This is a photo composite of a recently completed pair of Warthogs (1/48th Hobbyboss and 1/144th Dragon) that I built as part of a diorama depicting a historic tank busting mission during Desert Storm. The process was lengthy and complex, and a little explorational, but resulted in some neat imagery. It is somewhat lengthy to go into the process here, but if you are interested, you can see and learn more at boomandzoomgraphics.com/frankenhog.html

Thats really nice.  Love the forced perspective.  I've wanted to do a Gulf of Sidra incident - I've have the 1/144 f14 in the stash for years.

Really nice stuff

Thanks,

John

I can't see any wire's ...... are you "SURE" those are model's ????

Nice job !!!   I love the turret flying through the air.

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

There never were any wires. Here's a raw photo prior to compositing. (Not the same one, but similar. I took a bunch from various angles) The background image is a previously photographed diorama I built that has been composited with a doctored USAf photo. Note the reflection of the light diffusers in the TV screen. It required five separate photos composited together to achieve what I wanted. Thank goodness I didn't try to recreate the Battle of Britain!
