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

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...
