After having worked on a similar scene with a VF-102 F-4 Phantom I was curious to see how it would look with a Tomcat as the main subject...Here´s the result: A F-14A Tomcat of VF-102 "Diamondbacks" as it appeared in 1984 while operating off the deck of USS America (CV-66). For this piece i when for a slightly different color tone than on the Phantom. While the Gull grey color on the Phantom gave teh overall impression of a warmer tone, this piece have a more bluish tint, which i think suits the TPS scheme better. This piece was made for the former RIO of this aircraft, an overall very nice guy and someone I happy to call my friend. To purchase this artwork as a print (many sizes and medium options), as a phone cover, t-shirt, towel, shower curtain etc etc etc...click the link below to browse the options.

The Banshee was completed a few days ago, and since I already have a Diamondbacks Phantom on file, the only aircraft missing in order to have a complete lineup is the Ford (F4D-1 Skyray), which will be completed over the next couple of days. Let me know how you like these two new additions to the Diamondbacks lineup.
I´m thrilled to have this model complete ! I´ve been trying to model it on a few occasions, and never been happy with the result. Now i´m quite pleased with the outcome, and i can now annonce that the F2H-3 and F2H-4 Banshee basemodel is complete! First off this model will be used to create lineage prints, and i´ll start of with VF-102 Diamondbacks. Then move on to VF-213 Black Lions. Let me know if there´s other lineages you would like to see.
