Rest in Peace Nielwil.
I used Niel's excellent A-10 Warthog model for this traditional "Missing Man" formation. Thank you for your friendship and all the great airplane models, Niel. You will be missed.

Looking at Neil's ShareCG page now. He had some great stuff, and I wish I knew of him before his passing. R.I.P. Neil :(
Always love you stuff. ashamed, they have stopped using the A10. Good old Obama forded the cutback. Due to it's ability to stay over a target for long period of time and higher payload. It was perfect plane to go after terrorist, but of course that is not a priority. We like drones. one missile one kill. of course if more than one we wait for back up. I will get off my soap box now. Song?
DA SALUTE :)
Gorgeous work my friend

Neil was not only a great modeler, he was also extremely generous. He gave his models away freely and also his time, knowledge, and advice. I will miss his creativity, inspiration and especially his humor. He will always be one of those wonderful friends I never met...
I had only heard of Nielwil, but I never knew him or much about his work. I know he was loved and respected here, and I saw some of his modeling and I was always impressed. I'm very sorry for you and everyone else who lost someone dear. You did a beautiful tribute---two of your beloved ladies saluting those beautiful planes which he designed. I'm familiar with the Missing Man Formation, though I've never actually experienced one; and it's very touching that you used that for your remembrance. Your light is exquisite, and the landscape is radiant and deeply honoring. A beautiful tribute, Rod. I'm very sorry for his loss, and I hope he'll live on through all of you, and through all those he loved...your piece radiates with honor, respect and love.
