Not the first time i've painted this plane, there's something about the curves that i find fascinating.

Bit moody, this one. I was hoping to create a moody atmosphere, rather than the usual summer skies i normally end up with. Hope you like, anyway.

I think you succeeded with the moody feel, a nice feeling of depth with the light on the water in the distance
Thanks for sharing.

A pleasing scene . I think the photo quality is detracting from the image . I get the feeling that the jet is fuzzy but zoomed in I guess it is quite sharp .

I agree, very pleasing.

Thanks for the comments all. The photo is a bit fuzzy, i think that's a good excuse for me to upgrade my camera which i've had for 2 years now, time to treat myself, i think...

NB The paint scheme is that of 603 Squadron, a Royal Auxiliary Air Force unit, which converted to Vampire FB5s in May 1951. This Vampire belonged to Wing Commander Ernest Millington.

I love the "old" nostalgic look of this ,the colours are subdued--lovely :)
There are some terrific cameras out there now,you need to ask yourself what do you want it for ie portability,or DSLR with interchangeable lenses, upper price bracket etc.
