This image takes it`s inspiration from the 1969 film The Battle of Britian, and composed in 16 – 9 widescreen. A 12 layer work with Photoshop

It is 1940, and the diabolical mind of Adolf Hitler is planning to bomb England into submission to his warped dreams of a ‘Fortress Europe’. Standing between Britain’s freedom & Hitler’s terrifying plans is the R.A.F – dedicated pilots who took to the skies again & again in the face of overwhelming odds. The German Luftwaffe’s planes outnumber the R.A.F’s by more than 2 to 1 – 650 planes of the R.A.F. vs. 2,500 of the Luftwaffe! These odds. however, do not deplete the determination of the R.A.F. to stop Hitler, and as the Luftwaffe launches wave after wave of Heinkel 111 bombers against British cities, the R.A.F. responds, under the leadership of Air Vice Marshal Park (Howard) and Squadron Leaders Canfield (Caine) and Harvey (Plummer) who lead the newest pilots of the R.A.F. into confrontation after confrontation with the Luftwaffe’s experienced veterans, with the aim of driving Hitler’s forces away from Dover’s white cliffs for good.

    That is very cool Mr!, great image, don’t know if I told you, years ago I worked on the Airfix brochure, I got to see a lot of the old box art, the original paintings, long after the was when we lost the plot and all became PC the images were retouched to remove all the bullets and explosions, all the little nicks in the planes, all the traces of bullets pinging across the ocean, they were a masterpiece and we made them lame. shame, coz now they are just in my memory.

  • There was recently a T.V. programme called James May`s toys, anfd they were talking about Airfix Kits, and they met the Artist who drew the images for the boxes. He said the same thing about taming down the art. As I made most of the kits when a child, I agree with you Ken !!

    Another corker Colin,
    Well composed and I love the choice of sky. Spit in wrong colour scheme for BofB but who cares!!!LOL
    Cheers Neil

  • The Spit I know is a later mark than was around in the Battle of Britain, and The Me109 shown, is a G version, while in the B.B. the version was an E, as you say, who cares !!! LOL !!
