Czech Air Force applied this scheme on their Mi-24 in order to honour Czech and Slovak airmen serving within the Coastal Command on B-24.

You could buy one, build & paint it up... then in a year, re-do the markings and change the nose art... with the photos posted above, you could literally do one a year for many years to come. And it would look fantastic in this scale.

One of the best things about the B-24 is that the nose art was by far the best out of all the big bombers.
I guess that big flat side worked well with the artists.
There's some real masterpieces in there.

During the Flanders modelshow in Antwerp last Saturday I noticed the fuselage halves of an ID-models Liberator sticking out someone's bag. Crude now :mental: :hmmm: :frantic:

Yup, today those kids painting like that would be arrested and jailed for 20 years.

Maybe those kids painting on the walls and those, doing noseart have the same age...

Yes, they're the same age, but the kids painting on bombers were men, doing a man's job, and here at least the almost-men doing the vandalism on overpasses, railway cars, and buildings are nothing but common criminals.
