Our Mission

Our mission is simple - to provide avid collectors with unique, hard-to-find items that enhance their collections. This mission is what drives us to do everything possible to share our passion for collecting history. We do that by sourcing unique display models, exceptional fine art, and rare military artifacts that help one appreciate and learn about a different time. Our objective as a collector and advice to our buyers is also simple - buy the best you can afford and you will rarely be disappointed. 

As an avid collector, aviation artist, and award-winning model builder himself, the concept for Aces in Action was born in 2004 when founder, Craig Tinder, made it his mission to help history lovers find unique items for their display cabinets, bare walls, and war rooms (aka: man caves/she sheds).

Our Growing Network of Collectors

Whether you’re looking for a specific Franklin Mint Duesenberg in 1/18 scale, that rare Robert Taylor Artist Proof, or a vintage Top Gun fighter pilot helmet (from the real Navy Fighter Weapons School - not the movie), Aces In Action may have it, or know where to source it!

We buy collections from across the U.S., Canada, and Europe and our inventory is constantly being updated. Not finding what you’re looking for? Drop us a line at: info@acesinaction.com and let us help you find it.

We’re Passionate, Just Like You

Craig has traveled all around the world and has contacts that have sourced artifacts ranging from RAF uniforms in the U.K., Tiger Tank parts in Latvia, Messerschmitt Me-262 components in the Czech Republic, and commemorative barbed-wire sections from the DMZ in North Korea. 

Our goal is to provide our customers with a wide variety of new and rare vintage items, with the convenience of shopping 24/7. At Aces In Action, we still believe in the traditional mantra that the “customer comes first.” We stand behind every product we sell to ensure the utmost satisfaction to our customers.
