Well, thanks

Just one more link for now - Note: It's from a youtuber/streamer, but, it has some interessing "mouths" for its War Thunder vehicles (check only the War Thunder Antics for inspirations)

A fair number of these images come from an article called "BITE ME! The Story of the Shark Mouth, the World’s Most Enduring Nose Art" on the Vintage Wings of Canada site; an excellent resource.

Sorry, no. I found it in a google search.
I thought using the Bf 109 bumps as eyes was a great idea.

Flying Tigers P-51H + Italian Fiat fighters

I like this. I just found a RS Models P-51H that I do not know I had in the stash.
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I’ve always liked the A-10 with the warthog tusks.

The Z-37 looks like it wants to be an F6F Hellcat when it grows up! ;D

Can't think of a better form for a shark mouth than the L-39 (family). :smiley:

The Cessna's a bit psychedelic-Beatles-y. :icon_fsm:

I take it that's some kind of spin-off from HALO? ???

Taken from wiki:
"Although the visual background of Red vs. Blue was primarily taken from the Halo series, Rooster Teeth consciously limits connections to the Halo fictional universe. A special video made for E3 2003 portrays Master Chief, Halo's protagonist, as a larger-than-life member of the army, and the Red vs. Blue trailer and first episode establish that the series is set between the events of the first two games. Beyond these references, the storyline is independent, a decision that, according to Burns, is intended to increase accessibility to those unfamiliar with the games. For example, even though the cast of the fourth and fifth seasons include characters from the Covenant Elite alien race, Rooster Teeth never portrays those characters in their original Halo context.[3] Beginning with the sixth season, titled Reconstruction, the series begins to follow Halo more closely. It is established that Reconstruction onwards takes place one year after Halo 3 and several characters indirectly reference Smart AI, the Human-Covenant War, and Forerunners. Also at several points it is noted that Project Freelancer is under the jurisdiction of the United Nations Space Command. "
