Dragons of Colombert by Nicolas Trudgian

A rare secondary market print by Nicolas Trudgian featuring Me190s of JG3 during the Battle of Britain.

Sporting the group's Dragon emblem on their engine cowlings, Me109E Fighters of JG3 scramble from their base at Colombert, near to the French coast of Calais. It is mid-August 1940 and, under the command of Hans von Hahn, the Luftwaffe pilots will fly a 'free hunting' patrol across the English Channel. Combat with the RAF will be inevitable.

It does though, have a couple of handling imperfections on the right hand side of the print, these are not noticeable from normal viewing but can be seen if you hold the print up and look along the surface - they certainly would not be visible if the print was framed. It comes with the original Certificate of Authenticity.
