Hello everyone. Well its official, Blackheart Art will be a vendor at the upcoming Planes of Fame Air Show, May 15th and 16th, 2010, in Chino CA. This will be my first air show (as a vendor) and I hope that many of you can attend. I would love to meet fans of my art. I have put together a special print that will be sold exclusively at the show. It is a P-40F from the 325th FG, the Checker Tail Clan. The paint scheme is of a P-40F-15 s/n 41-19896 flown by 1st Lt. Walter B “Bud” Walker Jr. 1st Lt. Walker flew with the 317th FS out of Mateur, Tunisia in 1943. On 7-30-43 he shot down 3 Me109’s near Sardinia. For this exclusive print I have added some nose art, “City of Chino” and a civilian N-number N2010PF, to commemorate the Planes Of Fame 2010 Air Show. This P-40 is painted in similar colors as the Planes of Fame P-40 when it appeared in the film Valkyre. I added a faded background map of the 325th FG’s area of operations during that time period, for a different kind of look to the regular prints I have on the web site.
I have also just finished my second helicopter, an MD530F for the Las Vegas Metro Police Dept. Hopefully this will be the first of several MD-500’s.
Lastly I have finally added the second Ju-87 that I did last year. For some reason I never added it to the web site. I hope you enjoy.
Okay, one more last thing. I have just completed the drawing and inking of two WW I aircraft. A SPAD XIII and an Albatross DV (which I just might modify to a DIII as well) So look for those soon. And Yes I still have the tanks on the back burner. I will get to those.
