Robert Taylor has been a prolific sketcher and a painter since childhood. After leaving art school he spent five years as a picture restorer working on many Old Masters and became recognised as one of the leading art restorers. When offered an opportunity to paint for Military Gallery, he became a professional painter. It was at this time that he began concentrating on marine and aviation subjects, and he has since established himself as the foremost aviation artist painting today. Robert Taylor's limited edition prints have attracted a large international following. From the world of aviation such notables as General Jimmy Doolittle, Sir Douglas Bader and top-scoring ace AVM Johnnie Johnson have enthused about his talent. His paintings hang in some of the most prestigious military museums around the world : The RAF Museum in London, The National Air and Space Museum in Washington, The International Air and Space Museum in San Diego, and The US Navy Museum in Pensacola. His one man exhibition at the National Air and Space Museum was described by the museum as their most popular art exhibition ever. Taylor's prodigious knowledge of subject, combined with a rare draughtman's talent and a classic style of painting has brought Taylor to the top of his profession. His canvases are expressive, distinctive, and exude a talent that is nothing short of exciting. His paintings are complete works of art in every sense.

Airacobra

Click the name above to see prints featuring Airacobra aircraft.

Manufacturer : Bell

Airacobra

In early 1937, Bell Aircraft presented a revolutionary fighter design to the USAAC, the P-39 Airacobra. Incorporating machine guns and the most powerful cannon available, the new design by Robert Woods, utilized many revolutionary design features. The all-metal, low wing, monoplane design utilized a centrally located engine in the fuselage, a feature which enhanced maneuverability. A nine foot shaft ran through the cockpit to drive the propeller. Woods design was the first fighter to incorporate a forward tricycle landing gear, which gave the P-39 pilot great visibility while on the ground. The first prototype flew in 1938. Equipped with a supercharged Allison water-cooled V-12 rated at 1,150-HP, the prototype performed admirably. It exhibited a top speed of 390-MPH, and an amazingly quick rate of climb. Unfortunately for the Airacobra, the USAAC decided to eliminate the supercharged engine from the project, a move which would relegate the Airacobra to the distinction of being Americas forgotten fighter of WW II.
