Daddy's Girl

Hello folks! This is my first post on the new 12 O'Clock High forum

I just wanted to show you one of my latest artworks, made last summer. I hope you like it.



After I did my first P-51D Mustang image, "Little Friends" over a year ago, I got lots of requests from family of veteran pilots and Mustang owners for similar artwork. In the meantime I have finished a couple and here is the first.

The aircraft depicted was flown by one of the top Mustang aces Captain Ray Wetmore. He named the aircraft after his first daughter and went on to score over 22 kills against the German Luftwaffe. Sadly Wetmore died in a flying accident in 1951.

This artwork was made for his daughters and son, as well as the owner of a restored Mustang which flies in the exact colours of Wetmore's Daddy's Girl.

Here is a side profile of Daddy's Girl:




I wish you the very best for 2006!

Beautiful work, there was a server problem the day I tried to answer and afterwards I lost track, but thanks to Brian it got a well deserved bump!!

But you must already know that I am one of your fans

Thanks Ruy!

Is this the right place to post such things or would you prefer me to post them elsewhere?

Re: Daddy's Girl

Hello Pilot Glad you like it!

My Corsair is still work-in-progress but it is coming along well. Details to add are the engine, cockpit, tailwheel and some smaller bits and bobs. And of course the camouflage!
