ChernayaAkula's profile thread - UPD: 15/05/2018: Restored pics!
« on: February 06, 2012, 10:05:10 AM »
Finally, my profile thread! I've got a folder full of stuff, but wanted to start with something fresh. I'm gonna dump the remainder of my profiles here over the next days.
Italian Eagles!

What if... the Italians never bought the F-104? Say, maybe they bought surplus F-100s in the 1960s and decided in the late 1970s that a replacement for the Huns was needed. Like the UK and Germany (), they went for the F-15. Go big or go bust!
First of, an operational F-15, equipped with an Orpheus recon pod:

I'm a sucker for special liveries and the Italians have painted their planes in some of the greatest schemes, so here are a couple schemes usually associated with F-104s. I think they look great on an Eagle, too!

A newer one, not carried on an F-104. This one was carried on an F-16. Diana, one of the most gorgeous girls ever to grace an aircraft!

F-15A-Italian-1-Ultima-Diana by Motschke, on Flickr

Since it wasn't carried by an F-104, I thought what if....

Diana is mostly the same, just a little more "leggy" (and who could find fault in that?).

This is just the first round of Aeronautica Militare Eagles. A couple more (including some Es - no, the Tornado didn't happen either  >:D) to follow soon......

Beautiful work!!  But then, I've got a fondness for Italian aircraft and the F-15 Eagle.

Hey Moritz, I don't want to veer off this thread (more Italian Eagles, please!!!), but do you happen to have a A-4 blank and do that last F-15/F-104 scheme on it?

Thanks, guys! Glad you like 'em!  :)
Drew up lots of weapons yesterday. Some obvious ones, some less obvious.... Stay tuned!

@Scooterman: I think I have a blank somewhere. May take a while to get round to it, though. Lotsa Eagles to do first. Italian Skyhawks would be rather neat, though. Not just air force ones (instead of G.91s and F-104s in fighter-bomber roles). Marina Militare?
Cheers,
Moritz

Can't get round to profiling new stuff, so here's a load of the older stuff (which many of you may have seen before).

This one started it all. Triggered by a comment over on ARC, where someone said it was about time for an A-10 in the colours of B-25 Mitchells. I thought that was a good idea.

The next one was for a One Week GB. Needless to say, the model never got finished. Do intend to get back to it one day.
My second profile, it was still rather crude. A "dirty" line-art of a Rafale B modded to a kinda-M (still don't like the canopy shape) and a copy-pasted Felix on the tail.

Next up (around a year later) is an Israeli F-111. Thought that given its long legs, it might be useful for strategic missions.

Since then, it's mostly been F-15 Eagle profiles for me.
Starting with a couple of SEA-camoed Eagles for use over Vietnam. Either the type was rushed into service or it was developed a little earlier.

F-15A-SEA-shark by Motschke, on Flickr

And a version without the shark mouth, which I actually like better in this case (I'm usually a sucker for shark mouth schemes).

F-15A-SEA by Motschke, on Flickr

Bigger teeth!

So much for now!

The Israeli F-111C is awesome. Perfect for taking out illegal nuclear facilities.
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
