    Siły Powietrzne Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej S.Skalski

    Lieutenant pilot Stanisław Skalski in action, 03.09.1939

    The composition of the painting was inspired by one of Piotr Forkasiewicz pictures in the book "Battle of Britain," which shows Ju-88. Thanks so much Piotr.

    That is an unusual angle - almost like I was on a picnic watching a dog fight.

    Nice image and I like the angle! Maybe the lighting could be improved a bit. The grass looks bright and sunny while the planes look a bit dark.

    I don't think the markings of the Henschel are correct, though. The type of cross you used is typically only used on top of the wings.

    Wow, splendid! Great job for faithfully reproducing this!

    I just did a Google for Hs 126 markings and there is a great variety of cross applications on this bird. Some seem definitely outside of any known guideline
