Hi To everyone here on the ATF,

Over that last couple of years a lot of you have been very kind and supportive of the work that I have done with the Airfix brand. In this time I have has several requests as to ' is there any artwork for sale' and have always indicate that in the near future some would become available.

Since the start of the year I have been setting up a new Company which now sells aviation artwork in from aviation classics magazine.

We have produced a series of artworks that have been published in the magazine and are now available to purchase. Classic aircraft such as the F86 sabre, mosquito and harrier have been faithfully reproduced in new artworks . Over the next year there will be further artworks added every two months on some of aviation's most famous aircraft.

Our Prints are A2 in size - ( 59.4 x 42 cm - 23.4 x 16.5 inches) in size. The Prints are on a heavyweight 285 gsm cotton based fine art paper printed with a 12 colour process for a flawless reproduction. Each print is limited to 1000 and are individually numbered by myself.

The new company is called finest hour art and can be found at http://www.finesthourart.com

The Prints cost from £39.95 with £5.95 P & P. We ship worldwide and their is the option to pay via RBS worldpay or if you prefer to send a cheque there's downloadable PDF that can be printed off and sent vis the post.

Below is a couple of  examples of the artworks created.

We value all feedback and comments so please feel free to do so in this thread.


Many thanks

Adam tooby and Nicola you

Is it the left tank as you look at it? I thought the tanks only had one fin, on the outside?

Fantastic pictures -as always!


Cheers!

As of the end of September there will be two more prints available both on the wonderful F4U Corsair - I'll post further details once they are completed. If anyone has any further question please just ask - I am planning in the very near future the Lancaster, spitfire, 109E -Fand G variants along with the Stuka and some more of the uncommon subjects.

all the best,

Adam

Having seen Adam's print work up close and in person I can say the detail and finish is incredible, if you are after an aviation print I would heartily recommend these  :D .

Tornado is on my hit list with quite a few others! I have a low level desert attack in mind for that one....

Here's a close up of a section of one of the artworks....
