Book
« on: February 10, 2019, 09:14:18 AM »
Many have probably wondered what ive been upto ?
Well guys i have my head down working hard to put together a reference book on the USAAF .
And i have been approached by a publisher who has kindly offered to take the project on .
Im still working hard on collating information and photos but have been reliably informed that it will fill a hole in the colecting world of USAAF collecting .
Its a labour of love and im in no means expecting to retire early on any proceeds from its sales ( if any !!)

So there we have it , i havnt left or turned my back on my friends , just had to take the time thats needed for such a task . I do hope i have you on side in this venture ?

I better be in line for an autographed copy!  Seriously do not be afraid to ask for help or an item or two that you may need to photograph.  Good luck Littlebuddy!
