Default Rough Red's nose art

My son painted the flying wine bottle for a bit of a joke.
As it is hand painted, each side of the cowl is different...but this is good as one can change the colour of the wine when ever the mood takes us!

Default Nose Art - where to find it

I have a design, but I need someone to do the finishing touches and then to actually make the nose art the I am looking for. Can someone provide me with a person/company that could help me out?
Thanks,
John

Look locally for an airbrush artist or custom car shop. They will have someone or know of someone who can do it. I researched airbrush artists on the Internet in my area and found numerous people.

Are you wanting to paint it on, or have a decal made? I went with a vinyl decal based on a drawing my dad made:

If you choose that path, the guy you're looking for is Greg Judy:

If you look at the right-most reflection, you will see where the face on Mars went! I did not notice it when I initially took the picture.

BTW, I searched high and low for this thread about a month ago, and absolutely could not find it, DR, you have any idea why?

Ha! So did I!

It wasn't until Dave scared it up that I was able to find it!

Alex, that apparition COULD BE an alien presence! It could really MEAN SOMETHING!

Sell copies on ebay, become a MILLIONAIRE!

Default Nose Art

After a year of flying (and 4 1/2 years of hearing "So, what color are you painting it?") I finally settled on a paint scheme that includes some much wanted art for the nose. Thanks to USA Aircraft Refinishing and Chris Cruz Artistry, both located in Deland, Florida for a great job. And, thanks to my terrific wife of 28 years, Sara, whose only condition for allowing me to place a pinup on the cowling was that I name the plane for her.
