I also just finished and new regular side profile, another P-51D. This time the Planes of Fame P-51D Wee Willy II. I also have this same aircraft in a caricature version. If you looking for a regular side profile Mustang just send me an email and we can work it up for you. If you want to see more regular side profiles let me know what you would like to see me do next. Check out the fighter propeller section to see the new art.
Just finished up a new caricature. This time a local resident at Cable Airport (KCCB). The C53D/DC-3A operated by Aviator Flight Training. This aircraft was built as C-53D serial number 42-68738. She saw action in Sicily and France. In 1945 after returning to US where she was converted to DC-3A standards and flew with TWA as #303 NC86558. In 1949 she was operated by Northeast Airlines and in 1951 flew with United Airlines. From 52 on till early 2000’s she was then flown by numerous owners until 2013 when Aviator Flight Training bought her and fly her out of Cable Airport.
I want to add a nice background with Cable tower in the backgrounds and a version with the history added. Look for those soon.
Well I hope you all had a great holiday, New Year and Superbowl. I must apologize of my lack of posts and production. The “day job” tends to kick my butt from time to time. That is no excuse just a fact. Fear not I am still working on new stuff and trying to finish up some custom work. (A-7, C-17 F/A-18 etc) I just finished two prints of the same aircraft for a customer who at first wanted the caricature of his warbird, then his wife told him he needed the regular profile to go with it. So we created a completely new art work that was regular proportions. I have to say it was a bit of a struggle as I have been doing the caricatures for so long, the new piece just looked strange. All long and thin. Anyway I think it turned out pretty good. Both art works are of the P-51D Shangrila that was flown by Dominic S. Gentile after he finished his tour with the 4th Fighter Group in England. When he returned to the states he was given a brand new P-51D so he could tour the states on a bond tour. The markings are for the 4th FG and used the same code as his P-51B Shangri-la. We will be doing a few more of the regular profiles (next up Wee Willie from Planes of Fame) and if your interested we can do a custom Mustang for you as well. Just drop us a line.
I also worked up a couple of new F-4 Phantoms, both USMC birds. This time adding some backgrounds.
Okay that about wraps it up for right now. I have a few more plus some images for the first air show of the season, the 2016 Cable Air Show and car show. Dreary day with threatening rain clouds, but some fun stuff to be seen.
