I love the look on pilot R.H.Mcintosh’s face. One of my favourite images found when researching Cricklewood Aerodrome.

Laser cut stencil sheets are go!  So much easier than making out the whole thing by hand… I hope.  Photo of artist, Alistair Lambert
Still tweaking the colours layout. It’s so much easier digitally than in the real world.
