Gregory "Pappy" Boyington is the kind of individual that legends are made of. With a colorful beginning to his Marine Aviation career, Boyington began his first combat tour with the legendary "Flying Tigers" under the leadership of Gen. Claire Chennault. After a dishonorable discharge by Chennault, Boyington eventually took up command of a dispersed group of Corsair pilots within VMF-124, later redesignated as VMF-214 "Black Sheep Squadron". Pappy Boyington led VMF-214 to an exemplary victory record, where he alone would rack up 26 confirmed victories (28 by other sources) against the Empire of Japan.

Pappy's luck eventually ran out when he was shot down and interned as a POW for the remainder of the war. A6M Zero pilot, Masajiro "Mike" Kawato would later claim credit for the victory over Pappy Boyington in his own autobiography, "Bye Bye Black Sheep".

Artist Craig Tinder, had the distinct privilege of meeting both Pappy Boyington and Mike Kawato before they flew West which served as a strong inspiration for the artwork "Lucybelle".

"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.
