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 […]
And now for another preserved Mustang: P-51B-1-NA s/n 43-24837 registered N515ZB and painted as “Berlin Express” flown by ace Bill Overstreet of the 357th Fighter Group, who became famous for flying under the Eiffel tower while successfully shooting down a Messerschmitt Bf 109 in 1944. “Berlin Express” flew across the Atlantic this year to take part […]
This profile was commissioned as part of a series on the Flying Horsemen aerobatic team. It is a P-51D-25-NA which previously flew with registrations N5077K, N711UP and N71TF. It was restored in 2005 and received the colours of Lt. Col. William Bailey’s “Double Trouble Two” of the 352nd Fighter Squadron, 353rd Fighter Group.
I’m adding a new category called “Work notes” to the website, comprising of notes I’ve taken while creating my profile templates. I’m hoping this might be of interest to viewers, and you should feel free to comment or make corrections if you believe I am mistaken on any topic. This first work note is about […]
The Spitfire F.21 was the last Spitfire version to serve in World War II. Considered as an interim version, it led to the ultimate Spitfire marks: the F.22 and F.24. These profiles were created for the book “Squadrons! No.7: The Supermarine Spitfire F.21” by Phil Listemann.
I recently learned of the passing of Stephen C. Ananian, who flew with the 339th Fighter Group during World War II. Stephen was born on Christmas Day 1922 and joined the Army Air Corps after Pearl Harbor. He was deployed to the UK with the 339th FG and was shot down on his first mission, […]
Here are four views of T-6G s/n 42-85886 “Ready for Duty”, registered F-AZBL. I don’t often get to make complete four-views of aircraft, so this was interesting !
Here’s a first Corsair profile, depicting F4U-5P BuNo 122019 which was flown by VC-61’s Detachment A on board the USS Philippine Sea off the Korean coast during the winter of 1950-1951. The F4U-5P was the photo-recon variant of the F4U-5, and could be identified by the camera windows on both sides of the fuselage. The […]
I’ve been working on creating a better template for the F4U Corsair. (Maybe I should say a proper template, as my original Corsair profiles date back to 2006 and are early work of very average quality at best). I’ve already finished the templates for the F4U-1D, F4U-4 (early and late production). There are still a […]
These profiles were created for the book Squadrons! No 3 – The Supermarine Spitfire Mk V in the Far East by Phil Listemann.
