Thanks Mark & Mat 🙂

I love the Spitfire and folklore about her...

BUT, you need the right people at the right time to use her correctly.

Many thanks Simon, Murad, WhiteGlint, Kim, Spanjaard and Neuling. Much appreciated guys 🙂👍

The pictures make it look a little more "blue" than what it really is. It's actually a lot more grey looking than the pics suggest.
Also, just noticed a bit of fluff and fibers here and there that got caught on some of the raised detailing from the cotton buds I was using to clean up the washes. I thought I had got it all, but obviously missed some. Grrrr!

Thanks WG 🙂

I was in a bit of a rush when I posted the video link.
I also meant to indicate that it contains images taken at the PIMA Air & Space Museum, as well as comings and goings from Tucson International airport (both located in Arizona)
We got quite lucky to get quite a bit of action from F-16's of the Arizona ANG... including a dead stick landing, and the Boeing 747 Jumbo that was testing the (at the time) new engines to be installed on the B-787 "Dreamliner" that I'd all but forgotten about.
The images (over several thousand) have been sitting on my HD since June of 2013 and covers mostly military aviation but quite a bit of civil aircraft as well for anyone interested.

BTW, sorry for the repetition of the looped background music as I didn't really have anything suitable to use that also avoided online copywrite issues, but is better than nothing etc.

Just dug up this beauty... Job well done, cool 2-color camo and reasonable weathering for the given subject. And well chosen light conditions for the pics, looks great in this type of natural light 👍
13 September 2021, 13:53
James C
Many thanks for looking in and commenting mate, very much appreciated 🙂

I didn't have much choice regarding the lighting as I finished it during a particularly wet and wild period that lasted several weeks.
I may reshoot it this summer along with a couple other aircraft when the weather improves a bit more.
In hindsight, I was probably a little over zealous with the paint chipping, and it could have done with some exhaust staining, but I'm pretty happy with the end result. It was also my first time using "Hataka" acrylics and I was very impressed by their depth of colour as well as ease of use through the airbrush.
