Beautiful angle of a amazing looking aircraft! Love the paint scheme on this one. Also good quality picture.

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 24, 2011:
To the folks comment about it being a modelers' nightmare - look up the Aztec paneling decals currently made for Star Trek ships, no sweat.

A visitor from - posted Sat March 12, 2011:
Such a nice Photo. But do they paint the A/C like this to annoy us model builder? Or is there a tactical reason.

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 23, 2011:
This is a great angle for the shot. Being one of the 2 painters who were sought after to paint this jet, it think it was worth the 60+ days of painting and hundreds of hours aligning the angles to make all corners 90 degrees, it was all worht while.

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 15, 2011:
I have never seen a plane in this camo design !

A visitor from United States posted Sat December 18, 2010:
Spectacular image of the unique Hornet! The subject really pops. Great color. Great framing. Great shot.

A visitor from France posted Sat October 23, 2010:
Great Shot !!!!

Nice shot Ralphie, should have stuck a black cat emblem on it w/ a 13 if you know what I mean.

The conception initiates a realization in ordinary circumstances this low to the ground.

Look like a patchwork-plane... thanks for a great picture!

A visitor from Australia posted Fri October 1, 2010:
My first thought was that perhaps the F/A-18 is now in the hands of a fourth company; conceived by Northrop, raised by MDD, adopted by Boeing and now time-sharing with Lego.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu September 30, 2010:
Great angle to use "Camera on the ground". To the poster claiming it's was not invented by the photographer... duh. I don't think up to this point anyone one stated that. I myself have been using this technique since 1978. My first examples were model planes as well so I too agree this picture has the look of a model plane on the concrete 'staged look'.

A visitor from - posted Wed September 29, 2010:
Camera on the ground is a technique in aviation photography to give the airplane a bigger-than-life look. This is a beautiful shot but it was not invented by him or anyone else in recent times. I have used this method for over 35 years in slide shooting and now digital too. It is standard in our photography of military and commercial aviation. This is a nice example of this technique.

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 29, 2010:
Best paint job ever! 8 weeks of work and you get an awesome looking jet. hoorah!

A visitor from - posted Wed September 29, 2010:

A visitor from Canada posted Wed September 29, 2010:
Camera on the ground... hmmm are you sure this isn't model kit say in 1/32 scale? :P Can you imagine laying out decals on a model kit for this scheme? I'm going to assume this bird was painted because I can't see a 'wrap' lasting long at high speed.

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 29, 2010:
Cool picture. Looks like a play off of the new "digital" camo that the ground forces are using, obviously not intended to decrease the visibility of the aircraft though!

A visitor from Singapore posted Wed September 29, 2010:
Looks like the bug in newspaper wraparound. I kinda like this scheme. And a modeller's nightmare on Elm Street come true :D More difficult than the Swedish Saab Viggen two tone green, black and brown zig zag camo.


A visitor from - posted Wed September 29, 2010:
The paint scheme is from the Navy Working Uniform. NWUs are pretty much the Navy's camo.

A visitor from France posted Wed September 29, 2010:
Today, the painter is in a psychiatric hospital ...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed September 29, 2010:
Looks funky! I like the digital camoschemes. :)

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed September 29, 2010:
To ugly to look at (so great camo ;D)!

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 28, 2010:
Thats a pretty cool shot, Ralph!


A visitor from United States posted Tue September 28, 2010:
Fine pic. Ugly scheme.

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 28, 2010:
Excellent clear background and good color. But I'm confused! Is this a real camouflage or just an old garage sale sofa????

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue September 28, 2010:
Dazzling scheme

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 28, 2010:
Hats off to the Navy for this paint job! The Air Force is way too "tightly wound" to ever go for this sort of livery (too many MBA's). Looks great!

A visitor from - posted Tue September 28, 2010:
Damn Ralph! That thing is awesome. Great shot!
