    .Eismeer Patrol by Anthony Saunders.
    Knights Move by Robert Taylor. ( Yesterday I picked this up from my son's house and have to admit I am really taken by it much more so than I thought I was.)
    Off Shore Bombardment By Robert Taylor ( Prinz Eugen ).
    Aces High by Geoff Nutkins, signed by the unfortunate Anton Faber who did a victory roll over Pembrey and landed there thinking he was over his base in France, gifting a "190" to the RAF. Plans to stage a commando raid to steal one were then done away with.
    Wings of Glory by Robert Taylor, signed by test pilot Alex Henshaw.

    .....artwork makes the scenes seem more ''alive'', IMO.....the people look so much more ''''interested'''[ hhahahah ] ......of course the artists can give views/etc that sometimes photograhy can't ....the fjords are fantastic backgrounds ....I went to the fjords of Chile 2 times and it was fantastic ...I remember seeing a destroyer in some type of cove/overhang--far away from a harbor or town.....it was like a stationary ''shark''...why it was there I don't know
    ..those are very nice-thanks for posting

    Very nice indeed! I can only offer this one that hangs in my garage. Please excuse the glare and background reflection as I didn’t take it out of the glass frame. The USS Kidd under attack by a kamikaze.
