A WASP delivers a corsair to Pappy Boyington's squadron.  Taking a cigarette break, she stands in front of one of the more decorated Veteran Corsairs of the Squadron.  Many historians would say this picture is pure "Good Girl" fantasy.  But I say no, there were many WASPs of color, Ola Mildred "Sexy Rexy" Rexroat(Full Native American) and Hazel Ying Lee (Chinese American) were among them.  Just some suggestions, maybe the start of a good story?

Beautiful Corsair. And not to sound weird, but the pilot looks eerily similar to what I imagined one of my anthro OCs to look like humanized.

Beautiful work on the US Navy Corsair, this was one hot plane in its time. And you used the red-surround national emblem which was only around for a very short period in 1942-44. Personally I do like it, it gave a bit of flavor to the emblem, it was later changed to be more consistent with other US aircraft.

By the way, the Navy calls them aviators, not pilots - that's an Air Force term. The young lady would either be a Naval or Marine Corps AVIATOR. Think of it this way: Any PILOT can land on a flat field that is not moving -- but only an AVIATOR can land on a deck that looks like a postage stamp from 5000 ft., and is pitching and rolling and bobbing up and down all at the same time. That's the difference!
