My client's grandfather was the tail gunner on this aircraft, and commissioned me to paint his machine. My last few commissions have been civil aircraft so I was eager to share a new military piece on WW2A/C.net!
Dramatic! Interesting perspective too!
What's that red line on the side of the nose?
Looks like a nose gear towbar limit line to me.Thanks, all!
The red line is a mystery to me, too. But not only is it on this aircraft, but 'Dazzlin' Dutchess', another 455th BG a/c of the 740th BS, has it as well and in exactly the same spot.
