Damn, I don't even have words . . . strangest thing I ever stumbled on in the cyberscape . . .

PROJECT CAMELOT: A ROTHSCHILD SPEAKS OUT

Dame claims she "walked here from another dimension," that she was "rocked to sleep by Joseph Mengele" and that her father was "the head of the military part of the shadow government from 1947 to 1973" . . .

The scary part is, these nuts seem to drawn together under this "Project Camelot" banner!?

You know, she was living in Napoli in WWII when the allies captured it. I would have enlisted for that.

You're welcome. Looks like you can see the scar on her chin that was caused by a Allied bomb.

One of my profs in grad school, a delightful dude with a great sense of humor clearly of a "mediterranean ancestry" . . . one day we were standing in the hall chatting and this stunningly beautiful woman is walking down the hall. Looked like she was about 19 or 20 . . . not exactly a "dead ringer" for Sophia, but very similar type of phenotype: Sofia redux ca. 1995 you might say . . .

Well I guess my jaw must have been on the floor and my tongue lolling out cause Bradd (the prof) claps me on the back/shoulder and says something like "Down boy! My daughter is not yet out of High School!"

Probably a Texan Trainer. I had a model of one when I was a kid.

The Texan (AT-6) had a stressed metal skin, that's fabric covered. It looks like a primary trainer aircraft, but I'm not sure which one. Definitely a monoplane which rules out the Steerman, which is the best known.

That and the color is what intrigued me. And her glamorous look!

Some type of trainer or floatplane? Or were there any fabric covered floats.



edit: found this out

Miss Grace Weaver, a civil service worker at the Naval Air Base, and a school teacher before the war, paints the American insignia on repaired Navy plane wings. August 1942.

In the 1920s - 30s Lexington and Saratoga apparently had biplane bombers and in pictures posted on this forum they had bright yellow wings (IIRC). But women would not have been in factories then so I assume that pic is from the 1940s - but the aircraft could have been an old one being refurbished for use as a trainer.

The whole picture is surely staged for marketing/propaganda purposes? The woman was probably either the best looking woman the photography team could find at the plant, else a model they brought with them from Hollywood!

Surely that paint was applied in a more assembly line fashion, probably with sprayers and almost certainly with a stencil when it comes to the star (well, two stencils, first a circle to get the white on top of the yellow, then the star with circle blocked to get the black star legs).

If they literally had some dollish Rosie the Riveter painting all the stars on their airplanes we would've lost the war!

I think she and the pic are real. Ive seen paint guns and hand paint in pics. May have depended on the factory/facility.

Lots of women had that "LOOK" back then. 20s 30s 40s was HOT

I was thinking that refurbishing old fabric covered planes would be contracted out to small companies while the big ones had their massive assembly lines. A small company might not have bothered buying paint spraying equipment for a small, one-time contract.
Agree with the choice of pretty woman and staging of the photo for propaganda or advertising purposes.

They did this by hand with no gloves - and had their nail polish on! That's confidence - I get paint all over my hands when I use a brush!
