Freelancers Tomcat

A F-14 Tomcat and a F-4 Phantom both from VF-21 have been completed. Let´s make this a friendly “cyber dogfight” and see which of the two get the most likes. I decided to undertake the endevour of making another lineage print. This time depicting the the lineage of VF-21 “Freelancers”. In order to do that quite a few new paint schemes had to be completed, and this is the first result: A F-14A Tomcat of the Freelancers as it appeared in 1986, shortly after the squadron had traded their Phantoms for the Tomcat. I also completed a F-4J Phantom of the Freelancers, which also can be found by clicking the image below: F-4J Phantom, VF-21 "Freelancers", 1974

Freelancer Phantom

A F-4 Phantom and a F-14 Tomcat both from VF-21 have been completed. Let´s make this a friendly "cyber dogfight" and see which of the two get the most likes.

In order to do that quite a few new paint schemes had to be completed, and this is the first result: A F-4J Phantom of the Freelancers as it appeared in 1975, arguably in the period where US navy aircraft were most colorful. I also completed a F-14A Tomcat of the Freelancers, which also can be found by clicking the image below: F-14A Tomcat, VF-21 "Freelancers", 1986

Twilight Sabres

Here´s a new 3d piece, depicting two F-86s flying at twilight over Korea during the early 50s. The one closest to the camera was flow by Lt. Col V. Garrison and the one banking in the distance was flow by Col. H. R. Thyng. The main purpose pf this piece was to depict the clean a sleek shape of the F-86, and to do a light study of the neutral metal surface reflecting the setting sun. Originally i wanted to add a flaming MIG to the piece, but with the kind advice of many of my sites visitors and the member of two F-86 groups, I decided to add a Wingman to the closest F-86, in order to retain the calmness, I think this piece projects. Still no title, but as usual: Can you help me finding a suiting title? Hope you like it !

Recce-Rhino over Vietnam

This RF-4C Phantom is depicted on a recce mission over Vietnam in 1969. As the flak fire becomes intensive, the Spook lights the burners to get out of a hairy situation fast. Low clouds over the Rice paddies and high moisture in the air makes it a bumpy ride. The RF-4C is from the 16th TRS, 460th TFW that operated out of Tan Son Nhut Air Base from early 1966 to mid 1971. This piece lacks a title, and as usual I would love to hear your suggestions, to an appropriate title for this piece. Thanks ;)
