Items are listed below; sorry don't have photobucket but I can send a picture to a personal email if you want to see a particular book. All of them are in good shape, no pages missing.

I don't need any of those, but, I did want to drop in and say "good job" to you.

This is a nice thing you are doing.

I tried to PM you but it's not working. I'd be interested in the B-17 Walk Around, the A-7 and Uboat books.

I second what TarnShip said.

And I think it's a great idea.  Maybe a separate forum for these kinds of offers?

On the bench:  Tamyia Mosquito Mk. VI for the '44 group build.  Yes, still.

Thanks G-J for the kind words. Lol, don't think we need a new forum though. Was scrolling down to this thread and just now noticed the "charity and goodwill" Dooh! :-)

To Rob G. The Ground War: Desert Storm is indeed by Jim Mesko. I do still have Victory Desert Storm you asked about and if interested, still have Air War Desert Storm by Lou Drendel and Desert Shield; the build up by Robert Dorr. My e-mail is on my profile. Let me know which ones you're interested in and I'll get them moving.

MRME, if you pm me your address the two B-36 books will be on their way. If you can send postage, fine. If not, enjoy them anyway.

Thanks a ton for doing this.

I wrote your name, FSM,  and "Christmas 2014" just inside the covers, so I will always know where they came from.
