Planes are awesome. Older planes doubly so! They're full of interesting texture and detail; panels, curves and rivets, and they make the most magnificent ruckus when they take to the skies.

These particular planes, swathed in retro motorsport liveries by Bill of Clavework Graphics, are something else!

Liveries from Gulf and Rothmans to BAR Honda and Benetton are represented on classic planes like the Hawker Typhoon, Polikarpov I-15 and the English Electric Lightning. It's an awesome idea, executed spectacularly well!
