Soviet Steel Train Lost by Marii Chernev

eHangar.com Aviation Art Soviet Steel Train Lost by Marii Chernev

The German Henschel Hs-129 is not often depicted in aviation art. Marii Chernev’s painting, titled “Soviet Steel Train Lost”, is a welcome addition to the very small stable of aviation art featuring this ungainly aircraft.

The German Henschel Hs-129 was a single-seater twin-engine attack aircraft built for combat against tanks and armored trains.

Despite the plane’s shortcomings, the Luftwaffe desperately needed aircraft for the assault of 1940, and in the winter of 1940, Henschel received an order for a series of Hs-129 planes. With the occupation of France, a large number of Gnome-Rhone 14M engines were confiscated, each running at 700 hp. Experiments with installing more powerful (albeit unreliable) engines led to the creation of the Hs-129B, which had superior specs to the original Hs-129 and could return all the way to base if forced to fly with only one engine.

What’s My Aviation Art Print Worth???!!!

If we received 10 cents every time this question is asked on eHangar.com, we would be able to pay for hosting forever! 😉

This is probably one of the most frequently-asked questions in our forum, and usually asked by someone who is not  an aviation art collector. And to help everyone answer this question, I am featuring a very good reply made by one of our long-time members and serious aviation art collector, fuzzy, who is also a forum moderator.

Let The Fuzz give you the Buzz 🙂 (ok, fuzzy, lame-o attempt at some punny humor, but at least it rhymes!)

We’re BACK! Everything looks normal (I hope…!)

We’ve just completed the move to a new server. Its been a nail-biting few days because the IT tech guy I hired did not do the job properlycensoredbrooding, and so I had to do it all by myself, with a bit of guesswork here and there, and much uploading and deleting of files and databases.seestars

It looks like the migration has gone well, with only the latest posts of the past few days missing, I think, including my post announcing the site will be down.

For the members’ whose recent posts might not have been backed up and restored properly, I apologise and request that you make the posts again.whistle

Thanks everyone for your patience and accommodation. I hope this new server will serve the site well and quickly too. pilotfly

As always, please post in the feedback section if you spot anything amiss or have suggestions to improve the site, our community.teach

Cheers
