|Progressive stages of painting development.|
|1. I drew the symbol for the|
479th Fighter Group on an 8” x 10”
white masonite board. Once I finished
painting in the squadron symbol,
I covered it with paper and started
working on the P-51 Mustang.
|2. Drew the P-51, and painted the red tail,|
tail color for the 434th Fighter Squadron.
Completed the cockpit, and USA insignia.
Painted in the black of the propeller,
wheels, and L2 W. Added dark forest
green anti-reflection to engine cowling.
|3. Painted in silver on the fuselage and wings, then added highlights and shadows.|
Added in the panel lines, and the “Scat VI” on the engine cowling, completed the
exhaust pipes and added the exhaust stains down the side of the fuselage.
Painted in the air-to-air symbols on the canopy railing, and the tail number.
I signed the painting and General Olds signed at an art exhibit in Washington D.C.
