A New print have been completed! This time a F-4J Phantom of VF-103 "Sluggers" shortly before scoring the Navys first and only night MIG Kill. on Aug. 10th, 1972, Lt Cdr Robert E. Tucker , Jr and Lt(jg) Stanley B. Edens fired two AIM-7E Sparrows at a MIG-21 while performing MIGCAP during an Alphastrike. Both missiles found their target and the MIG-21 was destroyed making the two the first and only Phantom crews in the US NAVY to claim a night kill. This piece depicts the scene...however, there´s been taken a few artistic liberties on this one... The kills happend at a lower altitude and the MIG was [...]
On the drawing board right now, is a VF-114 "Executioners/Aardvarks" lineage print. In order to get a complete lineup, these four brand new profiles have been completed. All from the 50s, while the squadron was called the "Executioners". Throughout the 50s the squadron operated no fewer than five different aircraft. The F8F-1 Bearcat (which isn´t on this site yet), the F4U-4B Corsair, the F9F-5 Panther and the F2H-3 Banshee. Some sources state that the squadron also have operated the F9F-6 Cougar, but i´ve been unable to verify that (any help on that matter would be greatly appreciated). Below you´ll find the VF-114 gallery as it looks at this [...]

This is my first Marine lineage print, so i´ve been excited to show this to you all. This piece depicts the linegae of the VMFA-314 "Black Knights". Their first aircraft was the F4U-1 Corsair which was used in the late war years in the Pacific theater. The squadron was decommssioned in 1947, but recommissioned a few year later flying F9F-5 Panthers. In the late 50s the Panthers were traded for the more capable F4D-1 Skyray. The Phantom came into service in the early 60s, and remained in service in 1982 when the FA-18 Hornet would take the Phantoms place. The Hornet remained in squadron service until 2019, when [...]

After having worked on a similar scene with a VF-102 F-4 Phantom I was curious to see how it would look with a Tomcat as the main subject...Here´s the result: A F-14A Tomcat of VF-102 "Diamondbacks" as it appeared in 1984 while operating off the deck of USS America (CV-66). For this piece i when for a slightly different color tone than on the Phantom. While the Gull grey color on the Phantom gave teh overall impression of a warmer tone, this piece have a more bluish tint, which i think suits the TPS scheme better. This piece was made for the former RIO of this aircraft, an [...]
