Several years ago I was fortunate enough to find an actual B25 nacelle panel. Shortly after I painted the “Tantalizing Take Off” pinup on it. In looking at it you might think it’s unfinished but this is no accident. The thought behind not completing the painting was simply to engage the viewer and to show that many “things” were left unfinished during WW2. When it was time to go fight everything else became trivial. How many unfinished nose artworks never came back to be completed?
This particular panel measures approx. 28″x28″ it has been on display at various art shows and was even hanging in the Chino Planes of Fame gift shop for a short time during one of their air shows a few years ago. I never could bring myself to sell it. Well, the decision has been made and the panel will be offered for sale on my webstore very soon. Stay posted for more details. In the meantime you can take a closer look here in these photos.
Thank you. –Will
