Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

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:

Here's a teasrer of where I am going with this. Still have the tail, antenna and props to high light, shade and shape but it will do for now:



Oh yes changed the name of the manufacturer so that the model name makes more sense. It is now the Dougalmman F7F 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 :)

Dunno to be honest, I am going with one powered ground corporate executives (TORGO'S A MILLION AND ONE USES!) and possibly unicorn farts. So a V configuration with a blower then?

I have been meaning to complete my series of VF-1 profiles from the show and then do the DYRL. Of the series I still have to do Myria cause I got on with Kakazaki's VF-1 :)



So not realy a whiff as such, more pure japanese sci-fi goodness. BTW I grew up with Robotech not Macross so he was always Ben Dixon to me, he taught me an important lesson, FLY FASTER!

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.

I'd reckon that just about any scheme applied to a F-5 could be applied here; that leaves lots of room for a variety of schemes.
