By now, they would have launched the F8F's to kill the newer Japanese planes.

The George, one of the few late-war Japanese fighters capable of fighting advanced American fighters face-to-face.

Mitsubishi A6M ZERO. The first aircraft that stressed maneuverability.

Great details one the fighter. The effects and rendering on the image is sweet too.
I've been thinking about doing work on the pacific war for a while. Since it was so close to home.

Thank you for many comments!
Of course I hate all wars,
while I feel something attractive from military airplanes.

I agree completely! I detest war and violence, but I find warplanes to be fascinating and even beautiful machines.

Best Regards,

I feel sorry for Hellcat. I bear no malice, rather love F6F...

That's brilliant, GREAT rendering of the plane and everything.
I'm doing a quite similar piece myself, but from a different angle and an American plane instead.
