Tophatters Centennial pt. 2

For the upcoming Tophatters centennial celebration, i´m working on a series of illustrations. Having completed the Super Bug, now it is Tomcat time (baby!). This F-14A Tomcat CAG bird have been sporing a variety of different tail paint schemes for the 80th anniversary which now is 20 years ago...and this is the one i found to be the most appealing. For this special occasion i decided to update the textures on my Tomcat, so this is infact the very first Tomcat rendition I do, in this new incarnation. Below is a few detail shots of the aircraft to give an impression of what it looks like in full resolution.

Tophatters Centennial pt. 1

Its been a while since my last update. However, things around here haven´t been quiet. I´ve been busy updating the galleries, and i´ve been busy working ona series of Tophatters renditions, since the squadron have a centennial celebration this year. With the kind help of many of you folks out there (thanks!) i´ve managed to drum up reference for the squadrons current CAG bird. This is the result of this effort! Now I´ll work myself backward in time, to the Tomcat, Phantom Demon and Skyknight. I´ll even do some of the very earliest aircraft to fly the Tophat. Let me know what you think of this Tophat Super Bug. Here´s a little detail shot, click it to be taken to the VFA-section
