My vector drawing using Inkscape (no auto trace or copy) of the Blackburn Monoplane type D 1912 on a digital painting using DAP of the skies above our house in Romania.

No image may be reproduced, copied, edited, published, or uploaded without my permission.

Robert Blackburn was one of the British pioneers designing and building airplanes. His first machine to fly successfully from the sands in Filey was in 1910. Several developments followed in the next years and the designs were aerodynamically cleaned up. In February 1913 he built one aeroplane for Cyril Foggin.
The Type D, a wooden, fabric-covered single-seat monoplane powered by a 50 hp (40 kW) Gnome rotary engine, was built for Cyril Foggin in 1912.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:
