A nice piece with a good balance and variety of treatments. I always feel that the larger, more detailed illustration element, the 88 and its crew in this case, benefit from strong, simplified and more graphic elements, such as the silhouetted aircraft and its straightforward labeling. A bit like like the lemon in your G&T my good man, it's nice to have that snappy contrast. Fair play to you

Interesting that you found all these pieces of shrapnel - and even traced them ...

But if they don't explode like this - a circular pattern, - I don't get the idea of showing it this way. Even if it looks nice on the page.

You also arranged it so the biggest pieces of shrapnel is on the outside of the explosion to give the shape definition. But somehow I would think that the bigger the piece, the shorter it travels?

Gert - nice to hear from you pal.

I see exactly what you mean. The US Army Research listed in the blog post showed research into the shape of exploding flak.

None were conclusive so i wasn't able to show the exact pattern on bursting. But you are right - it would have been the best option.

As for velocities, heavier objects travel faster as a general rule (and up to a point). Although in my stylised arrangement of shrapnel, at that size of explosion, all pieces would be of roughly equal velocity, before the lighter ones dropped off.

The main purpose of this part of the graphic was to show the amount of shrapnel pieces - i wondered if i should just do a forensic layout - like the photo - but the 'burst pattern' was also more fitting with the floor/sky scheme of the page.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Hello, I enjoy reading all of your article. I wanted to write a little comment to support you.


I think that everything said made a bunch of sense. But, consider this, what if you added a little content? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added a post title that makes people want more? I mean maxgadney.com: Flak - WWII Magazine, Sept. 2009 is kinda vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create news titles to grab people to click. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.
