Second Place Award Winning Design 

2013 AFDCS Cachetmaker Contest

For the subsequent covers following the Number One of Ten that was entered in the AFDCS Cachetmaker Contest  I made a few "slight" improvements...  You will note the type has been printed rather than hand painted and I made subtle change to the background... The dark stipples are only next to the "Airmail" Border and I added a dark brown "shadow" effect to the lower sides of the aircraft... making it "pop out" just a little better than before.  I personally prefer the "new" version over the original and plan to paint the rest of the design issue in this manner.
