Aviation art: PC12, Metro, 'Old Red'

Santa brought me a new artist smock and beret. Here is what I've been up to.

All are acrylic on stretched canvas.


WA Police PC12 over Karratha 40cm x 50cm


RFDS PC12 30cm x 60cm


RFDS PC12 40cm x 50cm


Toll Metro dawn departure R/W 16r Sydney


HEEY !!!! How did THAT get in here? "Would the owner of a red E-Type,please move your vehicle. This is an aviation post ONLY"
(Lowers voice to whisper....actually it is owned by a Pprunner. He'll be along shortly. Let's watch.)

Two things with the metro.

It's way too good to be a Toll Metro

You've got to put the red arc in the propeller disk.

I Still love the metro. She is one of a kind

Just googled the name on the bottom of those painting and found you're in the next suburb to me. Might have to visit the Manly markets this Sunday with some of my birthday money

Hey, do a Cathay A330 with Melbourne in the background and I think I know a few guys/girls that might buy a few.

Wally. The 1993 XJ40 was probably the first and last of the great Jag sedans, after Jaguar sold out to BLMC in 1967.

The XJ40 was built by Ford, transmission and steering by ZF of Germany.

Electrics by Joseph Lucas, Price of Darkness!

The E Type is a 1966 Series 1 DOHC 6 cylinder 4.2 lit.

No criticism of the art work, good stuff, but if that Toll Metro is departing from SYD R/W 16R as per your description, can you paint a CASA infringement notice for not following the SID requirement to 'Not Turn Left', to hang next to the painting.

AS you are slipping mate, no aileron deflection on the PC12 in that landing, or was the pilot caught by surprise in a nasty stormy gust

Prolly one of "morno's" landings

Now now Jaba, you haven't been out spying on morno's landings of late have you?

Just ask Jamair how hard crosswind landings in PC-12's are, .

He said they were awesome, and some blokes can't fly them properly

Having said that......I have my fair share of shockers, usually right after a pearler

Talking

Speaking of Jags and Lucas electrics:

The Lucas motto: "Get home before dark."

Lucas denies having invented darkness. But they do still have a claim to "sudden, unexpected darkness."

Lucas - inventor of the first intermittent wiper.

Lucas - inventor of the self-dimming headlamp.

The three-position Lucas switch - DIM, FLICKER and OFF.

The other three switch settings - SMOKE, SMOULDER and IGNITE.

The original anti-theft devices - Lucas Electric products.

"I've had a Lucas pacemaker for years and have never experienced any prob...."

If Lucas made guns, wars would not start either.

Did you hear about the Lucas-powered torpedo? It sank.

It's not true that Lucas, in 1947, tried to get Parliament to repeal Ohm's Law. They withdrew their efforts when they met too much resistance.

Did you hear the one about the guy that peeked into a La n d R o v e r and asked the owner, "How can you tell one switch from another at night, since they all look the same?" He replied, "It doesn't matter which one you use, nothing happens anyway!"

Back in the '70s Lucas decided to diversify its product line and began manufacturing vacuum cleaners. It was the only product they offered which didn't suck.

Quality Assurance phoned and advised the Engineering guy that they had trouble with his design shorting out. So he made the wires longer.

Why do the English drink warm beer? Lucas makes refrigerators, too.

Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. Thomas Edison invented the light bulb. Joseph Lucas invented the short circuit.

Recommended procedure before taking on a repair of Lucas equipment: check the position of the stars, kill a chicken and walk three times clockwise around your car chanting: "Oh mighty Prince of Darkness protect your unworthy servant."

Lucas systems actually uses AC current; it just has a random frequency.


When taking a comfort stop on the route always walk away from the vehicle down wind at least 100 metres before emptying bladder. This will help alleviate the ingress of moisture into the electrical system and allow you to maybe continue your journey.

Hope this helps, Tailwheel

All the above apply to BAe's fine products as well

To quote the late Humphrey Maltman,

"That sound like an E-type!
Yup. Had a fellow back in the squadron in England had one of those.
Pulled more roots than anyone else....."

It's been a few years since I've flown out of Sydney, but I'm pretty sure that Metro is escaping off 16L.
Nice painting though. (shame about the subject hehehehe)

Runway 16 L and 16R

18- Wheeler::

It appears to be taking off from 16L, unless it did a quick side step from 16 R!

Regards,

Thanks to Ppruners for your comments and compliments. You have warmed my cold,black heart.
Green Goblin. You speak of great wisdom,and I have now amended the painting to include the red arcs on the props. It does look better,thanks



Stevep64. I was amazed when I googled my name,putting 'artist' after it. So much of my world and pictures are out there in cyber world,for all to see.

Nitpicker330. I did a Cathay aircraft a few years ago. Here is a piccy of it. Unfortunately,I only had a Crudmaster Mk1 camera back then,and as I don't have the painting anymore I have had to scan the washed out photo.Please forgive the quality. It is taking off at Hong Kong.



Jaba. I have taken your advice,here is the amended PC12 complete with aileron deflection.



To the others commenting on my left vs right runway....yes,you are all correct. I will now go back to typing with one finger because two makes twice as many errors.

Tailwheel. I have sent you a PM some days ago requesting your postal address to mail you the painting. As I didn't get a reply,shall I just send it care of you parole officer again?
