No prizes for guessing the aircraft nose art that has inspired this pin up girl, The Memphis Belle:
This is a straight-up re-creation of the original artwork by me, it is such a classic that I didn't want to mess about with it too much. The background insignia again is an obvious one and is simply the standard US insignia. I'm very happy with how this one turned out, I was concerned at the start rendering such an iconic image. However, it all seems to have come together quite well in the end.

Well, that is eight in the bag and four left to go with the calendar girls! Something a bit more Warhammer 40,000 with my next piece of artwork.
