Really excellent!!! I think this has been done with dry laundry detergent over acrylic white paint, still wet, and washed after only short time, just enough for detergent to solve color.

No doubt!!! :-obey :-ok Just mentioned 3D as ultimate level of making engineering design, not as art. :)

Although I don't work with profiles and 3 view drawings like No.1, Felixdk, Santynus and rest of the friends from forum and all around world :-red, I agree with opinion that only changing actual photo within Photoshop is nothing more than playing or learning what Photoshop can do. Beside Photoshop, Illustrator, Corel Draw and some other graphic and prepress programs, I had had to learn maybe the best engineering design program - AutoCAD from Autodesk. This program is one of few able to be really precise in true designing of airplane or anything else: mechanical, architecture, electronics etc. Problem with 3 views that we deal with on our computers, is that they are in 99% SCANNED originals or their copies, not design drawn from scratch! There is problem with old wrinkled paper of original(at best) or just xth copy of copy of original(at worst and very common). There is also problem with distortion during scanning, ability of man who performs scanning to achieve most from scanned material etc. So, for me, only really accurate profiles are those which are produced from "blank page" at your monitor in some of next programs: AutoCAD, Catia, Pro Engineer etc. Unfortunately, these are VERY expensive programs for enthusiasts like us - AutoCAD - 4000 Euros in Europe! Of course there are much cheaper and simpler substitutions for such works like Intelli CAD, Brick CAD, etc and most of them have prefix of suffix CAD. Only then those wonderfull profiles can be 100% technically accurate. For 3D rendering there is also 3D Studio MAX and lot of smaller programs that are helping in creating true masterpieces of electronic art - our friend and member of this forum Skyraider3D is living example and (in my humble opinion :-red) truly expert for this.

Combat Warplanes / Aero meeting in Belgrade
« on: April 19, 2007, 10:47:10 PM »
Only International Aero meeting in Belgrade (as far as I remember) happened on June, 15. 1997. Guests were from Italy with AMX, Greece with Mirage 2000B and Russia with Su-27 and Il-76. Russians performed "Zvono", "Cobra" and other acrobatics, but unfortunately my film with this moments was ruined in photo lab :-wall :-bat. Photos was taken with simple "idiot" camera; as you can see quality is poor(sorry Mfg495 :-red), but these are one of my most precious memories! All photos taken by Dejan Ivanovic.

If I'm right, "Kelly's Heroes" is about "private enterprise" during WW2 - taking large amount of German gold from bank in small French village behind front line, with Clint Eastwood, Telly Savalas, Donald Sutherland etc? This movie was on cable TV in Belgrade a few weeks ago and I could swear that I saw 522!!! It also performed in old Yugoslav movie called "Partizanska avijacija" meaning Partsan's Airforce about creating resistance in air against German occupation during WW2. 522 and Kraguj was main "actors". This movie has a lot influence on me and my interesting for airplanes.

Mfg495, sorry for confusion! You are right about "Detroit Miss", code E2-D, it's Drew's plane (source: Squadron Signal no. 6001 - Aces of the Eight) ; I was thinking (but did not tell :-wall) about P-51 which photo you have from ILA Berlin - Big Beautiful Doll! :-ok Think that Squadron Signal is valuable source. Never mind the age, if you are young in your hart, my friend!
