"The Netherlands" is indeed the correct word for our country (I'm Dutch) but "Holland" is often used too. Originally "Holland" only meant the west provinces of the country.

PS. Some nice Tempest related sites: (lots of amazing combat reports!)

Great profile! The blue colour of the roundels looks a bit too saturated and too purple perhaps, though.

...Venvolw (Holland)...
You meant "Venlo" I assume? :)

Thanks very much, guys! :)

Santynus, 3D aviation art indeed takes a very long time. Currently I am working on a Corsair and I started this more than a year and a half ago. Progress is slow - partly my fault, partly because I am very busy, and partly because it is very complex.

Of course I am biased, but that's one of your best profiles! I like it a lot!  :-ok

Maybe turn it into an off-topic forum, so anything can be discussed there? :)

Very nice subject! The metal effects are pretty good.

Warplane Art / Tiger's Revenge & the pilot's story behind air combat art
« on: January 25, 2007, 11:05:35 PM »
Hi all! Here is my latest artwork: "Tiger's Revenge"

Last year I was commissioned to make an artwork for veteran P-51 Mustang pilot Lt. William S. "Tiger" Lyons, who flew with the 357th FS/355th FG during World War 2. I had the pleasure of interviewing Mr Lyons over the telephone and pick his brain on his experiences over Germany during 1944/45. He told me about several air battles in which he took part, and I decided to portray the one in which he scored his second victory, on 9 February 1945. Rather than telling you what happened, I have added a cropped sound recording from this interview, in which Mr Lyons vividly describes his air battle with a German Messerschmitt 109! On this day he was flying wingman for Lt. Edward J. Moroney. Click the image below to download or listen to the sound recording.

The "Tiger's Revenge" artwork was presented to Mr Lyons during the 355th Fighter Group reunion by Peter Randall of the Little Friends website, last October in Philadelphia. Here is a photo of Mr Lyons signing the prints. Below a photo of Mr Lyons holding one of the prints:

Mr Lyons signed twenty large canvas prints for me, which are available here:
The prints are museum-quality giclee canvas prints at approximately A2 size.
If interested, don't wait too long - there are only TWO pilot-signed prints left!
For those interested in a more affordable print, normal prints are available here as well:

A photo of the real machine can be found on my website.

For those interested in seeing how "Tiger's Revenge" was made, I have created a video which shows the buildup of the layers, which resulted in the final artwork. A high and low quality Quicktime has been uploaded. Hopefully it will be of interest:


Last but definitely not least, "Tiger's Revenge" is currently exhibited in the Military Aviation Museum in Soesterberg, The Netherlands, amongst more aviation art by Wiek Luijken, John Wallin and myself. For the three of us this is our first exhibition, and needless to say we're very proud of this milestone in our aviation art careers! Many thanks to Wiek and the museum for making this possible. The expo will run until June.

PS. Congratulations on two years of Let-Let-Let! :-ok

Ooooo look a new forum! But the art looks familiar ;)
Will you do a camouflaged one once?

O have a look here...
I recommended the Yugoslavian Do Y to this guy as a modelling subject and he is doing a really good job recreating it in 3D. I wish I had the time to do it myself, but too busy with other stuff :(
