F-4J Phantom Work in Progress

After a lengthy period of research and prep work I've finally got around to working with paint again.

This piece will show Shamrock 201 a F-4J Phantom from VMFA-333 gaining the only MiG kill by an USMC aircraft during the Vietnam War. The actual event took place on the 11th September 1972, and I'll post a little bit of the history in due course.

The line drawing transfered to the canvas and sealed with an acylic underpainting

The background blocked in, but with subtle field detail included. The Phantom was flying at about 1000 feet above ground level at this time so a level of detail will need to be shown.

The painting is oil on canvas, 36" x 24" and is available for purchase when complete, so drop me a line if you are interested

Had a great day at Duxford yesterday.

Spent yesterday watching the airshow and walking the flightline. What could be better.
