Nose Art Decals

Decals, Stickers, Tattoos, Photographs, Pins, Lighters and More of popular pin up girls from WWI and WWII. As most people may know, nose art (airplane nose art, aircraft nose art, bomber nose art) is just about as old as aviation itself. It is well known that pilots in WWI and WWII made it a tradition to modify the noses of their aircraft with illustrations of popular cartoons, animals, and of course, vivacious pin-ups from back home. For young pilots and mechanics serving their country, most of them young men, nose art was a much needed morale booster. Here are some listings of the popular nose art decals available for purchase online at eBay.

Aircrews in World War II decorated their planes with pictures of pinups and pretty girls, typically modeled after the "cheesecake" art of Gil Elvgren, Alberto Vargo, and George Petty. It was (and still is) an interesting practice. Some see a deep, psychological impulse - attaching a talisman, a good-luck charm, to the aircraft as a way of warding off evil, death, and bullets. I don't know. Maybe the young guys just liked looking at pictures of pin-ups.  Read More on WWII Nose Art
