A lot of inspiration came from "A Story of a Flying Fortress", a documentary about the 25th and last bombing mission of a B17, the "Memphis Belle". The "Memphis Belle" took part in a great bombing raid on sub-pens in Wilhelmshafen, Germany. On their way they encountered heavy AA fire and interceptors. I'll be going with different Pin-up Nose Art tho...

Cutting heads off 1/2" diameter Steel Carriage bolts, to simulate the riveted fuselage exterior.

Using Jigsaw with 18 TPI cutting blade, with Carriage bolt held in Bench vise. I cut 50 bolts just under 20 minutes with this technique

I applied Flat Green :) 

 

The side panels are ready for airbrushing and graphics. I will start by adding Bomb KILLS on the lower panel and USAF Insignia on upper right corner.

I'm going to combine this 480 version of this 360 Overkill billet radiator grill with 4x Sniper grills, and paint it

Corsair mentioned they may have artwork for the Pin Up Girl..In meantime, here are some samples of Pin-Up Art I like.
