  1. Numba 49! Ive been wanting to put a frame around one of the nose arts for several years, (nose "art"), but the right art hasn't come along, or I couldn't generate interest in the idea. A few weeks ago acft 104's crew chief contacted me and gave me the art that he wanted on the jet, so when I pitched the frame idea, they didn't jump on it, but they did like the idea of being radically different than the other nose arts that are out there.

    Awesome renditions of one butt ugly bird! The red paint does help it though Steve
  11. See- That's what I'm talking about, this piece gets interpreted in so many different ways. I won't tell what I was thinking when/during the process, only that it seemed to take on a life of its own. Who is Geiger? I'm not familiar with that artist Thanks for the feedback Steve
