The book arrived this morning and I have only had time for a quick look.  I'm impressed!

I thought that painting (naval takeoff) must have been from a period brouchure by Hawker when i first flipped through the pub. Very well done and nice to see that format (painting) considering the time era of the original product.

Luciano was mostly inspired by old Airfix box-art, which is what he was aiming to achieve a homage to with his paintings. I was lucky enough to benefit from his talent for my book. He was already painting this kind of thing for his own personal satisfaction.

Different eras had different favoured commercial illustration practices. Like the late 1940s early 50s with  heavily retouched b&w shaded and the late 70s early 80s with cartoon like b&w line drawings.

I agree - and, while computer graphics have their place and can be very nice, there is something to be said for the art of real painting too.

Used this weekend to read the book profoundly...
It conferms my first impression...

I was pariculary surprised by the information in the the GOR 339 chapter
and the wealth of illustrations.
Most impressive to me , the color artwork on the inside cover of the Naval Strike variant..

I really loved that painting, Luciano did a great job on that, however it wasn't appropriate for the cover as it was a variant not the standard P.1121. I put it on the inside cover rather than in the main body so it could be big enough to appreciate it. The GOR.339 stuff wasn't initially part of my intention to cover but it was very linked to (and parallel with) later P.1121 developments.

There may be an article with a bit more detail on P.1129 in the future.
