Pinups - Checkered Nose Beauty by warbirdphotographer
Pinups - Checkered Nose Beauty
Another entry into the 'Aviation Pinup Series' featuring each branch of the US Military... today's airbrushed style pinup photo features model Kayla, the Army Air Force, and the North American P-51D Mustang! First built in 1940, this single engined fighter is debated to be one of the greatest fighter aircraft of all time. The first Mustang prototype was rolled of assembly only 102 days from design to ready to fly! The Army Air Force didn't have much interest in it after the first tests after the performance wasn't very impressive with the original Allison V-1710 engine that limited high altitude performance. It wasn't until the RAF, who saw the Mustang's potential, fitted it with a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine that the Mustang would go on to make history. Serving in both the European Theater and (while limited) the Pacific Theater of World War 2, this aircraft was truly versatile providing long range escort of bombers, attacking of ground targets, dogfighting the Luftwaffe, and more. Over 15,000 Mustangs were built with the last military service of the F-51 Mustang flying for the Dominican Air Force ending in 1984! 

Want a print or large size poster of this Army Air Force Pinup? You can order one now on the Dietz Dolls Online Store! www.dietzdolls.com/catalog/pro…

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.

Nose Art Recreations - Two Beauts (B-17F) by warbirdphotographer
Nose Art Recreations - Two Beauts (B-17F)
PINUPS ARE BACK! Kicking this week off with a new Nose Art recreation... 

Another recreation of a REAL Nose Art from WW2! This pinup is based on a Boeing B-17F Flying Fortress named 'Two Beauts' from the 358th Bombardment Squadron, 303rd Bomb Group. This aircraft is unique as the nose art isn't actually on the nose this time, but rather about half way down the aircraft just above the belly ball turret on the right side. This particular aircraft was declared MIA (missing in action) after a collision with another B-17F in March of 1943. 
This image is made from various photos put together to replicate the nose art with digital artwork and photomanipulation used to simulate the painted look on the side of a bomber. Colors are best guesses as many of the WW2 nose art photos are black and white. The original WW2 nose art photo was used only as a reference. The background is a photo of unpainted WW2 aircraft skin for panel and rivet texture. The iconic OD Green and Gray paint were digitally painted. All the elements were blended together to appear really painted such as paint textures, colorization, metal surface blending, and more. A photo of the original aircraft is in the bottom right of the image. The original artwork was not censored with a black bar nor the recreation, however to keep it classy the 'AAF Censor' bars were added.

The Flying Fortress by warbirdphotographer
The Flying Fortress
It's going to be a week or two more before I can get back to the pinups... aviation photography is piling up! 

  Here's a shot from yesterday's (5/4) air to air shoot with Collings Foundation's B-17G Flying Fortress 'Nine O Nine.' This very tired workhorse has been giving tours and rides throughout the United States almost every day for many years. With the Collings Foundation's acquire of a second B-17, 'Nine O Nine' will be retired from the nation touring so I was very honored to be able to get some aerial time with her.

Corsair on the Hunt... Pinups will return soon! by warbirdphotographer
Corsair on the Hunt... Pinups will return soon!
It's been a bit quiet on this account, and it will continue to be for a bit longer as I shift through nearly 100,000 photos from recent airshows including the Planes of Fame Airshow this past weekend in Chino, CA. You can keep up with the latest aviation photos here: www.facebook.com/MomentsCaptur…

  To hold you all over, here's a shot from an air to air shoot yesterday with the Planes of Fame Air Museum's F4U-1A Corsair over Lake Matthews piloted by Rob Patterson. This was shot from the waist gunner's window of a B-25 Mitchell. Not pictured is the original A6M5 Zero, SBD-5 Dauntless, and P-38J Lightning that were also flying with us for the shoot.

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.
