27th Seabees

Sporting the very popular Bugs Bunny character this Superfort was named to honour the 27th Seabees who served at Tulagi, Guadalcanal, New Zealand and New Caledonia. On the left side the B29 carried a beautifully rendered Varga nude and the title "Dangerous Lady". Just below the cockpit window the Ed Cox pilot's name was written together with decorative scroll containing the name of the crew chief "Kid" McCoy - The Missouri Mule.
