This aircraft (s/n 84-0813) was assigned to Colonel Alton Whitley, CO of the 37th Tactical Fighter Wing during the Gulf War , and was nicknamed “The Toxic Avenger”. It flew 35 missions during the war, albeit not all with Whitley at the controls. Click below to see a larger version of the illustration.
This Boeing 747-400 is registered F-HSEA and is part of the Corsair fleet. I actually made this profile nearly 4 years ago, and I haven’t made a single other 747 since. I’d love to represent Air Force One, although it is such a heavily modified aircraft that it will probably require quite a bit of extra […]

A Battle of France veteran and ace, he was shot down or forced to land 9 times by the end of the Battle of Britain but scored a total of 23 victories. He was awarded the Distinguished […]
Working on a commission, I’ve almost finished the template for the legendary Mitsubishi A6M2 Type 21. Once I’m done, I’ll have to move on to other projects so I don’t know when I’ll be able to present actual finished profiles rather than this somewhat sad all-grey template. 🙁 Paints used on Japanese aircraft during World […]
This PBY-5A Catalina of VP-44 was flown by Ensign Jack Reid and his crew when the spotted the Japanese invasion fleet some 700 nautical miles west of Midway on 3 June 1942. This profile was created for Historia magazine’s special issue on great historical battles.

As reported by AeroBuzz, the French air force has ordered 17 Pilatus PC-21 as replacements for the ageing Alpha Jet trainers, which are now in their fourth decade of service. The above profile represents HB-HZC, which is the third PC-21 prototype and demonstrator. Care to guess what the French PC-21 will look like? I’m certainly […]
The F-15 Eagle template is coming along nicely. I’m starting with the single-seater F-15A/C template, which I will then convert into the F-15B/D and then into the F-15E Strike Eagle. More coming soon !
Well, I’ve finished the templates for two T-6 Texan variants: the AT-6D (actually the antenna post is missing) and the famous T-6G version. Profiles of these will be coming soon, but will probably have to wait after Christmas as I have a very large workload. I’ve started working on the B-17 Flying Fortress template, and […]
