    Last February Marco77 posted a link to Romain Hugault's blog.

    I was blown away by his illustrations and immediately took: a plane (a P-51), a dame (the cover girl for his book, “Pin Up Wings2”), and for a name, used my motto, “Go For Broke” .

    I took these elements and did a cut and paste mock-up (I didn’t have Photoshop, nor knew how to use it). I contacted an artist who normally did tattoos, but wanted the opportunity to paint a leather jacket. I even had to lend him my paints since he didn’t have any. So this was a new medium for him to learn.
    I substituted Miss Lace for the nude nose art on the P-51 to be somewhat politically correct.

    He e-mailed photos of his progress and made a series of You Tube videos of him doing the painting.

    Romain may have been inspired by the pin-up girl on 'Hangover Haven' from the 401st Bomb Group, 8th AAF WW2.
