Below are a few samples of my Combat Aviation Art. If you have a particular area of interest let me know.

Miss Behavin WW2 Nose Art

Artwork on aircraft started in WW1 and continued ever since.  Each Aircraft had its own mark or art that was important to the crew members that flew these amazing aircraft. When I paint or decorate a panel, I try to use authentic recycled aircraft sheet metal or fabric.  These panels are a great idea for Reunions, gifts or presentation items.

Commemorative panel for George L. Sutcliffe P47 Pilot (Junior) was a World War II fighter pilot, honored for his many combat successes that were featured on the History Channel

An opportunity presented itself recently, I was asked by a volunteer  group in Alabama to reproduce the nose art of a Vietnam Helicopter that is  currently being restored to its Vietnam days. The picture above was taken in Vietnam, the one on the bottom is the painting I finished. They wrote me  "New door installed. We owe a big  North Alabama shout out to Don Mong in Rhode Island for the art work"!

In the picture to the left, I painted a replica of the artwork that appeared on the side of the aircraft flown in WW1. The canvas is aircraft Ceconite, makes a great effect. The Lafayette Escadrille (from the French Escadrille de Lafayette) was an escadrille of the French Air Service, the Aéronautique Militaire, during World War I composed largely of American volunteer pilots flying fighters.  This type of Artwork is great for a meeting room, hangar, or even a museum display commemorating an event

"Joker Guns at Your Service"

This is an actual panel painted for a Vietnam Reunion.  It was commissioned by a member of the unit attending the reunion.  The unit served in Lam Son 719 a famous Helicopter battle in Vietnam. 

 

Operation Lam Son 719  was a limited-objective offensive campaign conducted in southeastern portion of Laos by the armed forces of the Republic of Vietnam  between 8 February and 25 March 1971, during the Vietnam War.  The objective of the campaign was the disruption of Ho Chi Minh Trail (the Truong Son Road to North Vietnam).

The decorated bomber jacket became popular in WW2 when Air Crew Members started to use the back to commemorate their missions or unit.When I paint or decorate jackets, I try to use paints or techniques that may have been used during the period of the jacket.  This is a popular Christmas item
