And FW-190s.
The Fly-boys weren't the biggest issue, the trigger-happy ground gunners were.

You will also recognize the yellow/gold stripes on Korean War-era F-86 Sabres.
To set them apart from the very similar MiG-15.

That got me thinking, and in a long string of Google searches I remembered the Black Widow. My uncle helped me build a model of one about 15 years ago. Really cool color scheme (or lack thereof), and likely easy to convert to an automobile.

Sorry - I almost choked on my spaghetti with that comment

The numbers are random numbers. I slapped these two images together quite sloppily .

I'd love to paint a car in digital camo. Some people hate the new army uniform but I love it. I have a full suit in that pattern and I'm not even in the army.

The boattail/kammbacks with fighter jet schemes are great!

Actually, the whole purpose of this was to make our cars MORE visible, not invisible.
Day-glo stripes and bright yellow on black checkers would help a boattail to get noticed by cell phone drivers.
Checkers and flat paint also break up any surface irregularities .
If a car was painted in digital camo, it would become a hazard.
Already, we drive slower than most everyone, so the last thing we need is to also not be seen.
Just look at the belly tank on that F/A18 . It is unrecognizable even sitting still.

I agree though that a car would look 'cool' in digital camo, but I want to be seen :-)
