    Nice soft shading, but not really accurate (missing panel lines etc.).

    I still gotta draw a Corsair as well...

    Thanks lots for the link! I appreciate it.

    I believe that set of drawings was used for Chance Vought Calendars during WWII.
    My friend's dad was an engineer for Chance Vought and helped to design the F4U cockpit.
    He gave me a Chance Vought calendar from 1945 with some of those images on it.
    It was 40 years ago, but I still remember those images!
    Thanks again for the memories.

    muller, it is difficult to see the drawing, your avatar is blocking the view.

    Looks OK on my screen.
    As for the panel lines, at the distance portrayed, with the dark colour schemes, I don't think that many panel lines would actually be visible. Of course, they may be there, as in my paintings/drawings, when they will be visible upon closer inspection of the full-size image. Given the period the original was drawn though, the artist might not even have included any.

    Ah okay.

    I usually get a lot of criticism when I forget stuff, or draw stuff slighty different then in real life.

    The real aviation nutters know what they see, and they don't like it when it's wrong :rolleyes:

    Those hurricanes I posted earlier.. I drew the canopies wrong (slighty curved), they noticed immediatly.

    I know exactly what you mean my friend! One of the worst moments in my life was waiting for the comments of aircrew who had taken part in the Shell House raid, when they were viewing my painting, and the prints they were to sign, for the first time. I had fingers AND toes crossed, but was hugely relived when they thought it was fine! The only comment one pilot made was that the Mosquito looked a little on the clean side!
