Gustavs Over Sola-Stavanger by Barry Spicer

Part of what the Military Aviation Art Blog is all about is creating buzz about artists that aren't as well known as Robert Taylor and Nicolas Trudgian. Following on from Horrido by Robert Taylor is this very nice print by Barry Spicer called "Gustavs Over Sola-Stavanger" (see below) which features a Bf-109G of JG5 flown by Ofw Heinz Halstrick as he circles the German airfield at Sola-Stavanger in occupied Norway, late 1944.

I've always been a sucker for detailed work and I do like a strong focus on the plane itself. The details around the cockpit and underside of the Bf-109G are superb. This is well worth the price and its a signed and numbered print by the artist in an edition of 350. Print size is 23" x 31". Price is 150.00 USD.
