Buffalo or X-Wing?

I'm sure that by now most of my readers have seen this photoshop job at least once before:

When I saw it for the first time, I just laughed... then took a much closer look at it, and was amazed at the job the person behind the 'shop had done.  It really looks like an Incom T-65 X-Wing wound up on an escort carrier in 1942.  What never crossed my mind, however, was to try and find the original.  Well, tonight while browsing ww2db.com, I accidentally stumbled across it!

Bravo, Mr Photoshop Person, bravo.

1 Well of course, it's not like they've have the right kind of fuel to re-launch it.

2 It really is an amazingly good job.

3 It isn't until you see the two side-by-side (okay, bottom-by-top) that you start to notice the little things he missed.  Like the arresting cable in the foreground that the X-Wing couldn't have caught like that.  Or the wire attached to the Buffalo's right wing that just sorta... floats there above and behind the X-Wing.

But if THAT'S the worst I can come up with...
