This sculpture design depicts the P-51D Mustang with its pilot rising up to view a wounded German FW-190A-8 escaping into the cloud bank below. Billowing cumulus clouds form the aerial backdrop of this scene somewhere over Western Europe in late 1944. Sculpted in very fine detail, this unique original piece is created with extensive research and accurate rendering from original NAA factory drawings and photography. An approximate scale of 1:35 provides the opportunity to incorporate an amazing level of structural and aesthetic detail in the primary subject of the Mustang. In contrast to the exacting detail of the main subject, the FW-190 and cloud elements are presented in an abstract and more subtle manner. The detailed bronze sculpture is reproduced using the ancient "lost wax" casting process to create a durable "real" bronze metal heirloom for your collection. Patina colors are selected by the artist to highlight the fine detail in the Mustang and create the mood and environmental context in which this scene occurs.
Each piece is hand signed by the artist and is packed in a fine presentation box with protective lining for secure and easy shipment.
