Into Safety by itifonhom Into Safety by itifonhom
Some Heinkel He-111s of the 3./KG55, under the protection of Me-109s of the famous JG53, return into the safety of the French skies after yet another mission over England on Summer 1940, leaving the sunset behind. The foreground He-111, coded G1+JL with serial number 2149, had some interesting white paintings on the fuselage (I think something common at KG55) and actually made it to the Eastern Front where got lost on 11 July ī41. The other He-111s carry fictional markings, they are too far to identify them anyway. This image marks the start of a new series of artwork for me with the Battle of Britain as itīs main theme, more will come from time to time.
The 3D model of the He-111s comes from Touchwood and itīs a fine model indeed. But, as usual, did a whole new bunch of textures for it, color, spec and bumps, was real fun!
The Me-109 comes from bazze and the texture is one I found somewhere on the net, no idea who did it but itīs nicely done. The background comes from CGTextures and itīs one Iīve used before, really like this one!!
My thanks to rOEN911 for his kind support and great Photoshop tips, used many of them here!
As always guys, feedback is highly appreciated, Iīd really love to hear your comments.

I love your stuff, and certainly don't have the skill for this, but sometimes the planes look too perfect, like they came right off of the factory line. Again, I love them it's just a though I had while browsing through.

  I really do appreciate honest feedback, it's the only way to make any better. Thank you for your comment, will try to add more dirt and grim on the planes, this is something I really need to improve!

I'm glad I didn't offend, I love feedback but sometimes you want more than the " I love it" you want something that may or may not make it better, and sometimes it's really hard to get some constructive feedback. I really do like them a lot, so I'm glad you don't hate me.

  Hate you!?! On the contrary my friend! I wish I had constructive feedback every time, I would have been a CG master by now! I really thank you for taking the time to write your thoughts!
