Fantastic. I love the way the P40 pilot is trying to stay 'Eyes on' with the 109. I read that the pilots of the P40 were warned to only do flying runs at planes like the 109 or Zero because of issues with the P40's dogfighting capability. The P40 was a fantastic ground support plane though and a lot of pilots were very successful with the aircraft. I think it's a beautiful aircraft and you have captured it in its element really well.Clap

Actually, from what I've read, the P-40 could outrun but not out-turn a Zero, and it could out-turn but not out-run a 109.  They were also very ruggedly built, making them dangerous in a fight at low or mid altitude.

Świetne!
Mam tylko pewne obiekcje co do spotkania tych samolotów - P-40N sądząc po oznaczeniu należy do 75Sq RAAF walczącego na Pacyfiku, a Bf 109 F-2 to samolot którym latał Hannes Trautloft z JG54 na Froncie Wschodnim. Raczej mało realne jest spotkanie bojowe tych samolotów ;).
Nie zmienia to mojego uznania dla Twojego artyzmu.

My fave version of the P 40 :D The shark mouth looks so damn cool :D
This could easily be a cover of a model kit or flying games :D
