Starstrutter by RadoJavor Starstrutter by RadoJavor
As promised, one interesting wwI plane. I paint it because I really like the unusual design. Its an austria-hungarian figter nicknamed Starstrutter or flying coffin:)
Second thing is that Im coming from the same city as the pilot of this plane. He was the best pilot from hungary in wwI. On the picture he is defending the port on adriatic against Italian bombers.

Technically, I had a 3d model done by my friend which was used for basic perspective. Rest is painting in photoshop with a big help from custrom brushes done by other frined. But generally I went to sligtly different and more dramatic style. So dont know if it was succesfull, you can tell me how you like it. Or dislike:)

Very cool! Great action. There seems to have been more than a few aircraft in aviation history that sported the name "Flying Coffin", the United States had a few.
