Added 12" Army Air Corp circa 1942 style Roundels. One on top of left wing and one on bottom right wing. A nod to my Dad (and all the others) who participated in aerial combat during during that time. He was a ball turret gunner in B-17s

Looks awesome. Your Dad could not have been a large frame man. I have toured a B17G in Arizona and it occurred to me how cramped the fighting positions were in those aircraft. I can't imagine the noise of the twin 50 cal. machine guns firing on either side of your head while curled in the fetal position at -24C temperatures. In those days young boys were tasked with a big man's job. The sacrifices made by that generation for freedom & country is astounding.

I like it.  It’s a nice touch and a great way to honor you dad.
