Condolences Nico.

Wrt. the kits, that Matchbox P-12 seems very interesting indeed! It's one of the first kits released by Matchbox in 1973.
I'm also interested in the Matchbox Heinkel He 70, as much for the box art as for the kit itself.

For those who like to model Japanese subjects, here's something to fire up your inspiration this autumn... ;)
Including 32 very diverse profiles by yours truly :)
I'd recommend grabbing a couple of those Hasegawa 1/32 kits...

Panel lines are a tad heavy, but otherwise nice work.

One of the most underexposed fighters of WW2. Looking good, though a little too speckly too my taste.

On most hobby forums, discussing politics is a cardinal sin and subject to banning.

Great work guys! Very nice!

If I find the time, or you find the right subject, I'd love to make a contribution at one point or another (3D art, profile art, airshow photos, walkarounds, ...).

Thanks a lot guys! I hope you all had a good Christmas weekend!

Nice pics Nico! Some of these can be found in full-colour in Damien's book by the way.

Warplane Art / TSR2: Hell-For-Leather
« on: December 24, 2010, 02:59:19 AM »


After their nuclear attack against a Soviet industrial target, the crew of this TSR2 dive back to the relative safety of supersonic low-level flight. With the bomber’s cover now broken, a “Shilka” self-propelled anti-aircraft gun is the first enemy unit to respond. As they speed away from the target, hopes are high for a safe return to their forward air base in West Germany... if it is still there. This is the doomsday scenario that could have unfolded, had the Cold War turned hot and had the TSR2 not been cancelled in 1965.

Around the height of the Cold War, the British government released a specification for a nuclear-capable strike and reconnaissance aircraft. The result was the British Aircraft Corporation TSR2. Sadly Britain was in a poor financial position at that time and simply couldn't afford this state-of-the-art machine. The cancellation that followed in 1965 nearly wiped out military aircraft production in the UK.

This image was created for Damien Burke's superlative book TSR2, Britain's Lost Bomber, published by Crowood. If you have any interest in the TSR2 at all, this is the one book to get. Freshly researched, it debunks all the misinformation and myths that surrounds it and adds lots of new insight, information and fantastic technical detail that has been hidden in archives for over four decades. An absolute must for anyone interested in Cold War aviation. More information about this book can be found on

Prints of the cover art are available through my web store at

Merry Christmas everyone!


PS. Below a few close-ups:

I created a profile drawing of the Mitsubishi-Payen Pa 400 for the Japanese Secret Projects book, awhile ago:
