P-51 Flying Cadillacs by Jacklionheart P-51 Flying Cadillacs by Jacklionheart
The Mustang was always one of of my favorite warbirds of all time. I think the "Razorback" B model with the Malcolm hood is the most beautifull version of this famous airplane.

Some Mustangs are still flying today, if you ever have seen them in the air, heard the mighty Rollce Royce engines, you will never forget that moment.

Inspired by aviation art painters like Robert Taylor or Roy Grinnell I tried to be most historical correct. These are birds of the 357th Fighter Group, the famous "Yoxford Boys". The leading fighter is the P-51 of Cpt. Johnny England crossing the French cost, somewhere in Summer 1944. Will they come back home this time?

Photoshop - no 3D, no cheats - just painting with some references.

I also love very much The Mustang. And the Me 109 too. The two of them are my favourite fighter from the time of World War II. Great work!

Yeah, as a German artist with U.S. roots, I read a lot about the war over the channel. There were some outstanding stories. I try to paint some of that stuff so people may not forget that they all died for our freedom.

I read both sides, because I have old WW2 journals from both my mother and father's sides of the war. with a name like Muhlbauer there's only so much time before you find the name you don't want to find. especially in Germany, where I live.
