Random Arty Gubbins: Liam

Right, last night I decided I would make a much celebrated return to my old sketching days. Since the scanner where I'm staying is arsed, I had to take a picture of the sketch with my digital camera which killed a lot of quality off but theres enough there to give you an idea. The sketch to this point has taken about 45 minutes.

Its still a work in progress - the shading isnt complete, the fuselage cross / identification number and rudder swastika are just outlines at present.

Anyway: Bf-109E4/b of Stab/JG26, France, August 1940

It had to be a plane

I like it Although I have no artistic comments to make, simply because I suck at drawing. Then again, I don't play an instrument and it doesn't stop me from commenting on music... Ah well. Final comment: it looks cool.

From my minimal knowledge of plains, i.e il2, it looks pretty damn strait on, is it supposed to be from another pilots viewpoint, looking out the window, thats what i see it as anyway, and it looks sweet.

That's a pretty damn nice drawing Liam. It looks like it will turn out great when it is totally finished. I like the angle of the plane a lot.

I'm assuming it was taken from the lead Bf-109, yeah...although the formation spacing isnt typical for a German rotte.

Must be a staged shot.

In my opinion , you did well for the "Emil" model of the first world war years,
especially considering the "governail rope" and that hideous little cross at the back

Nevertheless, I do not get what the darkened surface on the left of the picture
represents...

I believe the darkened surface on the left( which goes down in a slant) is a view(in the foreground) from another plane( plane window). At least, that's what I think it is.

Yeah, I looked it up. Cockpit bracing from a second Bf-109.

Next - the Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk. The P-40 was never a great aircraft, but performed admirably even when terribly outclassed. It was the most widely used Allied fighter, serving with the most air forces.

P-40K5 'White 161'
China-Burma-India Theatre, based at Ling Ling, 1943
