"Ted brings to his aircraft portraits a rare combination–the soul of an artist and a love of aviation. An artist will capture the grace, the beauty, the smooth aerodynamic line of a fighter plane; Ted does this as well, but he adds a close-up dimension rich in detail."

Dave Ostrowski Editor, Skyways, Journal of the Airplane, 1920-1940

"While the text portion of this book is excellent, the artwork is outstanding. Each airplane discussed includes a clear and detailed three-view drawing, and a stunning four color artist's rendering The detail of these elements make this a must-have book for those who are looking for great scale documentation."

Bob Hunt Editor, Model Aviation Magazine
