Artwork that Tells a Story

Aces In Action also supports the restoration and preservation of many historic military aircraft. His art has been auctioned at numerous fundraisers to help raise money to restore historic aircraft back to flying condition, such as the B-25 Mitchell WWII Bomber “Old Glory” which crash landed in 2020. He also works closely with families to create commissioned art pieces that honor their veteran family members. Tinder’s passion for military aviation is further fueled by his experience restoring vintage warbirds and being a volunteer crew member with the Commemorative Air Force. Most recently, Tinder designed the Tuskegee Airmen granite memorial in Walterboro, SC, marking a significant contribution to their historical memory and honor. Over the past 20 years, Tinder has worked closely with aviation legends, including World War II Medal of Honor Recipient James E. Swett, Clarence 'Bud' Anderson, Archie Donahue, and Dean Caswell, among others, infusing his art with the spirit and stories of these heroes.

Aces In Action is home to an extraordinary assortment of military artifacts from around the world. Among these treasures is the only World War II German Ardie RBZ 250 Dispatch Motorcycle in the western hemisphere, highlighting the gallery’s commitment to bringing rare and historically significant pieces to the public.
