An old piece of work showing air racing from the 30's over the fields of Ohio.

Excellent! I like your dynamic perspective. The way you handled the landscape below gives a great sense of motion & speed. And, of course, the planes are very well done.

Very nice!

Trumper, I believe the end plane is a Seversky P35 if I remember correctly.

Thanks for your kind words, jritner.

Nice work. Back in the day that would have been used in an advert for gasoline or rubber tyres or something. I always had a soft spot for the pre and post-war advert art. A relative had a big collection of National Geographic from the 50's and the art in those adverts was epic, you don't get that these days, more's the pity.
