After losing his legs in an aerobatic crash in 1931, Douglas Bader recovered to become a fighter pilot with the RAF. A highly capable and admirable leader, Douglas Bader worked closely with Air Vice-Marshal Leigh-Mallory and the "Big Wing" strategic concept. Participating in the Battle of France and the Battle of Britain, Douglas Bader would amass 20 aerial victories against the Luftwaffe before being shot down over France.

While in captivity, Bader would later become the focus of the "Operation Leg Delivery", a mission coordinated between both the RAF and the Luftwaffe to dispatch new prosthetic legs. General Adolf Galland coordinated efforts to have legs safely dropped by the RAF for Bader in order to make his stay in Germany "more comfortable". Bader and his other allies were liberated in April 1945.

"Dear Craig, I have received a copy of your magnificent print of a F4U in U.S.S. Bunker Hill (CV-17) colors. It is truly marvelous and will soon find a place in my WAR ROOM in my home!! Best wishes to you and yours and I do hope that I can meet with you soon. ~ Semper Fi,"

"I collect a fair amount of military artwork rendered in all types of mediums, and so I also end up seeing a wide range of quality as well. Much of what is out there is rather mediocre. But every once in a while, as in your case, a true gem of an artist comes along. In my personal experience, both as a collector of military-themed artwork, and as a long-time student of much of the technology of warfare, your aircraft prints are among the very best I have had the good fortune to acquire. Above all, they are simply fascinating and enjoyable to just look at."

"The custom plaques arrived yesterday, not only was the process much faster then I thought it would be, but the plaques look absolutely great! I really love them and I'm sure the rest of my siblings will love them too. Thanks for doing such great work, the plaques will be cherished and appreciated for many years to come.On a slightly different note, I ordered a print of my dad's plane, it should arrive tomorrow, I look forward to seeing it too and am sure it will be every bit as fantastic as the plaques are,

I plan to check out more of your work, maybe there will be other prints I will want as well.

Thanks again for all you have done and continue to do.

I have just received the print of the A6M Zero and I just had to write to tell you how impressed I am with it. I have, of course, left good feedback for you but the space for writing a feedback comment isn't big enough to say everything I want to say. I really was stunned by the quality of both the artwork and the printing. I feel as if I can run my fingers over the undulations on the aircraft's panels - the whole thing is so three-dimensional. The print quality is second to none and even the paper seems to glow! There aren't many times in life when you buy something for a very modest amount of money and then find yourself speechless with admiration when it arrives but this is one of those times. Although I am mainly a Zero enthusiast I strongly suspect I am soon to become very interested in your other subjects purely because of the quality.
