——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–



Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.

——————- ABOUT ME —————–



Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
