By Aviation and classic sports car enthusiast Artist Darren E. Hall known for his Replica Grand Prix Race Car Hood Panel art pieces.

A SHORT HISTORY ON NOSE ART

Whether it was good or bad, blushingly naughty or PG nice, funny or down right insulting, during World Was II it was everywhere. It has come to be known as NOSE ART, because it was traditionally located on about the nose of a Bomber or other aircraft such as the: B-17 Flying Fortress, B-29, B-24, B-25 and even on some fighters. The origin of nose art dates back to Roman antiquity when the first charioteer decorated his vehicle so that it would be distinguishable from others. We then again saw nose art in modern times when bomber, scout and fighter crews and pilots began to personalize their aircraft in World War I. Many Fokker DR 1's, Sopwith Camels, SAE 5, Fokker DVII, and Newport 11 were wearing nose art or war paint.

The Nose art often was inspired by good luck charms, Disney characters, comic strips and perhaps one of the most popular and widely copied artist was Alberto Vargas. Vargas was the premier pin-up artist of the day. Whether it was a pin-up, a movie poster or a perfume ad. During the war, Vargas was the main artist for Esquire magazine, producing most of the artwork for the magazines pin-up page and calendars. I guarantee you that every service man at the time was very close to Vargas and his Pin-up girls. These images made their way across the pond and onto the noses of countless aircraft. It was this nose art and these images that separated a flight crew from the thousands of others that served together. If you asked someone even during war time if they knew who 256614 or 32546 was, there most likely would be nothing more then a blank stare. However if you asked someone who "Memphis Belle" was. Need I say more?

The artwork was usually painted by the crews themselves. Many crews had very talented artists and many more did not. Many of the crews had access to good paint and brushes and many did not. The quality of the images varies almost as much as the content of the images themselves. The sizes of nose art also varied from as small as a miniature card table to bigger then a Billboard as seen on some B-29's.

What you are offerding on is a replica of a WWII Bomber Nose Art Panel. These panels are made to look as if they were taken from the original aircraft. Each one is Hand Painted using the same sort of paint and brushes and techniques that would have been available to bomber aircrews during WWII. These are not airbrushed. They are painstakingly painted one brush stroke at a time. They are then distressed by hand to give them a tasteful patina that would suggest that they are 70 years old. These are not from a real aircraft they are entirely hand made. The panels measure approximately 28" X 33" and will protrude from a wall about 4" - 5". The panels are made from light weight Aluminum. Each panel is an original and unique, these are not screen prints,.

These panels make for a great conversation piece. and make for a great statement or addition to your: Home, Office, Game Room, Bar, Garage, or Hangar. These panels are guaranteed to make a much more unique statement then any poster could offer. A unique statement that matches your unique personality. These will be a very exclusive item as they are not mass produced , they are hand made works of art.
