Suspect that there was a background painting done, with variations of the aircraft put in on top of the painting.

The original that I own is everywhere an actual painting, not a background lithograph. I don't know if it makes sense to paint the same background over and over. Eyeballing the two, the leaves and buildings *look* identical. I suppose the thing to do is overlay the images and see just how exactly they line up...

The background, including those buildings, seems to be identical, with the exception, that the Army got
that bathing pond.

Its not uncommon in aviation concept art for the earlier oil painting to be overpainted in a modified configuration, rather than have the artist paint an entirely new picture.
