Looks good Jim - not too sure about the overlap of the distant aircrafts nose by the wing - makes for a slight jumble in my mind -(but that's not unusual!)

Thanks for spotting that Neil.
The Flap on the nearest a/c looks too big to fit if retractes, and the Stbd u/c door gives the impression that it is the stbd flap hanging the wrong way. However as it lives in the pile, with a multitude of pals, it will be staying as is
Regards Jim

Love Corsairs! Nicely done painting!

I whole heatedly agree with you, definitely a case of 'if it looks right it probably is right.'

I like the nice bright sunny feeling, Jim.

I like the nice bright sunny feeling, Jim.

With the fragrant scent of Hibiscus on the gentle tropic breeze. Or more likely a hot humid wind blowing sand and bugs into your every orifice, with the sickly smell of Avgas and Hydraulic oil catching your throat.
We owe then a lot.

I don't know Jim, I love the smell of gas and oil and machinery. I can't think of anything better.

Depends where it is, and what your doing I suppose. I must admit, once, while walking around East Fortune Aviation museum, when asked by one of the staff what I thought of it. I said the a/c seemed dead, and they could improve the place by slinging a couple of buckets of Avcat and Hydraulic oil about the place! He was not impressed.

Wonderful scene. Great colors.
