The Six by markkarvon The Six by markkarvon
The F-106 Delta Dart. An airplane that served long and well. Universally loved by all who flew her. An F-106 still holds the official speed record for a single jet engined aircraft. This piece is 20" x 24".

Edit - Changed markings to 5th FG.

i think its the lighting that gets me, also the very crispy detailing. thats an extremely difficult angle to pull off. how do you get the forms right at those angles? id use a 3d model as a basis at least. how do you do it?

Hours of meticulous work - Each painting I do requires at least 40 hours of painting time - minimum.

Years of drafting training and practicing my craft - I learned how to draw with a T-square and angles in Jr. High and Highschool. I followed that with more engineering and drafting studies in college. Learning how perspective and light effects the way shapes are perceived is a must.

Have a good eye, do the research and know how to utilize references to best advantage. Researching each painting and gathering references takes more time than actually creating the painting.

Very nice work. I remember seeing one at an air show at McGuire AFB in 1981. I believe the NJANG was flying them at the time.
