Have you considered a piece showing the Argentine F4U Corsairs?  2nd Esquadrilla Aeronaval de Combate

Yeah, F4U is a very attractive plane, I want to draw it someday. But now that is still at the investigation stage.

Hmm as someone said years ago, his luck couldn't have been too bad all things considered.

An awesome picture I must say. His body language says something like "Huh. . . that's gonna leave a mark".

Thank you for the joyous comment :)
Yeah, I believe that his life after the war is worthy for him.

No problem. The finnish aces are pretty underappreciated compared to all the other combatants.

Awesome print, only historical inaccuracy here is that the 109 has german markings, not with Finnish swatastikas (Not Related to Nazi-party anyhow btw.)
