Franky and the Martlets
I've about recovered from seeing "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow". One day I may even find it in my heart to forgive.
In the meantime, here's a nice shot of Franky in formation with her flight of Martlets.
...and this is another grab from my pile of sketches; a non-conventional configuration for a prop driven fighter done long before the film. It's nothing earth-shattering, anyone that has a reasonable grasp of aircraft from the period would have stumbled along the same design eventually. I just enjoy the similarities the film display to my design, even down to the Commonwealth roundel forward of the cockpit. Of course my aircraft NEVER go aquatic.
...and here's a REAL Martlet. Salute!!!
