    my 2 newest Lancaster nose arts...the McColl-Frontenac indian head one was my test piece...then the 419 Moose squadron is the first in a series I want to do. Its about 28 inches X 29...riveted aluminum then I framed them with rough lumber to resemble shipping crates....the pilots name is a pilot from that squadron that didnt make it back.

    Excellent work Rollie. It's nice to see the old school trade still being applied nowadays since everything has pretty much gone to vinyl lettering. I remember when I started trucking about 28 years ago I had every truck I bought done hand lettered and pinstriped and it was always cool to watch the guy at work with the steady hand and a flair for the artwork.
