Why did I spend two days making a “Big Bad Bun” livery? I don’t know either, but it was good practice, since I used my drawing tablet to trace over my original pencil sketch of the noseart. Sadly, due to the lack of B-33s in any game or flight sim, I had to settle for a B-24D. But hey, it’s something, I guess.

If the folks at War Thunder Live actually want it, I’ll post it there as well. For now, the livery can be found on my google drive, here:
