    I'm making a new template for the C-47 Skytrain, I'm doing a skin for the C-47 call letters J7, tail N #313142. I located photos of a J7 in France I believe which has no nose art, I located a rare picture of the J7, with nose art and named "Shoo Shoo Baby". I am hoping that someone may be able to locate a better picture of the nose art on the original J7 so I can recreate it

    The pictures below are of the new J7 and the original D-Day J7.

    Thanks Aaron I appreciate your looking 8) The only other "Shoo Shoo Baby" I find is the B-17. I'll keep trying, there, must be something out there, it's probably stuck in the archives somewhere :(

    Thanks all for the great help, a fellow skinner located a copy of the nose art that is the same, the artist used the same girl on several planes. Hopefully I'll get this C-47 done soon. I'll post a screen shot when done :D
