xx Buccaneer Paintings
« Thread started on: Mar 16th, 2008, 3:23pm »

I am making this topic a sticky so that it can be found easily.

Over the last few months, I have received a few requests about adding paintings to the website, so without further ado, I will add two here that have just been given to the society.

This first one was undertaken by one of the volunteers from the Britannia Society and deplicts a fully bombed S.2B, the painting has been done on canvas and is totally freehand.

This second one was undertaken by Gary Saunt, who unfortunately has not given me an address to respond to, but nevertheless, its an awesome piece of artwork and deplicts XV168 at low level.
In Gary's own words "I am producing a set of aviation paintings along the theme of Even Aircraft Dream.
This imagines what the aircraft themselves would fanticise about - if they could. In the Bucc's case I suspect being let loose in a soviet anchorage would be near the mark....?"

Yes please Nige, that would be great, probably best use a new topic as I can see quite a few of these turning up.

Thanks for the welcome, no need to worry about the redirector, I have managed to sort that out through the Plesk 7.5.

Came across the paintings thread here, so thought I'd add another. Apologies for the background setting not being your typical place associated with the Bucc. Did this one earlier in the year for a Stockport exhibition with the theme being 'Aviation in the North-West'. Always fancied painting a Bucc, though, so I was very pleased to find out that they carried out the avionics upgrade programme on them at Woodford in the eighties. I titled it 'New lease of life'. Critical comments very welcome as it's not to late for alterations. Cheers, Bob.

That is absolutely superb Bob, think you may find that there would quite a few orders coming in for this if you did a run of prints from it.

Bob

Have put this on the website, can you let me know how you want appropriate credits added.

Also can set up an e-mail account if you wish to receive "orders" for the print grin

Just out of interest Bob, which jet (serial no.) have you based the picture on?

Thanks for the very generous comments, gents.
Hadn't fully researched printing, but will look into it.
Plazz, the image relies on more than a fair amount of 'artistic licence' as there wasn't info available about exact weather conditions and departure style of specific airframes. For that reason, the tail numbers are only partly legible, making it 'representative' of a number of possible airframes (eg XW547).
Andy White provided some very helpful inputs, especially about control surfaces and markings. Shaun O'Connor, who was working at Woodford at the time and David Herriot also provided very helpful input so I'm grateful to all of them.
There was some concern that the Bump stop/Tail skid should retract with the undercarriage, but after watching several video sequences, there looked to be a delay between the two, so I left it down.
Squadron markings were another concern, but it was deemed likely they were not removed.
If anyone can provide any more accurate input regarding these or any other issues, then I'd be very pleased to hear from them as, like I say, it is not too late for alterations.
Cheers and thanks, Bob.
