Tiltrotors get logos… and posters!   Leave a comment

A friend working for the V-22 Osprey Public Affairs Office informed me that there were no emblems for the individual services’ aircraft, so I created a couple, along with posters to cheer the associated Marines and Airmen on.  Go get ’em you guys (and gals)!

These are available for squadrons or PAOs working with either aircraft (the posters can be customized with your squadron emblem) for official use.  I’ll try to work on getting some stickers with the logos available in the shop

HMM-166 Helicopter Golf poster   Leave a comment

You may have already seen the retro posters I did for HMM-166 here and here, but I don’t think I’ve posted this one to the blog yet.

In short, my brother-in-law had some mechanical issues occur in-flight and needed to put his CH-46E down safe.  The closest spot was a San Diego golf course!  No one was injured and the aircraft was soon repaired and flown back to MCAS Miramar.  The poster commemorates this incident in a humorous way.

The golf club in the hands of the crew chief was a bit hard to make out, so I overemphasized the shadow a bit to draw attention to it.  The aircraft markings match those on the Phrog involved.

Hamburg sign   Leave a comment

Actually, just a piece of wood cut to shape and painted to look like an old German road sign.  It was inspired by a real-life German sign that a USAF family was graciously given by their German friends when stationed there (theirs is WAY cooler than this one).

Hamburg is very far away...

Hamburg is very far away from North Carolina...

I created it to commemorate the fantastic 6 months our wonderful exchange student from that city spent with us.  We miss you Lenia!
