I would like to connect with Steve Wolf. A veteran P-47 pilot (Dick Brennan) gave me his copy of the Dynamite Gang: The 367th Fighter Group in WW2. It's the unit history of the squadron Jack Hallett flew in and his Thunderbolt is pictured. I've had this book for 25 years and would like to donate it to Steve for his P-47 project. Please PM me if Steve would like to make contact. Thank youThe 60% scale P-47:
