  1. Can you do NK 504 (BuNo. 142031) of VA-145. This was the bird Deiter Denglar was shot down in on 2 Feb 66. I have 2 pics I can email for this. Stephen Mudgett
  2. Wow, This looks incredible!! Tell me how much and where to email it to, 🙂 I'm officially impressed. I'm now working out mesh patterns in my head. I'm hoping the Covid don't take me before I get to buy this from you, Stephen
  3. In case you do some NAVAIR birds: [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] Hey, how did this get in here? [/URL] Regards, Stephen Mudgett
  4. 11bee, Soulfreak, Thanks Guys, For the kind words. Stephen
  5. Mark, As always, your stuff is excellent. We do the tradeashow display mountings for White Mountain Puzzles (They're local). Glad to see they are printing something decent for a change;) Best regards, Stephen
  6. The last two for now. [/url] [/url] [/url] Regards, Stephen
  7. I Mask & Airbrush, as well as utilize the various 'pixel herding' tools found in Adobe Photoshop. As I said above, the pilot's head is a colorized, reduced and flipped B/W photo composited to a painted body. I only do Aircrew on Helos, due to the need to animate the blades for optimum placement of the Fuselage on a printed sheet. The Stencils (which are accurate and legible, I might add) are fonts I utillize as well. Note the difference between the pilot's face and the painted face of the door gunner. I paint conventionally, with digital brushes,tools and masks. Look back (way back)a
  8. elebenbee, Thnx Dude. Though it may be hard to see on the print... Get Some. ;)/> Gray, Your stuff is so Lavish! Apologies for loosing touch, business is down. I'm adapting to neighbors that are trying to help me "come out of my shell" (having absolutely no clue how essential solitude is to an Artist/Modeler?!) :o/> Bless 'em, for tryin'. The food is good, though ;)/> Stephen
  9. Thankyou for the nice words. There is some really exceptional work posted here by everyone. Stay tuned, Stephen
  10. Flown by (then) 2nd Lt. Jack Thomas with Over 300 Combat missions during the 1963 deployment to South VietNam. Crop of detail, aircrew, Rotor & Hub still to do. Rotor & Hub just finished Yankee Sierra 55 with the Red Wings seen on these birds when they were back stateside at MCAS New River. Aircrew finished. The Pilot's head is a colorized b/w photo, reversed and composited to a painted body. The photo is of the Print recipiant, Jack Thomas. Regards, Stephen

    Longhorn 02

    Thank you, guys, Really kind words from you all. These things start out as chore that must be done. Eventually I find I don't want to stop working on them. Regards, Stephen
  12. Finished this yesterday. For the Skipper of NAS Fallon's SAR TEAM. His retierment prese Regards, Stephen
  13. Funny you should say that, since until just recently, photos on your website in the past contained no watermarks.
  14. Given that you don't own the copyrights to the photos, why watermark them. They only ruin the pictures. I quit veiwing your sight after a few minutes. Probably won't return if watermarks continue.
  15. Here's one of Italy's sharpest looking birds (IMHO) a Series VII C.202 Regards, Stephen
  16. Vincent, The RA-3B you are trying to depict is from VAP-61. See my attached profile illustration. Regards, Stephen
  17. Thank you guys, for your very kind words. I do have to admit I made a mistake on the fishtail exhaust being on a Mk I, they were not introduced until the Mk II came on the scene. I have corrected the illustration accordingly. Regards, Stephen
  18. Just finished last night. A detail crop. Hope all is well with you guys. Stephen
  19. Pete, Concept and excecution is excellent, IMHO. A technical point, though, Navy centerline tanks are 2 degrees nose down in relation to the bottom of the fuselage (as are the wing pylons), not paralell like the later USAF centerlines. Maybe it's me, but the centerline tanks on your 2 fwd a/c don't appear to be nose down. (It's probably me) Regards, Stephen
  20. No, this is all the customer wanted. He's shipping the print to Marcel Albert to sign and return it. I'm going to ask him to send an extra print for me. Thank you for the compliments. Regards, Stephen
  21. But I just finished this. Kool looking bird, though. Here is a crop of the panel detail. Here's the Yak-3 I did of the a/c found a La Bourget (actually, I did this first, quite by accident). Regards, Stephen Mudgett
  22. You did'nt happen to take pictures of the other side of that AWG-10 Radar Package found in the Havelock, NC gallery, did you? If you have higher resolution images of these, I sure could use them. Regards, Stephen www.stephenmudgett.com
  23. Just let me know what you are looking for in return. Please, CONUS only, trying to keep shipping costs down. Sorry. Please respond to me at: stephenDOTmudgett@myfairpointDOTnet
