      Hi All,
      Yet another magnifiscent time lapse this time a new Dambusters painting....

      From his Facebook page:- With the 75th Anniversary of the Dambuster Raid exactly one month from now, I thought I'd do a 'live' work in progress on the painting that I'm preparing for the Anniversary. The plan is to produce a few short videos over the next couple of weeks as the painting progresses, hopefully towards completion! Here's the first 5 minute clip covering the first two weeks' work. Hope you like it. You can see my other Dambuster prints at



      Just one niggle are the Horizontal and vertical stabilisers (Starboard) not quite square or is that an optical illusion ?

      Geoff.

              Hi All,
              Just been on the https://www.facebook.com/SimonAtack Yet another stunning masterpiece (WIP)that really brings the painting to life, along with usual astounding attention to the smallest detail. You can see how this masterpiece progressed on his facebook page that includes video....


              Simon said of THE HARDEST DAY update. Plt Off Constantine Pegg’s Spitfire established. Well, it just remains for me to add panel details, scratches and bare metal dinks, oily dirt and cordite streaks, aerial and IFF wires...and then punch holes into those flaps and rear wing panels. This Spit sustained some nasty combat damage..Then Pegg wrote it off, crashing down a bomb crater on the landing role.

                Hi All,
                Just came across this artist Keith Burns ( https://en-gb.facebook.com/keithburnsart/ ) art print on Ebay, decided to post the original also from his Facebook page for comparison. Name of the piece ' Typhoon Warning '

                I advise you to check both the above Facebook page and here:- https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ke...=1534193244243 absolutely stunning images but this one here...

                I must say I prefer the original in the darker tones just looks more realistic but none the less absolutely stunning, on top of that he used to draw
                Johnny Red in the Warlord comic.....

                  Hi All,
                  Simon AtAck is at it again looks promising IMHO...
                  From Simons Faceache page:-https://www.facebook.com/SimonAtack
                  "BLOOD AND THUNDER". - The story of a Hawker Hurricane...

                  HAWKER HURRICANE PROJECT. The first layout in pen and ink on canvas of this new painting. I want to portray the Hawker Hurricane as she truly was, a
                  formidable fighter at war in the hands of an expert. And of all the Hurricane units who fought so magnificently in the Battle Of Britain, none were more
                  deadly effective than 303 Squadron. This Polish Squadron, based at RAF Northolt, London from 2nd August 1940 after formation at Blackpool, along with
                  another 15 Polish Squadrons fighting for Britain, were initially confined to training flights and kept from flying operational combat sorties as a mistaken
                  belief formed, that, as an unknown foreign quantity, there would be grave risk with allocating valuable aircraft to them and mixing formations in battle
                  with British pilots when hardly a man of them could speak English.

                  But these Poles were already excellent, battle-hardened pilots proven from their experiences fighting as part of 7th Polish Air Escadrille in their homeland's desperate air defence. As such, once Fighter Command relented under pressure of the course of the air fighting and ordered them fully operational, they
                  went into the fight against the Luftwaffe fearless and very hard, ruthlessly attacking every German fighter and bomber formation they could find, and
                  scored more kills against enemy aircraft than any other RAF fighter unit fighting in the Battle of Britain.

                  In one 42-day period alone, they accounted for 126 Luftwaffe aircraft shot down. They claimed an overall tally of over 200 Luftwaffe kills, but at a loss of
                  29 of their own fighter pilots. Facts so often overlooked in favour of homegrown British RAF Squadrons and aces. This particular Hurricane was a true
                  warrior of a fighter. No fewer than NINE aces with 303 Squadron flew her in action, including the top scoring 303 Sqn. ace Sgt. Joseph Frantisek
                  (17 victories) all of them scoring kills with her 8-gun battery.

                  Flown as the subject in this piece by 303 ace Sgt. Stanislaw Karubin who destroyed this Heinkel HE111 in a fast, low level combat over the south eastern
                  English countryside at Kent, one of seven victories he scored, four of them while flying this Hurricane during a period in the Battle of Britain. It is as much
                  a story about this one, particular aircraft and the incredible combat record of kills she accomplished, in the hands of her brilliant aces, as it is about
                  Sgt. Karubin's kill on this day.

                  303 Squadron was commanded by an English RAF Officer, Wing Commander Ronald Gustave Kellett. An ace from 249 Sqn. early in the Battle he lead them throughout the summer campaign. Of them he wrote:- "We fought together through the great offensive of 1940. And I knew then, that the pilots of 303 Squadron were not only the best, but would see me through any troubles. In the month of September, 303 were on top. No Squadron from the Empire could equal the courage and skill of our pilots. No bombing could daunt our airmen".

                  Of their magnificent air fighting record, Air Chief Marshal Sir Keith Park, AOC 11 Group said:- "Had it not been for the magnificent material
                  contributed by the Polish Squadrons and their unsurpassed gallentry, I would hesitate to say, the outcome of the Battle would have been the same."

                    Hi All,
                    Another couple of new originals from https://www.posart.com/originals

                    From Marks Faceache:-https://www.facebook.com/MarkPostlethwaiteGAvA
                    Two new small paintings just completed for forthcoming book covers. The first depicts a KG40 Ju88 shooting down a 304 Sqn Wellington over the Bay of
                    Biscay on 13 August 1943, (75 years ago tomorrow). This is for the cover of a forthcoming Osprey book on Ju88 Aces.

                    The second painting, 'Blenheims over Borkum' shows the first RAF fighter offensive operation of WWII when Blenheim MkIfs of 25 and 601 Squadrons attacked the seaplane base at Borkum on 28 November 1939. This is for the first in a new series of books 'Modeller's Photographic Archive' which will be published by Red Kite in September.

                    Both paintings are now available for sale on the website and remember we're still running the 10% discount offer until the end of August, just enter the code 19182018 at the checkout page for 10% off anything you order.

                                  Great job for keeping this post going Geoff! Some awesome paintings there, I especially enjoy Burns' vivid compositions.

                                  Here is some of my more recent work.

                                  Firstly an F4U-7 of 15.F Flotilla as it saw combat exactly 62 years ago during the Suez Crisis. This airplane was recently restored to represent a grey/white AU-1. This profile as well as a few others were commissioned by Warbird Digest for the 80th issue of their magazine.

                                  Secondly the cover art of Dan Sharp's latest bookazine on Luftwaffe secret project. This shows a Zeppeling twin pulse jet fighter dispatching a Soviet P-63 Kingcobra. This fighter was really just a napkin sketch, which was incidentally all graphic input I had to work with, which wasn't easy. Luckily though it was mentioned the wing was taken from a He 162, the tail planes came from an Me 109 and the engines were As 014s (like on the V1 buzz bomb). These details helped me puzzle together an illustration of this design.
