Shanty Tramp F-18 nose art by joewight Shanty Tramp F-18 nose art by joewight
Pencil, ballpoint, Photoshop 3

Nose art from my new series "Twilight X: ARMADA". This is my second attempt. The first was a little too...randy.

And what's wrong with randy nose art?
Some one showed me a picture of the nose art on a "milk Truck" (the plane the U.S. Navy uses to deliver mail to the fleets) that featured a blonde suffer boy. The CAG had asked if the pilot was gay, and was told that the picture was of the (female) pilots husband. Go fig.

You could probably make some commissions doing nose art for Il-2 Sturmovik players!

Well, ah'll be. She sure is a purdy thing. Too bad the pigs probably already got dibs on her.

Excellent. When I was in the Army, we convinced the CO to let us paint nose art on our helicopters (CH-47C Chinooks); they even made a contest of it. Since I was known to be fairly skilled with a pencil and paints, just about every crew wound up asking me to help them out.

I wound up doing the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place art, and getting $50 and half a case of beer for my troubles, along with a letter of appreciation from the CO. Sadly, I don't have any photos of the art, though.

When I wound up on flight status as a crew chief, my helo was named "Master Pig". She flew like a pig, too. ;P But the "Pig with the Top Hat" was pretty well known, and came through time and again.

Thanks for bringing back the memories; I love nose art... and this is an excellent piece.

Rock, Solid, Awesome, Chief!

I've always been big on nose art... I learned my grandfather flew as a mechanic on a B-19 crew. The plane was named "The Cap'n & Kids".

I'd love to see more nose art work here on DA... hm, perhaps there's a chance we can collab sometime in the future?

Sure thing. I'd be willing to collab some stuff. I see you did a *shinga tribute, so we might do something as a gift for her... I think she'd enjoy that.

Dunno yet. Drop a note or email to chuck@ashigaru.com

Thinking an Abrams tank, maybe... or something in a bomber jacket. ;P

Let's see that original! I love nose art. I'd love to see a sci-fi epic with it. Like, some Vipers or such with "CYLON BUSTA" on the nose, etc.
