Going on sale Friday Oct. 4 at http://battlegroundstudio.storenvy.com/ is this exquisite framed set which has an original piece (with original winter paint still on it) from the wreck of Bf 109G-6 WNr.20792 of 4./JG 27, coded weiße 11 + –
Uffz. Hans Markgraf, WIA 11.Dec. 1943 in Luftkampf. That plane crashed right outside the village of Niebert, Holland. This information is reinforced in this fascinating article http://franckruffino.chez.com/My-Site/B-17%2042-30667.htm
The set also includes a fine reproduction of the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross. Created for the serious collector, it is much more than a conversation piece, it’s a ” PIECE OF HISTORY”.
Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation was formed on 17 March 1943 as a merger of Consolidated Aircraft and Vultee Aircraft. Approached in 1939 to become a second manufacturer for the B-17 Flying Fortress, Consolidated instead developed the B-24 Liverator heavy bomber, which was arguably superior to the B-17. Several Years ago I purchased this piece of a B24 which I was told crashed in Alaska during WW2. No other details were given. After much consideration I decided to create artwork using the piece in the photo above. I will have more details soon. Stay tuned -Will
Just like the previous box set, this one also includes a piece of a JG54 FW190 recovered in 2009 in Latvia Not only does that piece still have a good amount of its original paint on it, attached to it is a 4 Prong plug with an outstanding looking Busch & Jaeger logo embossed on it. The set is completed with a “BATTLEGROUND STUDIO made” FW190 cowling featuring the JG54 crest. The first set was sold as soon as it was posted on the store. I believe this one will go just as fast. This Limited Edition shadow box set will be available for sale on Tuesday Sept. 10 at 8am. DON’T MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY!
I’m extremely pleased to partner with the ever growing Risk Takers http://www.wearerisktakers.com/ on a very Limited Edition framed panel. Depicting RT’s Tiny as nose art on a P40 cowling makes this art piece the perfect collab. Going on sale August 22. on the battlegroundstudio.storenvy.com
Fw190, BF109G pieces of wrecks. A fair amount of original paint can be seen on those pieces. RLM76, 74, 75 and some hand painted red stripes on the Fw190 in the foreground. This one will be mounted next to a cowling panel painted in a winter scheme (Latvia 1944). Stay tuned.
Once again this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of history. I will be creating a single edition of a one of a kind Mustang panels and mounting an actual fuel cap from that aircraft long side. Though I do not have a story behind this piece, I still think it is unique and as you can see it has the original red paint on it. It looks as it has seen its share of skies, if you know what I mean. I will post photos of the art in progress. Stay tuned
Recently I was able to get my hands on pieces of wreckage from crashed Fw190 and BF109G planes. What makes those more interesting is the fact that I also have the stories behind the crashes. SO, I decided to offer the collectors a very unique chance to own one of those pieces . The final result is a very nice shadow box which houses a small panel on one side and the wreck piece on the other. Box measures 15x12x3. in all honesty IT IS ONE OF THE NICEST PRESENTATION I’VE EVER FABRICATED? The first set I made (photo above) sold immediately and I believe the same will happen with the next framed art pieces I will post. Stay tuned in the next few weeks as I have some one of a kind offers.
I’m Working on an upcoming new series of German warplanes including the infamous Me109, FW190 and Me163. Here is a sneak peek at the Me109E-1 mini panel. The nose art on those panels will be my own creation without compromising the look and feel of the period art.
Stay tuned for more details.
