Dietz Dolls Nose Art Pinup Series

Presenting a 'what if' nose art. While Tank crews would often name their Tanks and perhaps the occasional pinup or other drawing might adorn the side of the Tank; it was pretty rare to find (if even at all) an American Tank all decked out with Nose Art, kill markings, and pinups like the Fighter and Bomber aircraft had. So, what if a Sherman Tank crew had decided to mimic the Army Air Force style of Nose Art? Here's one possibility with Anna and 'Infantry Support'. Panzer kills and 75mm shells representing important targets hit complete this 'what if' Sherman Tank Nose Art!
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!
