Many WW2 era fighters sported popular pin-up girls, "Sleepy Jean" is a great example of the pin-up art.
The right side cowl was often reserved for the ground crew to add their pride to the aircraft.  Sgt Mohn choose
"Fearless Dick" for Richard Kik's plane.  Kik often attacked targets relentlessly with disregard to anti-aircraft fire.
