As someone who made a good part of his living from aviation art back in the '80s I have to tell you I'm impressed by this piece; the colors are particularly striking. I can't imagine the hours it took to complete it, and the bidding is only up to $35?? That's crazy!

...looks like they even achieved the correct shade of PC10.  You've just convinced me to bid on it!
