Aircraft: B-24 Liberator
A special homage Nose Art with Shauna and a B-24 Liberator named 'Star Dust'! Calling on the classic Vargas style pinup that would often adorn nose of Fighters/Bombers or the backs of bomber jackets during World War 2. This particular Nose Art Pinup represents the US Army Air Force with the two toned colors before the aircraft switched to all aluminum finishes. Nose Art and Jacket Art were often very colorful and not only represented the aircraft the person was assigned to, but also what squadron or overall group the person was with. Pilots and crew would adorn the nose, engines, and sometimes even waist or tail of their aircraft with rather colorful artwork giving the aircraft not only a name, but a personality. Accompanying catchy slogans, ironic phrases, or names of loved ones back home the Nose Art was often completed with a pinup girl. This pinup is a homage to a real B-24 aircraft with similar nose art, but this version is fictional.
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!
