Night Reapers by RadoJavor Night Reapers by RadoJavor
My latest picture, just finished 5 mins ago. I'm long time fan of the obsolete planes used in Vietnam war. So I've decided to paint a something like a hommage to this old workhorses originally build in second world war.
The picture shows two A-26 Invaders going for the night hunt over Vietnam. I spend more time on colour shades and light, trying to learn something new, so hope you'll like it.


If you see some perspective issues. let me know in the comment I can fix that eventually.

Looks like Douglas A-20 Boston. Okay, I can see it's the modification of A-20, but it uses... Piston engines? Not even turbo-jets? Okay, I know that USAF used some old planes such as B-29 during the Vietnam war, but they had turbo-jets there instead of standart motors, because of efficiency. That's the only thing that makes me confused. Picture itself is just beautiful. Nice work.

The USAF never used B-29's (maybe the KB-50 early on as tanker support, but that's unlikely) in Vietnam. They did operate B-26 Invader bombers modernized to the K 'Counter Invader' status as night interdiction aircraft as well as the A-1 Skyraider for CAS work/pilot rescue support

I mean exactly the first period of war. And yeah, sorry for sayng "turbo-jets", I actually mean "turbo-prop" engines (Still learning English, my bad).

No need to apologize about your English. You type it out better than a good portion of native English speakers.

Those are B-25 ground support plane. They where if I remeber right medium or light bombers. The differance is eight Ma duces and some bomb and rocket pods later. The Air Force used them up to. Only a few fligh. Why? you may ask, air frames can only tale so much flying. The samething will happen to the A-10s. Sad. Oh yeah srry for the being so historicly correct. I do this...

Here is a link to the Commemorative Air Force's A-26: [link]
Both had the eight gun nose, but note that the A-26 has one rudder and the B-25 had two:

Wow, I love this picture, I stumbled uon your gallery when looking for a picture of the battle scene in the beginning of the "Hunt for red October"(still looking), Thank You so much, your work is awesome. The fact that these planes look like they have been run hard and put up wet is exactly how I would imagine it. I can't wait to see more. btw I actually had to create an account to post this so kudos

the perspective makes this plane really intimidating, maybe more intimidating than seeing it in real life.

The lead plane has a real sense of coming right out of the frame. And yes, it does look beat up, but as lethal as ever

Love it! I finished building my own ZBrushed 3D digital B-26 Marauder for an original crew member of the ship from WWII and have been making renders for him. The Invader started being called the B-26 as well after the Marauder was discontinued.

Hellyeah, I love those planes too, they're so crude and get the job done. In my opinion those older workhorse-planes were the most awesome machines.

It's rare to see an A-26 used as a subject. The B-17's. B-25's and the fighters usually got all the glory from the artists. Excellent job

slight perspective issue with the body of the plane, it looks like its on the same perspective line as the engine to the left rather than between the two. the only fault though, as with all your work, its insanely brilliant. you are a genius with a wacom!
