Here are a few profiles of one of my favourite aircraft: the Vought F-8 Crusader, the “last of the gunfighters”. According to some pilot reports I’ve read, the F-8 was able to defeat an F/A-18 Hornet in close combat. Obviously, it would have been totally outclassed in BVR combat against the legacy Hornet, but over […]
It’s now beginning to look like an actual aircraft ! More coming soon !
Fixed Wing Marine Fighter (All Weather) Squadron VMF(AW)-235 deployed to Vietnam on February 1, 1966 flying the F-8E Crusader. Between February 2 and November 15, 1966 the “Death Angels” flew over 6,000 combat sorties in support of over 22 major operations. They returned to Vietnam on February 15, 1967 this time for over a year […]
I made the Aermacchi MB-326, or in this case the Atlas Impala Mk I, as a result of a custom commission. This aircraft is Impala Mk I No 503 of the South African air force, and was operated by the Flying Training School at Langebaanweg AFB in the 1970s.
I was recently commissioned a new template for a special occasion: the retirement of an airliner pilot. 🙂 This was something of a challenge as I had little time to do the new template and this first livery. This Boeing 737-3B3 is number 24387. In July 1990 it was part of the fleet of Aéromaritime […]
New Eagle profile. 🙂 This is F-15E-52-MC s/n 91-320 of the 48th Fighter Squadron “Panthers”, 48th Fighter Wing based in Lakenheath, UK.
These are the improved views of T-27 Tucano #312086 flown by the Brazilian air force’s “Smoke Squadron” – the Esquadrão de Demonstração Aérea team – in 2009. These views were created for MaxFlite, who made a prop glider with it. These make great colourful gifts for kids at an affordable price – something that might be […]
Sorry for not having posted any updates in nearly a month – I’ve been quite busy ! I’m currently working on a commission for the Aermacchi MB-326. This is still early in the template creation process, but some detailing has already been done, and I’m hoping to have the template ready in a day or […]
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight operates two Hawker Hurricanes Mk IIc: LF363 and PZ865. LF363 was built at the Hawker factory at Langley near Slough. It first flew in January 1944 and is believed to be the last Hurricane to enter service with the RAF. The aircraft served with No 63 Squadron at Turnhouse, […]
The Super Cub was the evolution of the famous Piper Cub and is still a highly successful and popular aircraft today. While the Cub was very cheap and simple, its performance was quite limited. The Super Cub took the concept to the next level, offering more power, speed and payload, thus turning the Cub into […]
