This pyrography wall artwork of HMS Illustrious shows her in her post 2010 guise, as a helicopter assault carrier. This artwork shows her with several helicopters, including an Apache ground assault aircraft, ranged on deck. I have drawn the forward aircraft hoist in the lowered position, showing some of the ships internal details. Following the controversial withdrawal of the Harrier VSTOL fighter in 2010, "Lusty", as she is known in the Royal Navy, operated as one of two Royal Navy helicopter carriers until her retirement in May, 2016.
This artwork is approximately 200 x 360mm (8" x14"), and is unframed.
I have hand-drawn a huge amount of accurate detail in this artwork - communications arrays, life-raft canisters, flight-deck markings, even the flight-deck safety nets are in the proper position (lowered) for flying operations.
It is drawn on 3mm beech-faced plywood, and is sealed with 3 coats of varnish.
Indoor use only.
