A BAC Concorbe B.3 overflies its base in the 1980s.
For the past four years I have been heavily involved in a project called The Empire’s Twilight which is an alternate history project started by a mate of mine named Tim Morley. Tim was looking for a backstory to his many “What if” models and together along with a few others we hammered out an entire alternate history where the British Empire survived World War II under the guise of the New Commonwealth and was essentially a third party in the Cold War. This ultimately leads to a nuclear war in 1991.
This was one of my first pieces where I merged a model with a background. To create this image I took one of Tim’s Concorde bomber models and blended in to an image of an airfield viewed from an aircraft passing overhead. I then played with the tones to give the impression of depth.
