Hi,

 

I was very happy to pick up this well worn Grumman Avenger Pilot´s handbook for the TBF-1 & TBM-1 torpedo bomber, it goes well with my Dauntless dive bomber and Wildcat fighter pilot´s handbooks, these handbooks were kept in a box in the cockpit........ now I just need an F6F Hellcat handbook.

Don't forget to Curtiss SB2C Helldiver.

Interesting manuals. 

Due to my budget I´m only sticking to absolute favourites ;)

I really like the Helldiver, found & sold lower cowling last year for a healthy profit.

Nice Helldiver find, you must have made someone´s day!

 

I´m a big fan of the Dauntless, just a lovely shape, I think it was my first plastic model aircraft kit around 55 years ago!

Nice handbook, they are rare! Congrats!

Thanks Jerry,

my budget gets in the way a bit, I nearly bought a Kingfisher pilot´s handbook a couple of weeks ago but it was $175 and just couldn´t justify it.

Here´s my 3 WW2 handbooks.....

These books are pricey from what I noticed. 175 is not bad anyway. 

 

Great collection! 

 

Would be nice to have a F6F handbook for my display :)

 

Take care,

Jerry
