Everyone always mentions the Spitfire but the Hawker Hurricane and its variants carried so much of the weight during those dark early years and continued throughout the conflict.
They were sleek and sexy.
The good old Thunderbolt was squat, fat and ugly but the damn thing could take a beating then get up and stomp a mud-hole in the enemy.
Just like the Corsair, the Tornado or the Warthog; we build them to survive and bring the pilot home.
Well I think that's enough sermonizing for now.
As always I appreciate your work and your sharing them.
Ever consider doing a convoy? Those merchant marines in Liberty ships are some truly unsung heroes of that conflict.
The P-47 was the beginning of a true tank destroyer. It broke the German's back at The Battle of Bulge and supply convoys throughout the war.
I admires all aspects of "The Greatest Generation" as my dad was a pilot and three uncles served in the army and navy. They never talked much about the War, always so humble yet proud.
Yes, the Merchant Marines would be a great subject. I also can related to the shipyard workers that produced these ships every thirty days.
I had several layouts for this subject, but finally realized I had to many planes in the scene.
Simplified with less. Thanks for the kind words.
Look up bogey at Dictionary.com: World War II aviator slang for "unidentified aircraft, presumably hostile,"
Thanks for the feedback.
