Here´s a 3d digital art piece depicting a F-106A Delta Dart intercepting a Tu-22 Blinder. The F-106A is from the 5th Fighter Interceptor Squadron. Trying to find a good angle for the F-106 wasn´t difficult, but i wanted to have the afterburner exposed, so this is the result. Hope you like it!
I´ve been giving the the Tophatters alot of attention these past few weeks, so I thought it was only appropriate to show the USAF a bit of TLC too. With that I decided to build my Interceptor section, with four all new Deadly Deltas. Two Deuces (32nd FIS, 326th FIS) and two Sixs (5th FIS and 48th FIS). I sure hope you enjoy this batch of colorful sleek cold war Interceptors. As always, these can become available as a print ready to hang on your wall...just drop me a line, if you are interested Click the image below to be taken to the Interceptor section.
Here´s a piece that was just completed. After having been working on a few print with multiple aircraft on it, i wanted to explore how to present a single aircraft. I choose the Six for my first test, and here´s the result. For you F-106 fans out there: This piece will be available for purchase, and even better: If you want the F-106 to have a different paint scheme that too will be a possible. Below is a few details shots of the print:

By popular demand: a F-106A Delta Dart of the 49th Fighter Interceptor Squadron. This aircraft was assigned to the CO of the squadron, which teh fuselage bands are a tell tale indication of. The 49th was the last active F-106 squadron which kept on flying the ultimate interceptor until 1987. Click the link below to be taken to the 21st Air Division section.

The F-106 is now finally complete ! And per request, the 318th FIS is the first incarnation of this new model. After working on the Six for the past many weeks i´ve become to appreciate this elegant aircraft quite a lot, and i can assure anyone out there, that this is not the last F-106 you´ll see from my hand ! I have received many suggestions on what colors to put on this jet, and in time i hope to make them all ! Thanks so much for your support ! Here´s a few detail shots of the F-106 model.

The headline is what you may call, not completely true. However, there´s some truth behind it after all. The F-106 is coming along, and i thought it would be a good time to show you all a sample of how far along the Delta Dart have gotten. It´s a great looking aircraft IMHO, and the sleek lines is truly a pleasure to work on. Right now I´m thinking about modelling the landing gear too, and put it into 3d scenes (I got a landing scene in mind, that i think would look awesome...just need to figure out what colors to put on the six...suggestions are welcome). Hope you like it !
