  1. Thank you Keith, glad you like it.. By depicting the prelude to the battle, I feel it’s more up to the wiever to decide what’s happening next..
  2. Prelude to Black Friday - 9th February 1945 Not showing the clash between allied and axis forces directly. My image is showing the first units of JG5 from Herdla entering the scene of Fördesfjord, western Norway, where the Black Friday clash took place on february 9th 1945 as RAF Dallachy Beaufighters is attacking the german destroyer Z33 and suporting vessels in the area. The Fw190A-8 Blue 4 was piloted by Rudi Linz, a 69 kills ace, whom also was killed that day. Shot down by an escorting 65 Sqn Mustang. 10 allied and 5 german planes were shot down. 18 allied and 2 german airmen
  3. Thank you Rabbit leader, that’s the greatness with this place, all the tips and help you get along the way.. and yes you’re right, it is s Mk1c. Your comment is much appreciated.
  4. Thank you for your kind words. I’m glad you liked it and shed your thoughts around it. My intentions was also as said above, never to ‘take a side’ of the battle. It’s just a story I’ve heard so much about and I’ve always found it a shocking story that’s been burning in the back of my head for years. On the other hand, that’s a danger with depicting war. There are always two sides to a battle, and it’s so easy to hurt one or the other side, unintentionally.
  5. that's really a nice piece of work.
  6. An image I did of the Calamity Jane (one of several with the same name, apparently) a B-17G that crash landed in Sweden, August 1944 due to flak damage on a raid against Peenemünde

    Beautiful work
  8. Thank you both, regarding the atmosphere, I’m not sure how well it shows but I tried to add some insects dots deeper in the background, to add some more life to the late afternoon scene..
  9. That’s looking just great, the first jumbo so to say..
  10. A pair of 5./LG2 Hs123's is dive bombing ground targets during the polish campaign
  11. Wow, thanks, that’s must have been tough times.
  12. Thanks guys, @ JohnT, I'm deeply honoured 303sqn, thanks for your enlightening upon studying my information V6665 coded RF-J, was shot down on the 27 September, Sgt Andruszkow was killed in the incident. I was mislead from the info given on this site: http://www.polishsquadronsremembered.com/303/303_story.html
  13. Here a picture I just finished today, a 303sqn Hurricane hitting a Me110 over Dover during the Battle of Britain.. 80 years ago now. The Hurrican was piloted by F/O Cebrzynski when it was lost 27 September, in a dogfight.. PS! My scene is pure fiction..
  14. That's some really nice and truly unique pictures, I like the a bit rough style of the pixelated pictures and the P-40 under engine maintenance must be my favorite.
  15. On top of a great modelling result, it’s also splendid photo work. Really nice photos, the dark environment suits the model!
  16. Thank you for helping. As I’m doing digital artworks, (mostly planes) from time to time, I do some maritime related stuff as well and see that smaller boafs and vessels would fit nicely into some of mh scenes. Of course I’m able to paint just «a boat» , but it would be so much nicer to have a selection of correct crafts, motor launches, sea plane tenders and so on, to make. I’ve always admired the design of older marine vessels in general and Royal Navy and RAF in particular. So, really simple scetches, b/w photos or whatever would be nice, as long as they’re right for the scene and t
  17. Hi Does anyone know if there's a place on the web that has images and/or drawings of Royal Navy motor launches, smaller vessels types and so on? Especially from the era before WW1 until 1960's... I've tried to find such a place, never really had any luck….
  18. Beautiful ship, and beautifully weathered
  19. Thanks for your explaination I fully understand the crawling around bit, hehe Sometimes I think «normal» people must believe modellers are some real lunatics
  20. That work truely shows your skills, great work man. I am really impressed! How do you set up your work? just out of your head or do you use some kind of pose? Platic model, photo or 3d model?
  21. Looking great, I can see the classic Phantom shape is already in place. A great alternative to travelling
  22. Thanks all, I’ve updated my image a little, well quite a bit in fact, in some areas. The sub has crash dived before veeing attacked, new explosions and reworked the sky/fog background
  23. A piece I finished today, showing a heavily weathered 330sqn Short Sunderland attacks a german type VII sub with depth charges.. All CGI
  24. Nice.. a little tip when working on perspectives, hold your drawing up in front of a mirror and if any errors, they reveals themselves instantly in the mirror
  25. I have updated this image, I wasn’t really happy with it so I adjusted the composition completely and removed the contrails to calm it down a little.. I think this is better..
