    P-51 Mustang

    WW2 American fighter served mainly in Europe. There primary mission was to fly all the way from British bases to targets of the 8th AF deep in Germany- to Berlin and beyond- escorting heavies and gradually establishing Allied air superiority.

    A really wonderful painting and I cannot but appreciate it as an aeronautical engineer.
    The final part of the war saw many wonderful fighters roll outs, also from an aesthetic standpoint.
    Obviously availability of materials, especially for engines, and mass production different capabilities made the substantial difference to establish air superiority.
    It's just a pity that whilst there are still plenty of P51 Mustangs and a good number of Spitfires around and still flying, those of the losing countries have practically no more flying aircraft among what is left.
    I'm talking of the german Messerschmitt Bf 109 and 262 (the first fighter jet; the first actual jet aircraft was an Italian prototype as well as the idea of the moodern turbojet design they didn't finance though), the Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero and the Italian Macchi 202 and 205 Veltro (Hunting dog).
    Germany in particular developped many stunning experimental concept in that period, although most of them would have required today's flight control systems to really exploit their potential (see their Junkers flying wing).
    Panta rei (everything flows)!

    That is really good, love the detail which is amazing especially as done on your Ipad.
    Being an Ipad user, but not for drawing I can't imagine getting all that detail on that little screen and in such correct proportions.

    Thank you all very much. I am always a little hesitant to do artwork of this nature because I know there are many experts out there and I am not one of them. It sounds like I passed the test though and that makes me happy. Once again thank you all very much.
