Excellent! That's really knowledgeable and helpful. Thanks so much. There should be a way to compensate folks for help on this forum as I sure don't have any knowledge to share...at least here!

dont quote me on this , seems some started a protest about these so they where replaced with drawings , these where the replacement Victory girls and the far better known ones thanks to some wowsers , but hey .. i complain about the slide of morals too ..

vargas was the best known artist and left and joined Esquire magazine ..

but i'm a big fan of his bomber art and how i know about it all , he painted the B-17's we bought from you folks
