        F/L J. F. Thomas and the crew of Avro Lancaster Bomber 'B' MkI 'Victorious Virgin' RF128 QB-V of RCAF 424 Squadron "Tiger" Squadron on the 21st of March 1945. (probably taken at the Skipton-on-Swale, North Yorkshire airfield)

        Crew member, Leading aircraftman (LAC) Matthew C. Ferguson (a former Calgarian) painted the nose artwork on this plane and others in the squadron. He also painted the first-ever and only known example of artwork on an aerial bomb, this 4000 pound "cookie" bomb was intended to celebrate the 2000th operation by No. 424 "Tiger" Squadron.
        The plane's nose artwork was modelled on an original 'November 1944' Alberto Varga pin-up. The bomb artwork shows a winged tiger breaking out of an Easter egg and this particular bomb was a special present for Hitler from the squadron. It was dropped on the oil refinery at Hemmingstedt, near Heide in Germany.

        July, 1942.


        This Panzer VI Tiger II 'Königstiger' (Turret Nº 2-11) from the 2.Kompanie, schwere Panzer Abteilung 506 was captured by American troops and restored to a running condition by Company 'B' of the 129th Ordnance Battalion, 7th Armored Division in Gereonsweiler, Germany on the 15th of December 1944.

        The 'Tiger' took a hit to the base of the turret that jammed it at the 3 o'clock position. A heavy wrecking truck was used to 'twist' the turret to the forward position and the US soldiers, seen here, are probably engaged in a battlefield clearance operation. (see the attached video)

                      Great work Tom. I'm especially liking the desert air force Spitfires and the B-29.

                        Fantastical Tom. I have no idea how to do this, but I imagine the colouring on the footpath in the second last pic must've taken you ages.
