    Hi Leif,

    Thanks for coming to my aid! This subject is a little bit on the outskirts of my interest and knowledge, I´m afraid.
    Very comprehensive and impressive info.

    Hi Leif, and thank you!
    The information and images will be very helpful. Especially the drawing of the drawing of the Felix conversion.

    The B-17 made a very graceful airliner. Boeing, after the war tried to market them for corporate executive use with little luck. The one and only conversion was bought by TWA and it looked real sharp in the TWA livery. There are also many other civilian B-17's that carried very handsome paint schemes.

    I know that when "Shoo Shoo Baby" was known as "Store Bjoern" she carried some nose art of a man pulling some sort of toy. Do you know of any good photos of this artwork? Also, any information on colors used?

    Thank you again for taking the time to gather this information for me. I have found one of the great joys of this hobby is getting to know people from all over the world.

    Thanks and take care,
