Laurens van de Craats pictures for sale?
« on: September 23, 2014, 06:08:35 PM »
We keep seeing snippets of Laurens van de Craats' pictures taken on the transfer to Yeovilton earlier this year, and  when the first newsletter was received after that sortie, a cracking picture of XH558 was praised by me and others.

Why not do a special issue of these pictures, I would gladly pay more than the going price of £99? currently being asked for similar.

If not, where are these pictures, and what was the sortie for?

This would quickly generate more for the coffers.

Remember this?

I also raised the question of commissioning a painting, possibly to go into the one of the annual draws, by a friend of mine. I've enclosed an example of his work. His name is Dave Savage, lives down in Wiltshire.
I think this is a good idea and there is opportunity for a number of such artists to be involved.

What a superb painting! If he wants to do more, I have to ask the obvious question - how much would he charge & how do we contact him?

For Christmas merchandise that will come out in the mid-late October mailing and will then be promoted all through the autumn and winter.

I'm working on the very thing now....

Ian,

Are you referring to the Laurens van de Craats pictures or those by Dave Savage?

Sorry, the LVDC ones from the air to air. I'll have to speak with David on the other.
