    yup, i think my gear up hack needs a bit of nose art. should look vaguely military but doesn't have to be strictly interpreted. i'm thinking about designs and have a couple in mind.

    snake-eye'd dice in a white ring. (reminiscent of eddie's hat-in-the-ring squadron)

    two pink, one stink 'shocker' hand inside a black spade.


    any ideas?

    me

    p.s. i like the idea of p-40 flying tiger teeth too but don't know how it would look on a hammerhead hack.

    There's a photo floating around of a hack painted exactly as you describe. I couldn't find it but if you spend some time you might be able to.

    BTW, I think it looks pretty cool.

    If you try the Russian Iron forum I bet those buys could point you directly to it.

    A search on Esquire and nose art should come up with some things. Esquire did the girly pictures back then. I was thinking an Esquire pic with the legs around a big bottle of Vodka.:1drink
    Note: These could be put on magnetic material.

    Some cool pics.

    I had never really thought about this, but, now I see I have been negligent:huh

    Hopefully, others will post more pics.
