A new commission

I have been commissioned to do a painting of a Tornado GR Jet from RAF 617 Squadron, 'The Dam Busters'.
I have started planning the painting in my head. I am familiar with the aircraft as i had the opportunity to visit a number of RAF Airbases over the last few years, and even sat in a Tornado jet fighter! I will share with you the progress of the painting from initial sketches to final version. With any commission of this nature research is essential, making sure the aircraft markings are correct for the time it is portraying, the correct aircraft version at the time and so on.
