That is a lovely figure.  :-*

Looks like he hasn't slept since the Spanish war either. Great painting.

He joined the Falangue as an infantryman but got wounded. In hospital they found out he was a qualified pilot and the rest is history.

Being a Baron I thought so.

I agree.

He did the right thing in the end. flying against the Luftwaffe for the RAF.


There are some great aces in the SCW, and quite a few of the WW2 ones learnt the ropes there.
