Here’s another priceless piece in my collection. It’s a 21st Century Toys 1/32 P-47 Thunderbolt signed several years ago at an airshow by WW2 ace Barrie S. Davis.
Barrie S. Davis was born on Dec. 22, 1923 and died on August 19, 2014. He served with the 12th and 15th Air Forces in Africa and Italy in WWII, first flying a P-47 Thunderbolt and later a P-51 Mustang named Honey Bee in honor of his mother. He completed 70 missions, and his six aerial victories qualified him as a Fighter Ace. His awards included a Silver Star, the Distinguished Flying Cross, an Air Medal with 13 clusters, a Purple Heart, and the European Theater of Operations medal with five campaign stars.
