    Now that is funny. Looks like all the major Sunday comic strip characters of the day. I can identify at least half of them. Nice find. :)

    Nice one Paul. I've only ever seen a B&W pic of that nose art before. It sure would be a goo0d one to do. I think that B24 is 15th Air Force?

    If it survived the war, I wonder what happened to the nose art? Be a shame if it was scrapped.
