Book excerpt: This new book by Artist/author Gary Velasco is an illustrated history on the creation of military aircraft nose art. This comprehensive volume covers the technical aspects of how nose art was applied to vintage military aircraft and the uses of materials, supplies and development of nose art designs as researched through discussions with surviving nose artists. The author examines and analyzes the WW II era b/w photographs and reveals their color content along with many never-before-published photos, thereby recreating step-by-step actual flying warbird nose art restorations for the first time. Fighting Colors is a graphic tool for all enthusiasts of pinup and vintage aircraft nose art. For artists, this book will outline what the masters knew when the age of sign painting, along with a little bit of imagination and brushes, was a common trade. For veterans and their families, Fighting Colors will serve as a source of reflection and inspiration for years to come.
