Those don't count.  Just reprints of old images.  I'm hoping for something new.

Since this was from Military Gallery, and they have a long history of releasing prints on the anniversaries of battles (especially for the Battle of Britain), I think there's a good chance we'll see something from RT.

Peter on New Simon Smith Dambuster Painting http://ehangar.com/forum/collecting-aviation-art/new-simon-smith-dambuster-painting#p55222 Collecting Aviation Art http://ehangar.com/forum/collecting-aviation-art/new-simon-smith-dambuster-painting#p55222 I do love paintings which have people in them together with their planes. This reminds me a little of Mark Postlethwaite's Veterans print.

I have seen an original of Simons work hanging in a display at Cosford a few years back. It was so much better in the flesh than the print (Sorry, I do forget which one it was). Magnificent to be honest.

The only issue I have with this, and I'm guessing it could just be the reproduction here, is the faces of the characters in the foreground look a little cartoonish in their colour and the figures almost look as if they have been superimposed onto the painting of the Lancaster. Compare them to the guys behind, under the wing who to me look more realistic and their colours are subdued like the rest of the painting ?

Is it just me ? As I say, it could just be the effect of this shrunken picture !

But the amount of work and detail that has gone into the characters looks impressive.

Pete

I have liked Simon Smith's work for a long time.

As I was looking hard at the painting, I could imagine the sense tense excitement the crew milling around must have felt before the operation.

fuzzy on New John Shaw Print "Reno Gold" http://ehangar.com/forum/collecting-aviation-art/new-john-shaw-print-reno-gold#p55191 Collecting Aviation Art http://ehangar.com/forum/collecting-aviation-art/new-john-shaw-print-reno-gold#p55191 A great aviation art subject - Reno racing. 

John Shaw "Reno Gold":

 

For the last 50 years, Reno race fans have been thrilled to the sounds and sights of highly tuned engines thundering overhead.
There is perhaps nothing that stirs the emotions more than seeing a pack of Unlimiteds heading for the home pylon.  It is the fastest sport in the world and if speed is what you need, here it is at 50ft altitude with speeds clocking in excess of 500 m.p.h.
John Shaw's magnificent masterpiece traces the great Unlimited racers of the past half century. From Pond Racer, Conquest 1, and Smirnoff, to the modern duels between Strega, Rare Bear, and Voodoo.  These great war birds festooned in colorful paint jobs, were flown by equally colorful pilots that bought man and machine together in perfect harmony. It takes great courage and skills of precision to fly at such speeds in close proximity.
Published jointly by Liberty Studios and Wings Fine Arts, the editions are as follows.  Prints are published on acid free paper and overall size is:  38" x 23".
 

Editions Available 

  • Unlimited Edition: Open, available now. ($95)
  • Limited Edition (call to reserve): Signed by Ten (10) Unlimited Pilots (to be released Summer 2015). 950 s/n prints ($275). Available soon. 
  • Artist Proof (call to reserve): Signed by Twenty (20) Unlimited Pilots (to be released Summer 2015). 150 s/n prints ($375). Available soon.
  • The GOLD Edition (call to reserve): Signed by Fifty (50) Unlimited Pilots (to be released Summer 2015). 650 s/n prints ($595). Available soon.
  • The GICLEE Canvas Edition: Beautiful large work with breathtaking colours, 60" x 30". 100 prints, available now! ($1400)

SPECIAL NOTES:  

 
The Open Edition and Giclee Edition are available now.  Collectors can reserve their print number now for a deposit of $50 in the Limited Edition, Artist Proofs, and Gold Editions. We are excited to be collecting signatures in these editions and the project will be completed in the Summer.
 
So far the Gold Edition has the following signatures of past Unlimited winners and over the coming weeks we hope to add a few more:
  • BILL "TIGER" DESTEFANI (9 WINS)
  • DARRYL GREENAMYER (7 WINS)
  • STEVE HINTON Jnr (6 WINS)
  • "SKIP" HOLM (6 WINS)   
  • RON HEVLE (2 WINS)
  • BRUCE LOCKWOOD (2 WINS)
  • CHUCK LYFORD (2 WINS)
  • STEVE HINTON Snr (2 WINS)

eHangar on "The Dambusters - Three Good Bounces" by Robert Taylor http://ehangar.com/forum/collecting-aviation-art/the-dambusters-three-good-bounces-by-robert-taylor#p55174 Collecting Aviation Art http://ehangar.com/forum/collecting-aviation-art/the-dambusters-three-good-bounces-by-robert-taylor#p55174 I don't think her signature will add to or detract anything from the value of the print. Her role in the raid is an interesting 'aside' and historical footnote. 

Arguably, if she had not been skipping stones with her dad, would Dr Barnes Wallis ever have had the "Eureka" moment that led to the development of the dambuster bomb? think
