About "Locate the Carrier - Hawker Nimrod"

This Hawker Nimrod returns to the carrier in rapidly worsening weather. The Hawker Nimrod was basically the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm's version of the Fury single-seat interceptor fighter, modifications included strengthened airframe and larger fuel tanks and an extra 3.5ft added to it's wingspan. The Hawker Nimrod first flew in 1930 and entered FFA service as an interceptor in 1931 but had been re-designated as a fighter trainer by the start of WW2. The Nimrod finally ended it's service with the FAA as a weather aircraft at the end of 1941. The Hawker Nimrod was powered by a Rolls-Royce Kestrel IIS or V supercharged engine, a total of 81 aircraft were produced in the 1930's for the FAA and a small number utilised by the Japanese, Danish and Portuguese armed forces.

About Don

Don Bell

I am a multi-faceted artist and illustrator, Senior Professional Architectural Technologist, former advertising exec and keen photographer. I work in oil, water colours, charcoal, pencil, Acrylics, pen and mixed-media including digital art. I enjoy all types of subject matter ranging from wildlife, landscapes, seascapes, portraits - across the spectrum to architecture, contemporary art, aviation, ships, trains and still life.
My aviation works are well researched and the aircraft and locations are accurate as possible so that they provide a true historical record for others to appreciate.

I attended art classes from a young age and was privately tutored by Andre' Vancoillie, well known local artist and lecturer at the age of 16 years as well as Paul Lavender in water colours.
My appreciation to Mrs Chilcott, my high school art teacher who saw something in me and went out of her way to mentor me by giving me extra art lessons in her spare time.
I matriculated in art at the PE Technical College.

All my works are available as prints.

Price Range

US$ 54-13,633



I have participated in exhibitions at the Getaway Show Cape Town, Port Elizabeth St Georges Gallery, De Oude Kraal Luxury Guest Lodge, Grahamstown Arts Festival, Queenstown and EPSAC Port Elizabeth.

My aviation works are on display in the South African Air Force Museum Art Gallery in Forest Hill Port Elizabeth.
