This model was requested by a donator who wanted a model in the spirit of the drawings that you can find on the nose of the B-17 Fortress and other bombers of the World War II. This is called Nose Art.

It was an interesting piece of work, with a special attention paid to the hair (a model of the fifties style hair is a big job). The almost mandatory bomb ridden by the pretty girl sits on a pile of clouds (I have progress to make in modeling of cloud 😉 ) for stability of the printed model.

This model is huge,  so I orientated it diagonally so it can be printed on a 150*150mm bed.

The size was necessary for a good print of some details like the high heels or the hair (beware if you scale down the model as I did not test it).
