Since I run a Dnural ( half Dnepr, half Ural ) I thought nose art that depicts that would be in order.

When I was younger I was heavily into RC scale model aircraft and used to spend hours pouring over books and magazines. During WWII there was a B26 Marauder fighter-bomber ( A "widow maker" that became an outstanding aircraft when the crews finally learned how to fly them) that was resurrected, in the field, from the fore end of one wrecked machine, and the aft end of another. They named her, appropriately, Half n Half.

But her nose art wasn't anything too clever. :(
