I thought since I haven't been finishing any colored profiles recently, I would post up some of the collaborations I've been doing with my friend Logan recently. We're coming off two successive Group Build wins with these.

(It's big, beware.)


By 1938, it was becoming clear that, given the same engine, the Heinkel He 100 would out-perform the Messerschmitt Bf 109 in maximum speed, range, and altitude. As a result, the Reichsluftfahrtministerium decided to get the most out of the limited supply of Daimler-Benz DB 601 engines available. Priority was given to the He 100 while Messerschmitt received the balance. The Heinkel He 100D soon entered full-scale production, the first units receiving their aircraft in early 1939. By spring of 1940, the Bf 109 remained the backbone of the Jagdwaffe, but the He 100 was quickly replacing it in front line units. By the invasion of France, the He 100 would comprise roughly half of the fighters in Jagdgeschwader stationed on the Western Front. The He 100 cut large swathes through French and British fighters opposing it, making aces out of many of its pilots during the campaign.

One such pilot was the flamboyant Adolf Galland. A veteran of Spain, Galland mentored under fellow Condor Legion veteran and accomplished ace Werner M

After its rejection by the RLM, the He 100 became the focus of an intense propaganda campaign designed to deceive the Allies into believing the He 100 was in service with the Luftwaffe. Largely successful, this effort culminated in the famous April 1940 article of Der Adler. No fewer than nine He 100s were painted in spurious "lightning bolt" markings and lined up for the cameras. It wasn't long before these same aircraft were repainted with a shield bearing a bicorn hat stuck on a dagger, an apparent stab at Winston Churchill, the former First Lord of the Admiralty. Finally, at least one aircraft was painted with a moon-man marking and photographed in an apparent night-fighting role.

When its services as a propaganda tool were concluded, a number of these He 100s were added to Heinkel's semi-private factory defense force, manned by Heinkel company pilots. Sometime after these aircraft were taken on for use in this role, the 'First Lord of the Admiralty' badges were repainted with a griffin, the traditional coat of arms of Rostock, where the Heinkel plant was located. This can be seen in an aerial shot of the plant taken later in 1940 as published in Erwin Hood's fantastic book on the He 100. It is one of these aircraft that is depicted in the profile.

Oh kickass. Have you considered something like the Blohm und Voss P.215? That would look awesome!

Nah, we're trying to stay away from the Luftwaffe '46 designs. Way too over-hyped in our opinion.

We do have at least one other German design planned, the He 280, as well as several American bombers.

It's a production version of the real life P-61E, which was the day fighter the F-15 Reporter was based on. :wink:

Over the past couple months Logan and I have been working on a lot of stuff for group builds and such. Here are some of them that I thought you guys might like to see. Full-size pics and the backstories are on the Deviantart links.

I've been busy doing up a new profile subject with Logan over on Beyond the Sprues for the Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda Group Build, so I haven't posted much here recently. While we are on the final stretch for that, I thought I would post a size comp I did of a lot of the aircraft I've drawn recently or been fiddling with, minus a few redacted planes for now.
