Jockeying with Gemini's Wake by N0T3R
Jockeying with Gemini's Wake
Air & Space had an article about all the roles the Phantom II has played.  One of them was flying chase along side the Gemini launches in the mid 1960's and taking pictures.  I'd never heard of this or seen any images of it, all I knew was that both vehicles were moving fast in the vertical and wanted to capture that speed in the image.  In researching I found a couple of photos that gave me a decent reference of how the scenario played out and tried to get close to reality while making in interesting image.

Thanks, wish I could draw like that too.  It was done in 3d.  It is a model with a custom skin and rendered.

Your work is absolutely fantastic! The details that go into every plane are incredible and the renders are very well done. I could learn a thing or two from them!
