Aviation Art – part 2

In the last post about what aviation art is, I wrote a few words about it. But there are other points I would like to highlight here. In order – what would be necessary to be an aviation artist or which areas could him or her work with. First let me tell few words regarding…

What is Aviation Art?

Aviation Art is one of the multiples division of the art, but focused in flying objects such as aircraft, spaceship, dirigible, rockets,…and no matter what medium is used to elaborate the art. It is more than that. It is a real specific division of the art that is appreciate by few and for the artists…

Heinkel He 343

He 343A-1, which was to be the bomber version. Depending on the engines used, the bomb load ranged between 2000 kg to 3000 kg, with 2000 kg to be carried internally, and 1000 kg to be carried externally. Trials were to be held with the Fritz X radio controlled bomb, which would have also added…

BAC Mustard

The Multi-Unit Space Transport And Recovery Device or MUSTARD, usually written as Mustard, was a concept explored by the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC) during the mid-1960s for launching payloads weighing as much as 2,300 kg (5,000 lb) into orbit. Operating as a multi-stage rocket for launch, the individual stages were near-identical modules, each flying back to land as a spaceplane. Mustard was a modular re-usable space…

Blohm und Voss BV P202

The Blohm & Voss P 202 was an unusual design study for a variable-geometry jet fighter during World War II. It was the first design to incorporate a slewed wing (also known as an oblique or scissor wing) in which one side swept forward and the other back. This 1944 Richard Vogt’s design was powered by two…

FMA I.A.36 Condor II - AVIATION ART

I.A. 36 Cóndor II

The I.A. 36 Cóndor II was projected as a passenger transport aircraft by Kurt Tank. It was designed in Argentina within the Military Aircraft Factory in the early 1950s. The project was canceled by the government of dictator Pedro Eugenio Aramburu, during the era known as Revolution Libertadora in 1958. The project had five turbines in…

slewed wing

An oblique wing (also called a slewed wing) is a variable geometry wing concept. On an aircraft so equipped, the wing is designed to rotate on center pivot, so that one tip is swept forward while the opposite tip is swept aft. By changing its sweep angle in this way, drag can be reduced at…

Aviation art steps

A recent work I did Here I show few steps. They are divided in 5 steps and the main idea is to show the importance to know the aircraft structure before you start to draw, to paint, to illustrate or generate it in a 3D software. Research is really important, as well as some other…

Delta wings

Early deltas Triangular stabilizing fins for rockets were described ca. 1529-1556 by Conrad Haas and in the 17th century by Kazimierz Siemienowicz. The lifting delta wing was pioneered by Alexander Lippisch in Germany after WWI, initially using a very gentle angle so that the wing appeared almost straight. He flew the first tailless delta aircraft…

Variable-sweep wing

A variable-sweep wing, colloquially known as a “swing wing”, is an airplane wing, or set of wings, that may be swept back and then returned to its original position during flight. It allows the aircraft’s shape to be modified in flight, and is therefore an example of a variable-geometry aircraft. Typically, a swept wing is…
