Boobs and Warbirds: the Art of Romain Hugault

I did a search for Super Eterndard girls, and only found this:



She may or may not have connections with Dassault or the Marine Natationale. I have no idea of her name, nationality, or occupation, but the picture is nice.
Here you are; a Super Etendard and a female Marine Nationale pilot

I remember the last British Army & Navy Equipment Exhibition (before it became DSEi) in 1997.

Pilkington (as was) had a stand not far from Dassault. The French had some lovely young ladies in short dresses and high heels handing out gizzits, Pilkington had the thermal imaging sensors that were part of my tasking. (Thermal imagers, inertial navigation systems, ruggedised connectors... it was non-stop excitement back then, let me tell you)

It turns out that a good thermal imager can allow the operator to tell which of the young ladies are wearing tights, and which had opted for stockings...

I don't think her occupation is in doubt, and the fact she can still walk means she's only visited a pilot.

Unfortunately, as time goes by, the number of boobs has been decreasing gradually in Hugault's comics.

In its last book (Angel Wings #6: Atomic) , there is not a single boob in sight apart from a distant nose art on a bomber, which is more than unfortunate. I suspect Mr Hugault has received orders from his editor to tone down the boobie side IOT hit a larger audience in those "Me too" times.

As the storyline has always been the weak side of those albums, the absence of naked well endowed women which represented, as far as I was concerned, 50% of the reasons to buy those comics, is the final nail in the coffin and I probably won't be buying the next book unless there is a drastic shift of editorial guidelines...
Totally agree. The start of Angel Wings was promising, but the 2nd cycle was rather disappointing. The brief, innocent nude scenes moved to the (expensive) special, limited editions too.

The start of third cycle (a dyptich), with Angela McCloud during the Korean war, is planned for Autumn 2021.
This year in May Romain Hugault intents to release, after an absence of about 5 years, Pin-up Wings volume 5.
Perhaps his way to still publish some nudity, as being no longer in aviation series Angel Wings.

I personally doubt If there will be a 3rd Angel Wings cycle: monsieur Hugault shows via social media an Angel Wings fatigue, aka looking for new projects/challanges, like stand-alone drawings for aviation magazines and books, aviation posters, calendars, etc. Let's wait and see...

More boobs.
 
More new boobs, not rehashed ones :)
I'd be surprised if boobies were to return in more than a token form. Hugault's Twitter, which seems to not have been used for almost 2 years, used to be full of various re-Tweets of very large breasted adult models or porn stars. They seem to have all been removed, probably as part of a general clean-up.

Time to close the thread then ;)

Because of the #MeToo - hysteria? Try : Romain Hugault (Facebook)

Yes, and also maybe a matter of "respectability" and....money. When you get contracts from firms like IWC, I suppose you start thinking it's not worth losing 1000s of CHF or EUR for some drawings that may (will?) be held against you by some hysterical lobbyist further down the line.

Yep! We share the same opinion.

Meanwhile Amazon.fr has removed Pin-up Wings - vol. 5 ( release-date was: May 13, 2020). They no longer take pre-orders... Cancelled?
