    ...nothing ventured, nothing gained - and with zero income these past 2 months, it's time to think about a simplified design that will actually sell... :|

    Anyhow, here are three 'possibles' and as always, opinions/criticisms greatly appreciated.

    Here is Idea 1:

    For my two cents, I like #3 the best

    Nice stuff but my marketing brain is kicking in....

    They're making a Flying Tigers movie. Start making Flying Tigers merchandise (prints, t-shirts, JACKETS, T-shirts with the "Laundry Ticket" on the back.. I'd buy one!) now... If you have a web site, start doing search engine optimization (SEO) for Flying Tigers NOW (i can give you SEO tips). if you dont have a shopping cart enabled web site... build one. it's easy..

    Interest in the Flying Tigers will peak for a while... If it's a great movie, the peak will be a very long one. The key is SEO... get your keywords and phrases solidified now so the search engines see you as a resource for the Flying Tigers... 80 percent of the battle is driving traffic to your site.

    Oh yeah.. your illustrations are great!!:D

    #3 is the best, have you considered making the flag appear to be waving, instead of flat?

    No 3 is far ahead of the others, so that is settled. :)

    A wavy flag eh? Well I am willing to try that...

    Hmm... looking at it again, bearing in mind the flag is 'sort of' a background detail, I like the flat square version better as it distracts less from the plane. (The flag in all cases is at 30% visibility by the way)

    A couple more variations just to show what the whole series might be like:

    I think you've got a winner with that design, and I agree about the waving flag, too distracting.

    Oh, just another question...

    Should I organize these by country, or aircraft type?

    At the moment I have added 2 sections for my 2 new designs, but.. I don't know whether to just drop them into the country sections and replace all the squadron badge designs...?

    Any thoughts?

    I was looking through your site Clave and I like the way you have it....by airplane type.

    I'm trying to get permission from the boss (my wife) to make an order with you. I just have to make sure we have the spare funds to do it. I would love to have a Flying Tigers jacket but I'm sure I can't afford that. Do you have hats? If so, I didn't see them on your site.

    Also, when I try to look at the T-shirts, there isn't a link to actually see one.

    It's all being changed around, I will put up links when I have fixed some more stuff.

    I decided after much deliberation, to keep the country as the first port of call, then have aircraft sections within each country...
