ONE LAST MISSION
It's early February 1943. We've been on duty for King and Country on and off since 1941. The bloody war keeps going on. Seems there is no stop to it. Luckily this mission will be the last one for me and the lads. There is not much to come back to. Our house in Kent was bombed to smithereens during The Blitz. Not much work options either.
One of the blokes says he's going for Asia to fight The Japs after this tour. Me, I've had more than my share of war. Thinking of moving to Ireland. They've had the sense to keep out of the bloody thing.
Anyhow, the Huns are seemingly awake and alert. Thee German Fighters are zooming head on through our formation, throwing whatever they have on us. The flak is so dense and thick, you can take a stroll upon it.
Hopefully, I'll be back after this sortie for a pint at the pub. Otherwise I'll be eating sauerkraut behind barbed wire for some time ahead. Please say hello to Annie, and tell her not to loose hope on us. I'm not shot out of the sky yet.

For this image, I've used solely 3D models from sharecg.com and the creator Neil Wilson. For the flak barrages I've used "Jepe's smoke". The flak streaks were included in the Lancaster set by Neil. I also tried to blend a color image and a duplex using layers in Photoshop. Also added a grunge background in the layers, fiddling around with opacity to get "a vintage look". I'm adding both the original color image and the grunge one here.

Looks great! Yeah Neil Wilson did a bunch of amazing models and gave them away for free! What a pity, he died a few years ago.

Thank you. I am amazed at the details of Neils models. They could've been sold for lots of money. Didn't know he had passd away though... truly a pity.
