Default Hop Bomber - label and t-shirt

This is a design I've been messing around with for a label and a possible t-shirt. I'm looking for some feedback. Would you wear this?

I like the concept, but the silhouette looks like a DC-6. Unless you're a forest fire fighter, that's not a bomber.

Here's a link to a B-17 image that may be a good start:

Here's a different plane. A little grittier.

Very cool logo!

Similar idea to Port Brewing's Hop 15, one of my favorite beer logos

Combine the cartoonish look from the silhouette in the first logo with the B-17 shape in the second, and you have a winner!

+1, Agreed. Could probably just color match, fill in all the white spaces and add some props

I'm dying for some new shirts and would totally throw down on this if it were printed on American Apparel shirts (not white). Also: ditto what Yuri said about the cartoonish (i forgot the technical term) look of the plane.

I took an attempt to do it in inkscape...just trying to get some practice, my plane kind of sucks...I just wanted to try and do it in an .svg file so it would better transition to a shirt.
