Another in my ‘Aviabstraction’ series from a boneyard in California. I was looking at the image I had of the X-2 and was reminded of the vision, creativity and ultimately the ‘right stuff’ of test pilots.

I began with a section of a cockpit image and created a retro type ‘pod’ on a mission unknown… So who dwells within?

The final image is 7000+ pixels wide and every rivet is pin sharp.

    I’m thinking of star trek here – or is it star wars? Captivating image Peter!

  • Thanks Trish… Is a coincidence you mention those films, I was subconciously drawing on that feel plus an old sci fi film from the early 1940’s hence the retro influence. The white is definitely a starwars thang, the background is a montage of intake ducts from an aircraft wing.
