    Default Short Type 184

    A Short 184 was the first aircraft to sink a ship using a torpedo, and the only British aircraft to take part in the Battle of Jutland.

    I'm surprised we can see the pilots since they are the Short brothers.

    Dramatic image.

    You could make the darks a bit darker and the lights a bit lighter to get that sunlight on the wings with the ocean going dark and stormy.

    Thanks Gary, for your suggestions. I think the Short Brothers are sitting on a box.

    I agree although I love the image GP's suggestion is dramatic.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.
