Pinups - Wonderous Warhawk by warbirdphotographer
Pinups - Wonderous Warhawk
This will be the last pinup for about two weeks as I focus on the upcoming Planes of Fame Airshow in Chino, CA. 

Another entry into the 'Aviation Pinup Series' featuring each branch of the US Military... today's airbrushed style pinup photo features model Beth, the Army Air Force, and famed tigershark mouth Curtiss P-40 Warhawk! First built in 1938, this single engined fighter also known as the 'Tomahawk' and 'Kittyhawk' is probably most known not actually for it's service in the Army Air Force but flying for the 1st American Volunteer Group (AVG) with the Chinease Air Force in a group known as the 'Flying Tigers.' These American volunteers, eager to jump into the war before America's entry in late 1941, claimed over 100 enemy aircraft destroyed. The P-40 would be used in all theaters of the war including Africa and early models were present at Pearl Harbor the time of the attack. The classic 'Tigershark Mouth' seen on the P-40s is said to have originated from Royal Air Force's 112 Squadron in North Africa. The first USAAF victory against a German aircraft was actually with a P-40C Warhawk in mid 1942. While the P-40 had many strengths, by the time the WW2 was in full gear with all countries involved it was considered inferior compared to that of the Lightning, Thunderbolt, and Mustangs. However, the P-40 proved itself in breaking Japan's air power with the bulk of the 1941-1942 Army Air Force operations performed by P-40s. 

This pinup is part of a new 'simple' type of aviation pinup that I'll be doing more of in the coming months using Army Air Force, Navy, and Marine aircraft ranging from fighters to transports to bombers. Each will feature a pinup with an aircraft and the matching US insignia for that aircraft as we go through each branch of the service honoring the pilots and aircraft of WW2. The background will also be themed to the aircraft's color schemes during the war.

Pinups - Car Trouble
Today's airbrushed style pinup photo features Brittany in this Car Trouble Pinup! With her 1939 Ford giving her some issues on her trip, Brittany has decided to put her hair back, pull up her dress, and get into that engine to fix it herself. Who needs a mechanic?

Pinups - Mighty Hellcat by warbirdphotographer
Pinups - Mighty Hellcat
Another entry into the 'Aviation Pinup Series' featuring each branch of the US Military... today's airbrushed style pinup photo features model Rachel, the US Navy, and the rock solid Grumman F6F Hellcat! With a first flight in 1942, the mighty Hellcat was produced between 1942 and 1945 with over 12,200 built. It was a rugged carrier aircraft serving with the US Navy as the front line Naval fighter during WW2. With a massive 2,000 horsepower engine shared with the Corsair and the P-47 Thunderbolt, this 9,200+ pound aircraft could travel 391 mph with a range of 945 miles. Both the Marines and Navy used the Hellcat along with Britain, France, and even Uruguay. After the war the Hellcat was replaced with the smaller and more manoeuvrable F8F Bearcat.

This pinup is part of a new 'simple' type of aviation pinup that I'll be doing more of in the coming months using Army Air Force, Navy, and Marine aircraft ranging from fighters to transports to bombers. Each will feature a pinup with an aircraft and the matching US insignia for that aircraft as we go through each branch of the service honoring the pilots and aircraft of WW2.

Pinups - Beautiful Lightning by warbirdphotographer
Pinups - Beautiful Lightning
Another entry into the 'Aviation Pinup Series' featuring each branch of the US Military... today's airbrushed style pinup photo features model Shalyah, the Army Air Force, and the famed 'fork-tailed devil'... the Lockheed P-38 Lightning! First built in 1939, this twin engined aircraft ran on basically two P-40 Allison Engines with turbo superchargers. This 37 foot long 52 foot wide fighter had a range of 1,300 miles and could achieve over 400mph. Standard P-38s carried one 20mm cannon and four .50 cal machine guns all in the nose of the aircraft. It could carry rockets, bombs, or drop tanks on the wings. It was a multi-role aircraft able to bomb targets, dive attack ground targets, provide photo reconnaissance, fight at night, and provide long range escort to bombers when fitted with drop tanks. The P-38 was the US Army Air Forces main escort fighter until the P-51 Mustang came into full service. Famous ace Major Richard Bong scored 40 kills in his P-38 Lightning during the war. Over 10,000 were built overall with the last P-38 being retired from the US Air Force in 1949. Other countries continued to operate the P-38 till 1965!
