Thomas A. Tullis - Tigers Over China: The Aircraft of the A.V.G.
Eagle Editions Ltd | 2001 | ISBN: 0966070674 | 90 pages | PDF | 31 MB
EagleFiles #4 supplements the histories and biographies that have been published on the A.V.G. Due to the author's extensive pilot interviews, his incredible amount of reference material on these beautiful airplanes and use of rare, original photos, the aircraft illustrations in this book are among the most accurate yet produced of these famous aircraft.
Combining that research with his own artwork, Tullis has created the type of reference book many have searched for, a complete compendium on the color and markings of the aircraft flown by the American Volunteer Group. Much as been written about the men and misisons of the A.V.G., but little has been published documenting the machines they used.
Tullis presents a complete color discussion, full color Squadron markings for the First, Second and Third Pursuit Squadrons, full color presentations of the six different Shark's mouths and the Chinese roundel National Markings.
Eight full color profiles, top and bottom views along with five black and white profiles based on the original photos are beautifully rendered by Tullis. Period color photos are among the 125 rare original photos, many published for the first time from original negatives.
