Vector work without background this time.
Adobe Illustrator. Close to 500 layers.
Took ages to complete. Combination of gradient mesh and normal vector with transparencies thrown in to make a ‘dirty’ look of wear and tear !

“Amazing detail – looks like a painted technical drawing you’d find in an encyclopedia. I wish it were larger just so I could find more to be amazed with (especially in the cockpit). Awesome usage of the gradient mesh tool as well to simulate wear. An outstanding example from an excellent artist with almost no pageviews and from the exponential improvement in his gallery I expect great things.”
