    Part of my collection includes signed limited edition prints. I started collecting the prints about 30 years ago and also had the opportunity to meet some of the pilots and artists who created the works. Unfortunately I would guess all of the great men who have signed the prints have passed away. Anyone else collect?

    This print "The Giant Begins To Stir" was signed by a crew member from each B25 that was part of the Doolittle Raid including Jimmy Doolittle

    Yes indeed - I have quite a few ( in fact, more than I have wallspace for ! ). Like you, it's given me the opportunity to meet and talk with many legendary figures, nearly all of whom have sadly passed on.....

    When I started I had a huge interest in BOB. I thnink my favorite artist is Robert Taylor and my most prized print is signed by Douglas Bader
