PT 156 had the name "Cowboy" painted on it. Does anyone have any information or pictures showing where the name was painted on, and in what color?

STEVE;
PT 156, is on the color video that Dick posted on you tube, you can't see the name, but what looks like Superman is painted on the forward cabin below the number.
Take care,
TED

Steve: I have a couple of shots of the 156 with maybe Bugs Bunny holding what looks like a polka-dotted carrot (go figure). This is on the portside curved splinter shield. Definately don't see anything suggesting the name COWBOY.

Wayne Traxel posted this on an earlier message. Think this is the image Will is refering to.

Gary: Yes, that is one of the two shots. I'll see if I can dig up the other one and post it.

There seem to be four vertical, crudely-rendered letters below the "Superman" figure's left hand on the 156's charthouse in the color footage/screen capture. Can't make out the top two, but the bottom two letters look like a "T" and a "D."

Don't know what any of that had to do with Superman, Cowboy, or that wacky wabbitt Bugs Bunny...
