It is that time of the year. Reno National Championship Air Races. To celebrate we are running a sale on all Air Racer caricatures. This sale will run through September. Now is your chance to get your favorite racer. We lack a few but are working to catch up. We do accept commissions if you don’t see your favorite racer.
I can’t believe it has been since July that I have posted an updated. I have been busy working on a few commissions that are under wraps until they are presented to the intended. In the mean time I have had a chance to finally finish one of the air racers I have always wanted to do. The National champion from 1979, beating out the famous Red Baron who was just seconds away from a forced belly landing which destroyed the racer and badly injured the pilot, is the modified P-51 Mustang “Sumthin Else”. Owned and racer by Mr. John Crocker. I have long thought that this racer which was previously know as Miss Foxy Lady, raced by Ken Burnstien, had a very attractive and simple paint scheme. In the later years the paint scheme changes to a very dark blue and white, but this is how she looked in 1979. After Mr Crocker pass, the plane was sold and became a TF-51D owned by Stallion 51 and carries the name Crazy Horse II. Another modified racer that has been converted back to stock form. I have added two version, one with standard side profile and one with background. Check out the Air Racer section for this and more Air Racers.
I also have added my first Bristol Beaufighter to my ever growing Air Force, I have painted this in in the markings of 417th Fighter Squadron while based in Corsica. Hopefully I will do either a RAF or New Zealand AF version.
