    Thanks - I kept the background simple (and light) to focus in on the dark paint job. The next one (VF-17 Corsairs) will be dark and moody, an early morning patrol ... hmm, there's a good title in there somewhere! :lol:

    Really nice painting. Ready to hang on a wall beside Stan Stokes and Robert Taylor.


    I also like it's well defined proportions and the angle of the plane, one of the things that nags me the most when I'm trying to draw something.

    I don't think I have ever seen a P-38 with two mouths before. It can look like a two headed flying Hydra.

    my favourite aviation artists are Barry Price and Keith Aspinall although i'd rate the latter slightly higher..........
