level my full time job has only increased in stress levels and in conjunction with that I co-founded a company doing "car things" which added more to my plate.

I have since been bitten by the sim racing bug and went on to make a sim rig and have done what-if skins for my buddy's team

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erpLsOoC-Zo&t=0s&list=LLJ33oTKmBFmQ2RmQ4BVPw3w&index=21
(their team launch vid and if I did it correctly there should be a preview pic below)

So some of the skills learnt here did not go to waste. Figuring all that placing out was an interesting experience first coming to grips with the Ferrari and then the Porka. I have recently built a pc to join in all this madness so my next project will be skins for my team, Torque Dirty Racing (also that's my company's name :D shameless plug)

Well what does all that mean for my aviation art? Like I said earlier, it is difficult because it is something I was doing when it all went wrong (my favourite game series Mass Effect also falls in to this "category") so when I sit down to think about doing it touches raw places.

However, I love aircraft and I am not making any promises but let's see what we can do in the next few months eh? 

As always, have a good one!

Prep yourselves for some automotive what-iffery in the next few hours. My friend and company co-founder have entered the second season of Simrace SA's GT racing series using the sim Assetto Corsa (brilliant btw).

We start on Monday with seeding races in the GT4 league  where we will be piloting the Maserati GT MC GT4. If you want to they stream the races on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7a2J_VcHmoeriRmpqJSkSw

So back to the car, this is "What-if Damian had enough money to do this for real!" I am doing custom skins for the car which looks like this:

Ok so yesterday ran into today.

This is what happens when you delete things you ought not to...turned in at 4am and resumed again at 10am (though annoyingly sleep only came at six ((also, did I tell you it was winter and it was as the locals say "poes" cold))). All of this plus another few hours (and I can spend many, many more save for the deadline of today) and I still managed to set a qualification time of 1:56:653 at Imola!

...Only 6 seconds slower than those sitting in the top 5. But I am division 2 talent level for now anyway and this the number of entries there will be plenty of scraps to be had.   

So in thinking about a livery design I wanted something striking as these races are live streamed. Call me an 80's child but I love black and neon when it comes to liveries because they are just so eye catching. My tea mate chose blue for his highlight colour and I went for a shade more masculine pink :)
