Nice painting on sea and the ship...

in the other hand I feel the skyhawk perspective somewhat not right...... the foreshortening and the direction and size of wheel..... the logo should be smaller me think (I have a 1/72 NZ A4 before my nephew tear it apart :D)

Iwan thank you for your C&C I'm not sure I agree with you re the perspective of the a/c, however I do think the perspective with the ship is definately wrong, I feel that the ship should be pivoted at he bow and the stern dropped a bit. The thing is, the catapult is fired as the bow is at the bottom of the ships pitching, allowing the a/c to leave the flightdeck at the top of the cycle, so , here the bow is on its way down again.
Thanks for your comments
Jim
