Daily Deviation

Given 2004-08-03
"A brake in the storm" by `p-51 is an example of just how flexible modern graphics programs are. His choice of tools as well as his use of vivid colors make this piece fast, vibrant, and full of life. This one is definitely a Jewel in a sea of digital paintings. - *dxd ( Suggested by dxd and Featured by Mike )

Such an amazing painting with the Hispano fighting to Escape what looks to be three Spitfire Mk.V's with their two 20mm cannons and four .303's. It looks like the German aircraft is trying to bring the Spitfires closer the ground where it's lower speeds don't matter as much when you can maneuver through the trees (the Hispano being a Reconnaissance-Fighter if I'm not correct)
I love this painting, It shows you have a passion for aircraft!
I apologize if I'm inncorrect about The Hispano

This is great-but why did you paint a hispano and not an original Me-109?

... sorry about the critique, but I couldn't but note a critical flaw in the drawing: the Bf109 actually isn't a Bf109, but a Hispano HA-1112-M1L series 'Buchon'.

The 'Buchon' was in fact a Spanish-built version of the old '109G, but used a Rolls-Royce Merlin 500-45 instead of the Daimler-Benz DB 605. Because of the different engine installation, the Spanish 109 has a totally different look to the German 109. (And it's got a four-bladed propellor, something which the German 109's never had!) Probably most remarkable about the Buchon is, that their production ran from 1954 to 1958, and they were in service with the Spanish air force as late as 1967...

Also - as I'm in a nit-picky mood, sorry about that - the Spitfire (a Mark 9) has the correct C-type markings (which were introduced from 1942), while the Hurricane (a Mk 1, which wasn't used after 1941) sports A1-type markings, which were replaced by the C1-type markings in 1942, the old brown/green camouflage (which was replaced by the grey/green day-fighter camouflage from 1941 on) ... and even more confusingly, has its fin-flash on the rudder, which was only ever done on the Hurricanes of 73 squadron during the Battle of France (1940)
