Bright! I worship the beast!
Do you draw it with a real taking off model or from scrap?
Thanks

I use 4 sources : Real models kit for the view, aircraft plan for the rivets and details, photography for the colors

Do you draw in pencil and then outline in ink? What is your process? Great stuff!

First step, I draw the pencil lines, the most clean as possible.
secondly, I scan it.
In photoshop, I clean the lines with the rubber. Sometimes, I complete the missing lines with the tablet...
Then I can start to paint !

Truly a beast. It coudl withstand damage that would bring down most fighters.

There's a story where a German ace slutes the pilot of one of these after depelting all of his ammo on it and still failing to bring it down. When the American managed to land, he started counting the bullet holes, but stopped when he reached 200. :)

That was Robert S. Johnson. The German pilot was never identified, but it might have been Oberst Egon Mayer.
