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.
True. It pended way to much to the American side, barring some minor execptions. But I do think the show was cancelled before its time. For wha tI've read some years ago they intended to show more aces from all over the world in the follow-up seasons. The first episode of the canceled 3rd season would even be about the falklands war what would bring a breath of fresh air into it.
But, regardless, it was still a fun show to watch.
