Mike Maddi’s Kong Kit: in-progress shots!   Leave a comment

Holy Cow!  Mike’s work is just incredible.  It looks like I’ll be helping him out with the decals for the Tophatter biplanes – a big thank you to the Vintage Aviator, LTD. (the New Zealand company who built the prop planes for the latest King Kong movie) for the reference photos.

You can see more of Mike’s incredible resin kits here.

HSC-85 art drafts   Leave a comment

The ‘High Rollers’ of HSC-85 were transitioning into more of a Special Operations support role.  Their name was changing from ‘High Rollers’ and they wanted an update to their emblem (which was oriented toward gambling).  At the time, they were thinking of the name ‘Phoenix’ to reflect the squadron’s heritage doing firefighting support work.  I was invited to submit some ideas for an emblem.

Ultimately my designs were not chosen, but if you know anyone with HSC-85 or any squadron having a phoenix or firehawk-themed unit mascot who could like the looks of this art, please let me know.

You can see the selected design on the HSC-85 Wikipedia page here.

Squadron Store: The last HMM-166 (REIN) artwork…   4 comments

HMM-166(REIN) CH-46E retirement artwork

With HMM-166 transitioning to VMM-166 the venerable CH-46E is getting retired in favor of the new MV-22 tiltrotor aircraft.  When I thought about a poster image to honor the Marines and families linked to the unit, I wanted to do something that would work virtually anywhere (kitchen, den, kids room, man cave, etc), something timeless.  I’ve had an old French float plane poster for over a decade and it never gets old.  The colors and motion were really inspirational.   You can get the HMM-166(REIN) version as a framed print (and on lots of other products) via the HMM-166 Squadron Store site – which will transition to benefit the new squadron.  This piece represents my last bit of HMM-166 artwork.  It’s a great gift for your favorite Sea Elk/CH-46 fan and/or a friend who was involved with the other rotary wing or Harrier aircraft that were part of HMM-166(REIN).  Get yours here and tell your friends so they’ll buy ’em too!  Help VMM-166 feel welcome – the majority of SquadronStore proceeds from the sale will benefit their Officers’ Wives’ Club!
