    Yep!


    That's my idea for the 2017 GBs.... (thought it was a Barry W one....)


    A Nose Art project. :)


    Any scale, any subject and any mark. I will accept a "what if..." if you want ;)


    This is a call for all those great aircraft builders on this forum!!!


    Regards

    Polux, just to clarify your idea it's mostly about painting nose art on a plane ourselves... no decals allowed? 


    If so, I think that would be pretty difficult for most of us with our twitchy hands & fading eyesight! Not to mention that one would be building an aircraft just to add the artwork.


    It seems an overly ambitious concept to me.

    Not. I'm talking about decals....anyway, if you prefer to paint your own work...no problem :) :) :)


    There are some decals around or you can print your own ones.


    That's the idea ;)

    Fair enough, that would make things much simpler. 


    Still seems like a lot of work in order to apply one decal though, but that's just my feeling.

    Hmm I could be tempted though planes do have to be very tidy and neat.

    That's the idea Tony. 


    Any plane (modern or old).... you just need to add some nose art or nose art pin up...... :)

    You can choice the scale, the model, marks and the era.

    That's a blow....there is some superb 'Nose Art' on armour - particularily the Vietnam era.

    Sound's a good idea.


    I could do something like this...


    120mm scale flat.
