I’ve been photographing aeroplanes since I started drawing aeroplanes. They were primarily as a reference source as I was working on the principle that to draw an aeroplane accurately you need a lot of detail information. Wherever possible I would do a walkaround of an aircraft photographing as much of the airframe as I could, in close up detail, working on the assumption that I might not see that aeroplane in the flesh, or metal, again.
I’ve been asked frequently if I could provide detail photographs of specific aircraft, mainly for modelling projects, so hopefully this section will be a resource of detailed pictures that will be invaluable as a reference for model makers.
I will add walkarounds as and when time is allows, and add photos to existing walkarounds when detail becomes available.
