Preparing T-Tommy

Postby pmdavies33 » Sat Mar 21, 2015 8:31 am

I frame a lot of aviation related subjects in my location and occasionally something special turns up. Preparing T-Tommy by Richard Taylor is a lovely piece in its own right but when provided with an official photo of the crew, a description of the mission and authentic brevets (3 out of 6) it was left to me to do it justice. Hopefully I have pulled it off!!

Nice job, did you print the information that went in the frame? on an Item like that I would normally make the paper less stark.

IFGL. It was given to me as a job lot of items, In hindsight I agree with you and should have approached the customer about changing it.
