Aircraft Paintings by Red Engle


We've learned that Red Engle, the fellow who sent us the photo of N11N? has approached aviation from several angles. He was a paratrooper in the Korean War, but more recently has flown model airplanes as a member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics. As an artist and art teacher, he enjoys painting pictures of airplanes and has kindly sent us a rendering of N325M. (This Mite has special meaning to me because it was the first one I flew).

For the fun of it, Red has offered to produce "paintings on demand" for owners who would like a painting of their airplane as a gift, keepsake or whatever. Red works from photos and will require several pictures of the airplane. The painting will be rendered in durable acrylic paint, normally on a 11" x 14" canvas board for ease of shipping. Red will e-mail views of the work in progress, so changes can be made as the work progresses. He does not want any payment until the painting is received and is satisfactory. Prices are negotiable and include the cost of shipping. If you would like Red to do a painting of your airplane, please e-mail him.

Update 2014-10-29: We have been informed that Red passed away last weekend.
