The original painting is a combination of water color and ink on paper, based on a 3D rendering of my Messerschmitt Me 109 model.
The Messerschmitt Bf 109, often called Me 109, was a German World War II fighter aircraft, designed by Willy Messerschmitt and Robert Lusser during the early to mid-1930s. It was one of the first truly modern fighters of the era, including such features as all-metal monocoque construction, a closed canopy, a retractable landing gear, and powered by a liquid-cooled, inverted-V12 aero engine.
The Bf 109 first saw operational service during the Spanish Civil War, and was still in service at the dawn of the jet age at the end of World War II, during which time it was the backbone of the Luftwaffe’s fighter force.
This particular plane was flown by the Major Franz von Werra.
