A friend of mines favourite aircraft is B17 Sally B so i though i would get some ideas for a montage for him.These are quick acrylic sketches to try things out.
I will sort out the ideas and probably do them in oils.

Don't like the two things hanging down from the middle one. They look like u/c
Other than that it's coming on fine.

Hi Jim ,they are the bomb bay doors i hadn't seen them in that light before ,that's the benefit of a 3rd party point of view.
I will have another look and see if i can tone them down a bit. :)

I think it's the blobs on the bottom, makes them look like wheels. Remember, 'Plans Spotters' know exactly what you have painted. Other beings just have to go with what their eyes tell them.

Coming along, Trumper. I always find montages to be challenging.
