Default The Things 'Ya Learn doing Research: Dan Rowan, P-40 pilot with 2 'victories'

In preperation for Pearl Harbor Day, was doing research on the P-40, since as many of us know: at least 2 flew into battle that day, scoring a few 'victories' against the Japanese attackers.

Found out that the famous comedian Dan Rowan (remember Rowan and Martin's Laugh In?) was a decorated WW II P-40 pilot in the Pacific theater, scoring 2 'victories' before becoming "seriously wounded".

Here is Dan's Wiki profile (but I found the link from the "P-40" profile):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Rowan

How about a P-40 modeled in his honor, with a likeness of a bikini clad Goldie Hawn artwork? Maybe wouldn't be scale authentic, but could be quite the conversation piece.

Well, I'll be dipped.

Loved those guys... and I'm all for anything with a 70's Goldie Hawn on it!

I assume one would use "wet" decals.
