'Yellow Ten' was among the Fw-190s found by the allies at Wuntsdorf in 1945...

Another good piece of work. The composition works well ,bringing the main subject in close enough for detail while giving the wider spread of the trio.

Thanks, Neil... here's something in a similar vein:


"Late Swallows" (Major Erich Hohagen, Lechfeld 1944)

I've just altered the canopy shape of Yellow Ten, which hadn't looked quite right:

There is only one comment I can make

Did you did this painting from photographs of a model ?

If so in future *Remember* when using models of propeller driven aircraft ... You must move the position of the prop each time you take a photo for each additional aircraft in the picture

Apart from the I really like your paintings :thumbsup:

It is a bit obvious in this one, isn't it?:lol: I do normally give careful attention to the prop blades on the models, but this time I was sloppy. Anyway, I guess it's not impossible they were all spinning in unison :angel: But I'll take a look at changing it since it is a good point you've made (it's varnished now). Thanks, gollum.

Edit: I had a look and it would be too big a job (and risky) to change even one of them, so I'll leave it. It'd be different if I'd painted one of the numbers in the wrong place.

Yeah I agree ... leave it but remember this in the future .... I made the same mistake once & was soon picked up on it :)

Thank you for that observation - I have tended to use single aircraft images and make portraits of the machine - but its a tip worth remembering

you have an eagle eye for detail that's for sure :thumbsup:
