Waist Gunners by sekido54 Waist Gunners by sekido54
Waist gunners hang on tight as their scout ships bank hard starboard(right). They vector to their new coordinates.

I haven't submitted anything for almost 3 months. Whether it's work, other commitments, or artist's block, it's been hard to find the time to develop new artwork. Done in PS.

Happy New Year, Everyone!

Ed

awesome job. . . but . . . the shell casings are backwards, and it looks more like a belt-fed cannon, than a door gun. a good door gun should have a high rate of fire and use a large caliber rifle round, larger than a 7.62x39 nato, but smaller than a 50 BMG

Thanks for the comments. I drew the shells to look like those grenades fired from rifles during WW2.

man that gunner position would really suck... kinda like being in the ball turret on the flying fortress(b-52..i think)

Thanks for the comment. I think you meant a B-17 Flying Fortress, right? A B-52 is a Stratofortress. My dad was a door gunner on helicopters at one time during the Vietnam War, which inspired me to create this.

oh one thing, do you think i could use that monobike concept thingy, i mean basically a motorcycle with one tire and stuff, not the same design ofcourse, i don't like being a copycat.

By all means, don't rush. Quality is better than quantity IMHO.
