Most impressive collection of Aviation artwork I have ever seen, BRAVO! Love to see you takes on the USAF Century Series Fighters (F100, F101, F104, F-102 and F-106) My Father was part of the 60th FIS at OTIS AFB in the early 60's. At that Time the 60th was flying the F-101B. Also like to see the F7F Tigercat.

Your artwork on the Hercules C-130 series is amazing great.

I wonder? Have you seen the Harrison Ford movie 'Air Force One'? (1997)

Ford played the President of the US, after getting on a C-130 Hercules that attempted a mid-air rescue, the pilot said: "Liberty 24 is changing call signs, Liberty 24 is now Air Force One." So the C-130 Hercules became Air Force One. I wonder just out of fantasy, what would a Hercules look like if painted in the official blue and white colours of the proper Air Force One 747?

Great, take your time, and hope if you've done it, would be cool to see what the Hercules look as Air Force One.
