The final image of this painting...

Please click on the image for a larger version. Right click to save it. (Please do show your friends...thanks.)

I don't have a name for this painting yet but I'm open to suggestions. This is a depiction of CP-107 Argus Mark 1, 10712, in 407 "Demons" markings and Warm Yellow propeller spinners. There is a Winged Trident on the tail of this aircraft (the Squadron markings). The real aircraft is on display at 19 Wing, Comox, BC. It is 18" by 30" on 1/4" MDF. This piece was painted with Golden professional grade artist's Acrylics. The background was done in the new "Open" line, which has a longer drying time to permit improved wet-in-wet blending techniques. It also has a nice warming glaze applied to enhance color depth and quality. The aircraft was drawn over the top of the background (as usual) and painted in the regular Golden Acrylics. I hope you like it.

Like most of my art, this painting is available for sale. I ship worldwide. E-mail for a quote. Thanks.

Canadair Argus for Microsoft Flight Sim FS2004?

I've always dreamed about having the CP-107 for Microsoft's Flight Simulator 2004. It never I made one! It has accurate R-3350 sounds ( accurate as I can find), animated split-fowler flaps, fully animated gear, opening Weapons Bays...and it only took thousands of hours to make! was fun...and now I should live in a Rubber Room!
