This new piece have just been completed for the Hickory Air Museum in North Carolina, USA. It depicts the museums F-105B Thunderchief set a new speedrecord from Eielson AFB, Ak to Eglin AFB, FL. It took Capt. Billy White 5hrs27m to complete the trip averaging 700 mph.
The highly reflective polished NM finish turned out to be quite difficult to work, with as he aircraft blended in with it surroundings and became lost in the mountainscape. But win creating the mountain ridges I made sure that i had a shaded wall around where I wanted the Thud, so the aircraft would pop out of the background. I hope it worked.
This piece will only be sold from the Hickort Air Museum store.
