Airfix Hawker Hound + Me219 late 2000s box

Created in co-operation with small brown dog, using his Hawker Hound and Me219 images. The box-tops were recreated in Photoshop CS from scratch using suitable artwork, stock and fonts as well as the Airfix logo.

There are currently five in the zipfile, the late 2000s box type,the 90s box type all the way back to the sixties.

See the original here: www.deviantart.com/small-brown…

Did I change SBD's work? Not much at all, just increased the contrast a bit and tipped the image a little to make it a bit more alive and dynamic as per typical Airfix box-art.

SBD's work is worth show-casing. I know he likes me doing these box-tops as it takes him to a place where he is seven years old and seeing his work in the context of a small boy.

I see everything from the perspective of a 7 year old :)

Dog years I could say although I have missed a few out.

I see the world from the same height as a 7 year old and if they made the old models in the same old packaging my shelves would be full. Perhaps that is the next step, to start printing boxes.

I have a real fondness for the plastic bags with the paper headers that fold out into the instructions.
That was my early world of Airfix. I have toyed with reproducing the old Johnnie Johnson MK9  artwork complete with pale blue parts on sprue in a bag but I would use a Spectre of course. It would take some time.

Oh yes. I'm with you 100%. It has to be real.

Will be a while before I have anything new to post as I have been decorating and today I start my new rig build :)
