About this creation
My second creation based on bomber nose art, the Memphis Belle. While it is not my favorite from an aesthetic standpoint, it is probably the most well know piece of nose art ever, so I felt compelled to give it a try.

Quoting Gabor Pauler Contours are great. I think the phone reciever is a little bit modernistic for the 1940s. I checked the net for various Memphis Belle nose art pictures, only on has this modern phone reciever all others have more old styled. Also in some pictures there are ribbons in the girls hair on others there is no any ribbon.
Thanks. I agree that the phone probably looks a little modernistic, but at the scale at which the phone is built, it is a difficult to do anything that would distinguish a 1940s phone from a 1980s phone. Perhaps I could have built it in black, but white was consistent with the source image I was using. Like many examples of nose art, "Memphis Belle" is based on a work of art by Alberto Vargas ("Telephone Girl"). The painters of the nose art no doubt varied the details of the original as they painted it on the aircraft.

A very realistic outline. Well done!

Incredible recreation of the original. As I said over on Flickr, I'd love to see more of this type of thing.
