Re: Short Brother's Biplane

I didn't even know that it existed. The torpedo looks huge and the radiatom looks unusual. What medium have you used Gray.
Very professional looking and neat.

Re: Short Brother's Biplane

John, these are both digital paintings and drawings I've done in the past. The drawings are done with vector graphics and the paintings are done with a simple paint program.
Trumper, thanks.
Jim, a piece of string, indeed.
They were graceful old aircraft. I would love to see one in flight.
