Default Red Dog XII

Hi Everyone
Here is a subject photo of my newest Intarsia commission. It is the Nose Art on a restored WWII P51 Mustang that belongs to my client's uncle. I am making this as a Christmas gift so this WIP will be going pretty quick.It will be set in an 11" x 14" cherry frame.

Here is a close-up of the subject that I used to make the pattern.

Made from Cherry with Bloodwood accents.
The letters are made from Bloodwood with Peruvian walnut shadows

Another Photo of the progress on Red Dog.
So far I have about 150 pieces with about 15 pieces left to do.
Once all of the pieces are cut ,shaped and fitted then I will start to inlay everything into the background.
