    Hi All,
    Ronnie, Many thanks for the info always keep an eye on your Facebook you don't half post some cracking imagery......

    Mysticpuma,
    Wade Meyers been a fan of his for along time, I particularly like his Mission From Debden but I missed out on a print.......


    Have always liked Simon Atack and his artwork, can't wait for a proper detailed image of his latest masterpiece Skirmish Over Skegness here pictured with Tony Pickering at the unveiling(Below) What Simon said of the occasion :- "What an honour. Me and my newest work "SKIRMISH OVER SKEGNESS" with three very gallant gentlemen. Three Battle Of Britain veterans. L-R FG. OFF. KEN WILKINSON Spitfire., WG. CDR. TOM NEIL DSO DFC Hurricane ace. And SQN LDR TONY PICKERING DFC Spitfire.... A few, of a very rare few remaining men who were Battle of Britain fighter pilots. Such moments as this are precious."

      I'm working on some illustrations featuring local (Durham and Northumberland) RAF airmen.

      Here's Halifax II DT675 EQ-O of 408 Sqn:



      It was badly damaged by flak over Cologne, lost the starboard inner prop, and two other engines stopped for a short time. The Halifax was turned upside down, the fuselage, hydraulics, elevators and compasses damaged, and navigation charts were lost. The bomb aimer, Sgt. James William Taylor Mason Smith, of Bedlington, managed to navigate back using the bomb sight compass, and they landed at Manston. The pilot, S/Ldr Edward Gerard Gilmore RCAF, was awarded the DFC, and Smith was awarded the DFM.

      Both Smith's DFM and Gilmore's DFC were officially announced on April 6th 1943 - 24 hours after they had both had been lost in Halifax BB336 on a mission to Kiel.

      Regards

      Simon

          Thank you.

          No, it's not oils, it's all done on an iMac in Illustrator and Photoshop. The original Photoshop file is about 650mm x 450mm at 300dpi, so it's a 570-ish Mb file. I used to do them with airbrushed gouache on a sheet of CS10 artist's board, but I'm not sure my eyesight would be up to that these days! Plus I now get to click 'undo' if it goes a bit pear shaped...

                  I did this in Photoshop a while back. Show Clyde B. EAST'S 'Lil Margaret' RTB after a mission. I got two 18x12 prints done of it and met Clyde in California. He signed mine and I gave him the other. He was very happy with it

                        Hi All,
                        Found this short Animated film Paths Of Hate the animation is 1st class and well worth viewing IMHO. The second video is a break down of the short by the Director..

                        (Note to moderators this is in the LAST FILM WATCHED thread on general discussion page because I assume not everybody views both pages)

                          Thanks for your kind words, trumper. This is a great thread, with so much excellent work, well done to all.
                          Here's my painting of a Spitfire PR MkXIX PM655 of the Photo Reconnaissance Development Unit. I probably got more enjoyment from painting this, than any of my other works, I have always liked the Griffon Spitfires, probably because in my younger days it was the first mark of Spitfire I ever saw in the air.
