Quoting clayton Marchetti Wow! This is amazing. It's art. Excellent
I'm very happy with how this turned out. It took about 5 tries with the rendering software to get the sunset light correct, and it's still not "right" in the way it's shining on the plane...limitations with my understanding of how to manipulate the program, mainly, but still a pretty effect. The background image was too stunning to not use, I'm very pleased with how this turned out.

Quoting Matt Bace Wow! I really have to learn how to use GIMP. I've played around with it a little, but not enough to know how to do some of the great editing that you've been doing. These last two F-8 pictures have just been fantastic. And speaking of "recce runs", is there any chance you'll be doing an RA-5C in the future? -- that's a great looking aircraft.
I might do both an A-5 (the original carrier based bomber version) and the RA-5C, right now leaning towards an A-4 Skyhawk build.

Quoting Gabor Pauler This rendering made me thinking about how TLG could make more money selling more high-end sets supplied with good quality realistic decals instead of the present primitive and infantile ones. They could take a bit from the market of model kits.
The problem lies in that model kit style wet slide decals take a lot of surface preparation to apply, and to be protected properly have to be sealed after application. They would not really work in a LEGO style application, although Japanese model-style dry transfers may, as usually included with Mobile Suit Gundam models.

Quoting El Barto ! Awesome! Great series you've got going here! Thunder Chief next?
Haven't decided. I do want to do an F-105 (A and D versions), may do an A-4 Skyhawk, or go ahead and tackle my personal fav the F-14. So many choices!
