Heres my favourite Robert Taylor pencil drawing that i own, the image was used in one of his “Air Combat Paintings” books. Its titled “Move In The Armourers”….Biggin Hill August 1941. It has been signed by 6 BoB pilots and also has Johnnie Johnsons signature included within the framing. Its also special to me as i only live a couple of miles from Biggin Hill.


Last weekend when i was at the BoB event at AH, i comissioned a Richard Taylor original pencil drawing, it will be based on the B17 “Memphis Belle”. I will have it framed to included a photo of the crew in front of the “Belle” and also a signed title page from Robert Morgans autobiography.

“Move In The Armourers”….super drawing I am not sure about the prop though it just does not look right.

Your Memphis Belle drawing will it be released as a print?

Interesting point.

The scene depicted is 1941 but the propeller and spinner look to date back to 1938 or so (Spit MKI). The spinner is small and the prop double not triple bladed.

Good catch

The Spit is three bladed. Look at the armourer on his knees, blade number two goes toward him. Third blade would be hidden behind fuse. Bob

Prop feels funny to me as well as the horizontal stabilizer…..something doees not feel right. Got a model spit somewhere in a box….might have to dig it out and try to match the view??? Looks like a VERY wide angle on the aircraft. I like the overall look of it though. Pencil gives such a nice organic look to it. Easy but NOT easy at the same time.

I think the prop that is pionting up sould be pionted up more by the attachment spot he is using on the spinner. Bob

RThas,

Is that an original sketch (not a print)? Very nice!

The horizontal tail looks a bit different because the elevator is all the way down. I’d have to put together a model to see about the prop, but I’ve seen models in pictures of Taylor’s studio, and I’ll bet it’s proper (pun intended). I love it!

How much are you paying for the Memphis Belle commission out of interest.

RThasemptiedmywallet, I don’t think this name is accurate for you, otherwise how could you commission RT to do a pencil sketch ❗ ❓

How about changing it to: IKeepEmptyingMyWalletOutOnRT? lol

Totally agree,

I love pencil work more than most paintings. I would hope we will see a RT pencil drawing book soon, they really are worth a book on their own. In his last book a section was dedicated to his pencil drawings so I hope this is a step towards a book full of his pencil drawings.

Wade, I’m not too aware of RG Smith’s pencil drawings but the one you have posted is stunning, is there more posted somewhere?

Nice drawing with great signatures. I do wonder why he chose to draw an E instead of a later G model. Hartman never flew an Emil in combat. Bob
