Product Description

Based on designs used by the RAF and USAF during World War II.  Nose Art depicting pin up girls was traditionally painted onto the aircraft panels as a good luck symbol and a way of keeping morale high.

 

This is an original engine panel removed from an Armstrong Cheetah radial engine fitted to a Airspeed AS.10 Oxford which is a twin-engine monoplane aircraft developed and manufactured by Airspeeds.  They saw widespread use for training British Commonwealth aircrews in navigation, radio-operating, bombing and gunnery roles throughout the Second World War. 

 

The Art Work of a blonde girl wearing a blue dress is hand painted by Derby based budding artist Saskia Rose Bates using enamel paints.

 

Panels have only been lightly cleaned and polished prior to painting to retain that authentic aero salvage look.

 

Size 77cm x 60cm x 10cm deep
