B+V138 taking off

Recommended Posts

Another seabird leaving the surcface. This time I've been toying around a little in Photoshop with my Blohm+Voss 138C model.

I got inspired by a photo I recently saw, and wanted my image to look as an old photo from that time. These 3 engined flying sabots were a pretty

common sight up here during WW2 together with the He-115's, but this one here is from more southern waters.. I imagined France somehow, or perhaps Germany

Another excellent job Nils - I seriously couldn't have said that's not a real period photo!! Who says the camera never lies?! :winkgrin:

 

Great stuff!!

Thanks for kind words Keith.

There is not many public photos of today that haven’t been tampered with, in one way or another. Even winners of professional photo competitions has been discovered for cheating.

That's a beauty! I expect soon I'll come across this picture posted somewhere as a real wartime photo.

As proposed, here's wires (screen shot from Modo) and the original colour version (which I didn't like), and a closeup of the background..
