Welcome to our Garage Sale. We often receive prints from collections we purchase in damaged condition due to improper storage or handling. Usually the "hangar rash" is such that the print can still be framed and enjoyed. Our policy is to fully disclose all known flaws on the prints we sell. Our preference is to provide you with prints in excellent condition. However, sometimes bad things happen to good prints.

All Garage Sale prints are offered "as is".

Please see our About Me page for News and check out our eBay My Stores Logo listings for a wide selection of artist and aircrew signed aviation art. Other prints are available at our website - follow the link on our About me page. Thank you.

Limited edition aviation art print Winter Patrol signed in pencil by GUNTHER RALL, DIETER HRABAK, WALTER WOLFRUM and artist NICOLAS TRUDGIAN. This print depicts Messerschmitt Me109 fighters from JG 52 as they return to base at low altitude through a spectacular valley. A very well done rendition of the Bf109 fighter and a well composed winter landscape.

General Dieter Hrabak (125 victories) was one of the Luftwaffe’s most respected and popular leaders. He scored his first victory in the Battle of France and achieved 15 more during the Battle of Britain. On Eagle Day he was commander of II./JG 54 which he led until taking command of JG 52 in 1942. He was the first JG 54 pilot to be awarded the Knight’s Cross.

Generalleutnant Gunther Rall (275 victories) scored his first victory during the Battle of Britain and was leading 8./JG 52 by July 1940. After transfer to the Eastern Front he accumulated victories at an astonishing rate. After recovering from a crash he assumed command of III./JG 52 and fought to become the world’s third highest scoring ace behind only Hartmann and Barkhorn. He earned the Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords.

Oberleutnant Walter Wolfrum (137 victories) first saw combat in the Crimea with 5./JG 52. Wounded many times, he took command of 1./JG 52 in May 1944 and fought in the defense of the Ploesti oilfields. He commanded 1./JG 52 until the war’s end, having flown 423 missions and earned the Knight’s Cross.

The photo does not do the print justice. Note that the digital photo has been altered; aircraft markings on the actual print are historically accurate. This print is long SOLD OUT and now scarce on the secondary market. Winter Patrol was limited to 1250 signed and numbered copies. In our view, a superior Nicolas Trudgian print authenticated by the signatures of significant Luftwaffe pilots. Overall print size is approximately 36 by 24 inches and the COA is provided. Print condition is very good but NOT excellent due to a minor lower left corner crease and left border crease as shown in the digital photo that will not show when the print is framed. This print has never been framed and has been stored flat in acid-free materials.
