Dietz Dolls Nose Art Pinup Series
- Featuring model Brittnee - © Britt Dietz -
Aircraft: Douglas SBD-5 Dauntless
Brittnee is wearing authentic US Navy WW2 uniform pieces with a blueish gray painted Mae West life jacket that was made specifically for the Navy and used in the Pacific theater (Japanese pilots would see the bright orange Mae Wests against the blue ocean water and would strafe the downed pilots). She also has with her a trusty M1 Garand rifle, used by all branches of the military.
The Dietz Dolls Nose Art Pinup series celebrates the classic pinups that appeared on the sides of World War 2 aircraft. It could be said that nose art was one of the major causes for the boom in pinup popularity, and the timeless image of a pinup gracing the nose of a warplane has become as iconic as the war itself. With the threat of death at every turn, the pilots and crew would use these nose art pinups as their motivation of what's waiting for them back home. These Nose Art Pinups prints in this series are carefully edited to match the same painted texture styles and put on authentic WW2 aircraft, suitable for framing and a perfect gift for those in the service past and present!
