Default Boobs on the nose of a Desert Storm CH-53E.....have pictures, need input


Through Facebook, I was able to acquire photos of more CH-53E's from HMH-466 that had images painted into the camouflage schemes. One in particular had large breasts, the torso and open legs of a female painted on the nose. The RWR antenna's served as the nipples of the breasts.

Now, here is the problem......the aircraft never flew a single mission with that artwork on it. According to the Marine that painted it, he felt it was a bit over the top and covered it up when finishing the new paint job. He plans on sending me his notes to confirm the BuNo/Modex, as well as the colors he used (they were house paints provided the Saudi's).

Knowing the aircraft never actually flew with these markings, would you still buy a decal sheet with them included? There would of course be other options on the sheet, including one with the Playboy Bunny painted on the port side of the forward fuselage.

Let me know what you think.

Thank you,
