    The B-24's are rendered from my 3d model and then manipulated in photoshop, as well as the 8th AF logo.
    the cgi "pastel" portrait was derived from this original photo.

    For those who don't know, S-SGT. Rudolph Jandreau was Trebor's great uncle. He flew six missions on the Southern Comfort III (42-50896) GJ-Bar-R and at least one on the Joplin Jalopy (42-50535) GJ-Bar-O as part of the 40 missions over western Europe he flew under Lt. George Insley along with mostly the same crew.

    Moderator, I am tracking a SPAMMER at 12 O'Clock High (post just above mine)! You are cleared to fire any and all weapons!

    I don't suppose this is where "Southern Comfort" Whisky came from?

    heh, more tha likely the plane was named after the drink ;) I'd not mind having a sip of that drink tho.

    heh, I dunno, Les. it depends if I feel up to it or not. I may work on the aircraft carrier a lil bit more today, go bike riding, or work on the sig. XD
