Going backwards in time, The F3H-2 Demon came up as the next aircraft i had to depict. In the process i decided to rework the textures on the Demon basemodel, and this is the outcome. There´s something strangely alluring about this strange looking aircraft...perhaps it´s the design, that both have some destictive 3rd generation features, combined with 2nd generation layout. I´m not sure! But here it is: The F3H-2 Demon of VF-14 "Tophatters" as it appeared in 1961 while operating off the deck of USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (CVA-42).

The Tophatters 100th anniversary is coming up this year, and thats something that needs to be celebrated! I decided to make this piece for the celebrations, depicting their current FA-18E CAG bird and the Boeing FB-5 from 1929, flying in formation above their natural habitat: The Ocean. With the FA-18E having to fly with a very high angle of attack, not to overtake the FB-5. After having worked on this for a while, the amazement of how far along technology have come on 90 years haven´t left me. Hope you like this piece, which soon will be made available for sale. Below is a few high res samples
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 [...]
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 [...]
A New piece have just been completed ! The very last MIG killer of the Vietnam war is about to trap aboard USS Midway (CVA-41) in 1973. The aircraft was piloted by Lt. Kovaleski and Lt. Wise, when they shot down a MIG-17 on Jan. 12th, 1973. Artistically this was an attempt to capture the Phantom landing the last minutes of the of sunlight, in order for the aircraft to stand out against the dark background. It was attempted to capture the size and speed of the Phantom as it was about to trap aboard the carrier deck. This piece has yet to get at title. If anything [...]
I´m happy to annonce that I now finally have got both the E and the F model Super Hornet completed. This have resulted in the creation of the VFA section, which can be accessed below. The section is still in its very humble beginnings, but I decided to start things off with two not so flamboyant markings , in order to see if my base model was any good. I´m quite pleased with the outcome, and will now move on and add more profiles to the section. Also, the EA-18G will get completed very soon (but naturally end up in a different section). Let me know what Super [...]
I´ve been wanting to do this for a while! Adding a section that features the designes I´ve made for the RDAF and the story behind them. I´m extremely lucky to have the chance of doing such designes on more than one occasion, so my plans is to work my way through them all in chronological order. So here´s the story about the first one, i did after winning a competition in 2016. I had no idea what this would lead to, but thats a story i´ll let you in on a little later.

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
No introduction needed for this bird: The Mighty Scat XXVII, flow by none other than Col. Olds, on the mission where he made his last official MIG-kill. At low altitude while crossing a ridge, the MIG was exposed toward the sky and the last of Olds´ AIM-9Bs tracked and flew right up the tailpipe of the MIG. In this piece i have taken a few artistic liberties, the most apparent is the MIG kill markings on the splitter plate...they just looked too cool not to include. Let me know what you think of my depiction of this legendary jet and its legendary driver.
Here´s my latest piece, depicting Cunningham and Driscolls mission on May. 10th, 1972. The very day the pair shot down three MIG-17s, combined with the two they already have shot down, May 10th was also the day the two earned the status for Fighter Aces. Story goes that Showtime 100 had just released its load of Mk 20 Rockeyes, and shortly after was being jumped by a flight of MIG-17s. At that time the Phantom was flying slow, and was banking hard to see the impact of the Rockeyes. The aircraft had little momentum and the MIG-17 zoomed by the Phantom, putting it in a favorable shooting position. [...]
