Aces by Edo is the new section on ArtByEdo.com where you can find plane and aviation related prints. The plan is to keep making high quality prints available for various aircraft throughout history, to include helicopters, civil aircraft, and even airships. If you have a special request or commission please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Another legenary Ace coming at you from the 357th Fighter Group, this time it’s Nooky Booky IV, flown by the Top Ace of the Group, Maj. “Kit” Carson. Kit scored an incredible 18 and half air-to-air kills within the last six months of the war in 1944. Most of these kills were scored in this P-51D, “Nooky Booky IV.” Kit named all of his aircraft “Nooky Booky.”
One technical note on this drawing: the exhaust cowling is removed. P-51’s still today can sometimes be seen flying without the cowling in place.
Introducing a first for Art by Edo, aircraft side profile views, starting with the famed P-51D Mustang. This fantastic aircraft formed the backbone of the allies’ air superiority in late WWII. Over 70 hours were spend to bring this aircraft to life using vector art, and the attention to detail can be seen everywhere.
