After creating artwork to be included with the
Fisher 1/32 F9F-8 Cougar kit, I decided to refine one of the
illustrations and place it "in context". Here is what I have done.
I masked and airbrushed this illustration in Adobe Photoshop.. It's far
from perfect, but I have to stop and
say it's done. Try to think of it as a portrait of a Cougar.
This is the CAG bird of VF-61 (BuNo.141092), in 1956, deployed with the
U.S.S. INTREPID (CV-11).
The INTREPID is seen in her post SCB-27A fit, festooned with those cool
looking, twin 3-in. / 50 Cal
I'm offering prints of this illustration in 13" x 19" (329mm x 483mm)
printed on heavyweight matte paper and they will be available thru my
I hope to produce a mate for this print,
eventually. Maybe an FJ-3 Fury?
By the way, the actual inspiration for this came from Paul Fisher's
amazing kit, which may be found at
Who says a model can't inspire?
