Flygirlpainter does her thing on a brand new 60 Romeo for HSM-49, The Scorpions

Damn this gal does some seriously awesome work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She is doing the HSM-49 MH-60R CAG Bird as she has done all of the Helo Squadron CAG Birds based at NAS North Island.

I asked her if I could blog the progress of this project and she said to take them from Flygirlpainter at Facebook and to go for it. I have done two at already. Then I realized that not everyone reads that blog, so I am saturation bombing on a less regular cycle here at ATJT………………….

Please enjoy, my friends!

  1. Reblogged this on The Lexicans and commented:

    I thought The Lexicans would like to see this. Shayne is a friend of mine and she has a gift that allows her to do this amazing art work on these helicopters.

  2. She is a master! I remembered some finished work she did before. IIRC she does this gratis with military budgets being what they are – I hope they chip in and do something for her!

    1. I was so bummed last year when HSC-4 didn’t invite her to the Family and Friends Day Cruise on USS Ronald Reagan that day with OldAFSarge, The WSO and Me……Shayne should have been an honored guest.

      1. I would think considering what she charges the Navy that they would want to make sure she stays happy!

You may fire when ready, Gridley
