Product description:The painting is entitled "Seahawk". It accompanied by the Glenn Miller Big Band song In the Mood. The painting is imaginary as it's recovered by an Iowa class battleship. The SC-1 Seahawk was designed as a hybrid: a cruiser and battleship-launched naval gunfire spotter capable of moderate fighter performance. With two .50 calibers and a 270-knot top speed from its 1,300hp Wright R1820, it was capable of defending itself against enemy aircraft. First flown in early 1944, the Seahawk entered fleet service late that year. Including seven prototypes and preproduction aircraft, 577 SC-1s were delivered, in contrast to the older Vought OS2U Kingfisher, with some 1,500 produced. Seahawks were delivered on wheels for ease of operation ashore, with floats attached before embarking in ships. Though SCs went to sea in October 1944, their combat debut occurred off Borneo in June 1945. Under-wing racks accepted a pair of 250-pound bombs or 325-pound depth charges, and a wing-mounted surface-search radar was optional

I've been drawing since childhood. I'm a retired military pilot. When stationed in northern Maine I began to paint. I painted off and on for 30 years...mostly off. After being furloughed from the airline industry I began to paint daily. I've been doing that for three years. I strive for realism. I enjoy painting from old black & white photos, videos, and ancient sculpture. I'm now dedicating my web site at AlbaPaintings.com to painting the greatest generation. read more
