Yeah! Those early aviators must have felt like the chosen ones...the gods of the move about seemingly free from the fetters of gravity and the lowly earth...and Zeus-like, to be able to rain thunder and fire down on those small ones below ...heady stuff for earth bound humans. I've done a number of these WW I scenes lately, but this is the first one that cranked my prop enough to post. These cloth and wood babies still make my pulse quicken! A couple of DVI's and a newer DVII struttin' through the god's territory like they belong...Perfect!

Fabric and wood birds by some intrepid modelers in sketchup with some tweaks of my own.

Prop blurs: Neiwil... Thanks Neil!

Different cast: No Poser this time, just Vue 6 Inf and Photoshop for some gamma rays.

Excellent, I absolutely love this! If I might ask, where are the aircraft models from? Many Thanks!

I'm in total awe of this.

It looks like one of those paintings you see at military art galleries from someone like Michael Turner.

Very well done!

Ernst Udet, and men of Jasta 1 'Richtofen's Flying Circus'.Udet paint LO on all his aircraft in honour of his fiancee Eleonore Zink.

This is stunning Bill, you and Vue in perfect harmony....there are some excellent models on Sketchup (and a few stinkers! :-) Hope you'll do some more of these, absolute mustard and a Fave....

Thanks for all your kind comments. Getting some satisfying renders of this subject is near and dear, and I'm planning to do a bit more on the subject. Neil, you never cease to amaze with all your historical knowledge.

That's how it all started! Top marks! I hope they've packed some champagne for the party back at the airfield.
