Featuring Shalyah in this North American B-25 Mitchell Nose Art airbrushed style pinup titled 'Blonde Bombshell'. It's hard to think of World War 2 aircraft without envisioning the classic pinup Nose Art of the time. Pilots and crew would adorn the nose, engines, and sometimes even the 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.
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!
