    Hi all.

    I am currently looking for photos of B-24D Assembly Ships or "Judas Goats". If anyone can provide photos of these aircraft I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks Wheels. And I found the correct Assembly Ship, though I'm still trying to find its noseart.

    Though it is not an Assembly Ship, I'm trying to find photos of "Thar She Blows Again" (The name of the Liberator First Sergeant before it was made into an Assembly Ship) for a couple of profiles I'm making. Also, more photos of First Sergeant can be a big help.

    Thanks for the links GG, more reference than I needed.

    Thanks all!

    Dang, I thought you were looking for Assembly Ship paintjobs...not the original noseart!

    "Thar She Blows Again" was a Lib with the 93rdBG, 8thAF.

    Here's a page with noseart of the 93rdBG, including "Thar She Blows", which is towards the bottom right of the collection...

    Sorry GG! Though thanks for the link, will have a little fun duplicating the noseart. :)

    Thanks all for the help.

    Hi,
    I don't have photos of the assembly ships, but I'll post a profile right now. Check the profile section.
