The first airplanes

The first airplanes

I barely keep samples of my first works, as I used to give them away as gifts: so many got lost while other mysteriously ‘vanished’. Sometimes I meet people I haven’t met before, people who own one of my works. If it happens, I’d rather not ask questions.

I presume I made these side views of an outstanding Boeing 247 in 1987 or in 1988. I remember the drawings were meant to illustrate an issue of the magazine Modelismo & Historia, so I was bound to adjust to the page template and layout and I have to do my best so these drawings would be achieved as quickly as possible. Working with the labels was an industrious task; besides, I had to draw the same aircraft twice so both airplanes had to look almost identical. I used Holbein Inks to colour and applied them with a Holbein airbrush (model Neo Hohmi).
