Dave Douglass (USA)

Illustrator, aircraft nut, competitive plastic modeler, Cleveland, Ohio-native Dave Douglass has combined many of his interests and obsessions with computer graphics to produce detailed aircraft profiles. Born in 1964, he has spent the better part of his life pouring over books, photos and illustrations of aircraft, building plastic models of aircraft and long hours daydreaming of every aspect of aircraft. From drawing airplane profiles as a child to creating two-dimensional artwork for flight simulator aircraft as an adult, Dave has come full circle to realize one of his earliest dreams, creating profile art of his favorite flying machines.

Anton "Mangas" Romensky (Russian Federation)

Born in 1975 in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, where he currently lives and works as a telecommunications engineer, "Mangas" has always been interested in aviation history, in particular related to World War Two. He was noted for his skins for the flight simulator "Il-2 Forgotten Battles" and recently decided to try his hand at aircraft profiles, with great success.

Lieuwe de Vries (Netherlands)

Born in Franeker in 1979, Lieuwe grew up near Leeuwarden Airbase and developed an interest in military aviation at a young age. Being interested in flight simulation first led him to create textures and skins for games such as MS Flight Sim, Il-2 Forgotten Battles, Pacific Fighters and Operation Flashpoint. This hobby then evolved into a passion for making aviation profile drawings. His main interest in aviation art lies in post-World War Two military aviation.
