    Anyone got a pic of the nose art of this aircraft?
    I found one some time ago on the net, but can't locate it now, not even on the official web-site for the 381st.
    This 'Fort' was stationed at Ridgewell in 1944 on, and is shown in a series of well-known colour shots of a formation of three to four bare metal forts, some with P51 'Iowa Beaut' in the background.
    The nose art is wording only, in red.
    Thanks in advance.

    I think I found it Terry. The ser. # was listed as 42-106994 under the photo.

    Absolutely brilliant Aaron! Thanks very much indeed - I can now paint it on the nose of the 1/48th scale model I built about 16 years ago !

    Sounds like you have some unfinished models almost as old as mine Terry :lol:
