Masked aircraft and adjusted the color. This one I removed the landing gear and flaps. The repairs were made to the under carriage using the pen tool to create shape of gear doors, then those shapes were filled with color. Some clone stamp samples were also used.

Some dodge and burn used also. The destruction to airplanes was accomplished with the pen tool by cutting them apart and transformations to the pieces.
