    Default Norma Jean Dougherty, drone assembler.

    Sweet looking motor. Gunnery target drone.
    I think Norma Jean posed with drones, rather than assemble them.

    Looks like a McCulloch.
    Not with those nails and what appears to be a silk shirt. Both very clean. But a good inspiration for the soldiers and public.
    When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.

    Bunch of old white misogynistic cynics.
    It was on the RP-5 assembly line in 1945 that Army photographer David Conover saw a young woman assembler named Norma Jeane Dougherty, whom he thought had potential as a model. She was photographed working on the OQ-3, which led to a screen test for Norma Jeane, who soon changed her name to Marilyn Monroe.[16]

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Nice looking Irish lass. I'm sure they spiffed her up for the shoot, but that is an authentic looking ID badge on her slacks.

    Which lead to a sad, early death.
    There is a lot to be said for a "normal" life, fame and fortune is often not what its cracked up to be.

    Neither is being shuffled from foster home to foster home because your single mother is incarcerated in an asylum.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.
