Streamline Spitfire & Hurricane

Another from my main blog, Vintage Aero Writer.


This one from 2011, looking back to the late thirties when the fastest things around were the RAF’s new fighters. Well, in the pictures, anyway!

It’s notable that the (in reality) bulkier and less refined design Hurricane is made to look positively arrow-like by the artist’s use of blacks and greys and a strong perspective vanishing point. The early Spitfire Mk.I looks positively dowdy in contrast, though more realistic.
