Finally completed my P-63 Kingcobra a/c #444315. This is my second piece that depicts it - the first being a commission for the Wings Museum.

I'm still able to tweak it - so I certainly invite input.

Each of these prints will be paired w/ an actual piece from this specific aircraft, as recovered from this specific Sakhalin battle site.

I have high hopes for this marketing idea, and I'll certainly let y'all know how it goes. This is what I've got in mind:

That's looks just fine , Ron.
Excellent job. DO you use the 3Ds Max studio, working with the pics?

Greetings! No, I "hand paint" in Photoshop. I used 3D Studio Max in some of my architectural rendering projects - but only to set camera angles and lighting. I don't use rendering software because the results are so sterile and inorganic, though I know some guys who take the rendered image and repaint to correct this. To each his own.

I knew one guy who used the rendering software , based on ww2 game engine ( "IL-2 Shturmovick" PC simulator ). He took the image and polish it up with Photoshop.The final pics look also rather awesome.
The modern PC games give the almost finished geometry, lighting and sky .
