Daily Sketch 09.22.2010

Here is the WIP (that is art slang for Work In Progress) of Glory and Goldie from Fortune & Glory.

Yup, Goldie is the plane. Her full name is Glory’s Gold, but we affectionately call her Goldie. She is a Douglas Dolphin, an amphibious flying boat. While only 58 were built, they served a wide variety of roles: private “yacht,” airliner, military transport, and search & rescue.

The Dolphin originated in 1930 as the Sinbad, a pure flying boat without wheels. In 1931 Douglas Aircraft added the wheels and turned the Sinbad into the Dolphin, catching the interest of the United States Coast Guard who bought 12 Dolphins to use for search and rescue. See the Daily Sketch can be educational too.
