i like it...the kamperstrahl lettering doesn't quite look "stamped" tho. i think cuz it overlaps the panels a little bit. just not as realistic as it could be IMO, but it's minor...looks great anyway

Brainstorming here:
This is not a step - what aircraft is complete without it.
A little weathering around the rivets and panel.
The diagonal element should be the ovaled version if at all possible. The diagonal really tells me aircraft and not ship hull (follow me?).

"THIS IS NOT A STEP" - if I can incorporate it without it being distracting, I like it!
The diagonal - yup, totally follow you - I'll see what I can do!
Weathering - great idea, and one I was contemplating. I just need to figure out how to do it!

Thanks for all the feedback - working on a version with Evan!'s ideas right now!

I just threw this together, but you should be able to get some decent effects, giving more texture to the logo. The only thing I didnt try was making the type look like it was engraved on but that shouldnt be too hard. You working in Photoshop?

I'm using Gimp. Currently upgrading my desktop computer to the latest alpha release of Ubuntu Linux that includes a newer version of Gimp that supports some better text effects.

(upgrading because I broke my stable OS installation by attempting to install the Gimp beta software...accidentally removed a TON of libraries and apps...doh!)

Alright, I've just about un-fvcked my computer. I'll get back to image editing...finally...

While I'm Gimping away, will a few of you help me with tag-line brainstorming?

My current labels all include:
A social lubricant brought to you by Yuri
I like that one quite a bit, but I'm not sure that it fits the aviation theme very well.

Ideas so far include:
Jet fuel for your social life
This ain't no flight of fancy
Slipping the surly bonds of macrobrews
Zero to Mach One for your tastebuds

I'm kinda leaning on the jet fuel/lubricant thing, but brainstorm away!

The semi-final design:



I didn't add any crazy text effects - I want it to look as if the words were painted on the side of a jet. I tried to go for an oil streaked, weathered look. Adding more words (like ACHTUNG! or THIS IS NOT A STEP) kinda cluttered the logo.

Thanks for all the help! Critiques? Slogan?

EDIT:
I was happy enough with this design to start making t-shirts. Click on the link in my signature

Here's the mousepad design I came up with for Cafe Press:
