After completing the VMFA-314 profile lineage print, I had to work on a 3D print too. This piece features all 6 aircraft types the Black Knights have operated: F4U-1C Corsair, F9F-5 Panther, F4D-1 Skyray, F-4B Phantom (represents all Phantom variants the squadron have operated), FA-18A++ Hornet and the F-35C Lightning II. This piece is available both as wall art (many size and medium options to choose from, phone cover, t-shirts, towels etc etc etc from fineartamerica.com. To purchase click the link below:
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 the squadron began training on the F-35C Lightning. Please let me know how you like this new lineage print, and if there´s any other lineage print you would like to see completed. This piece will go on sale very soon.
As i´m currently working on a series of 10 Hornet prints, I have completed a couple of new profiles. These two new profiles are a FA_18A+ Hornet from VMFA-115 and a FA-18C Hornet from VMFA-232, both as they appear right now. My plan is to cover more USMC squadrons, but also to show the Navy squadrons some attention (more on that later). Below you´ll find the two album sin which the profiles are featured. As usual: Let me know what you think !
During the process of updating the VMFA gallery, I was made aware that the section had some shortcomings. So I had to do something about that, and here´s my first effort: Four new USMC F-4 Phantom renditions! the depicted squadrons are VMFA-251, -312,-314 and -334. All of which can be found in the VMFA section (click the image below to be taken to the gallery). Hope you like them ;) Click image to be taken to the VMFA section
Here´s the result of something i´ve been working on for the past few month: A history of the grey colors used on the US military F-4 Phantoms. After i´ve spend many years working on renditions of that particular aircraft, I´ve accumulated a bit of knowledge about the paint schemes this great look jet have been sporting, over its long service period. I thought to myself: Why not share that knowledge with you guys. So, here´s the result: Fifty shades of grey: The history of the grey colors used on US Military F-4 Phantoms. If you like it, drop me a line in the comments section ;) NB! Allow a bit of load time and make sure to read all 7 pages ;)
In an effort to get a full line up of VMFA-squadrons I have now completed a F-4J Phantom of VMFA-212 "Lancers". It can be found in the VMFA-section
The Marine Corps section have finally been launched. With that the VMFA section which features the Marine Fighter Attack squadrons (and all incarnations of those squadrons). This section features F-4 Phantoms, F-8 Crusaders and soon also F4D Skyrays and FJ Furys. I hope you´ll stop by for a closer inspection of this new section on my site.
