Grenada by RadoJavor Grenada by RadoJavor
Today, Ronal Reagan was born exactly 100 years ago.
I got a birthday today also so decided to make small hommage for this occasion. As I like planes and history alot, this picture is showing the Invasion to Grenada, his first military action as an President. Finally I could paint my favourite plane A-7 Corsair.
done in Photoshop in about two evenings.

People Say This Plane is Ugly... Other Say Its Beautiful... Its Not About Looks... Its About Performance and Well-Making. This is the perfect example.

Great piece. Have you thought about doing one of the F-8 Crusader?

Fantastic picture and a fantastic president. As a Canadian I just have to say that in 1980 is was obvious that there was a large amount of self loathing in the USA. It was the gipper that helped United Statsians :) believe in themselves again.

Sadly I think that the late 70s are back again (crappy fassion and all).

For some reason I think the best part is the airbrake. You just don't get to see it too often, and the A-7's got an interesting one.

Lovely work. An acquaintance of mine flew a Corsair out of Yankee Station in the Tonkin Gulf in the early '70s, just before Saigon fell.

Gods I hate you for being so talented! The A-7 was a wonderful machine, and it pleases me to see her so well represented. I would love to see what you would do to the A-10, or the P-38.
