      Hey David,

      Haven't a chance to read through it yet. I'm skimming through it now. It does have a quick blurb on the 139 and 166. He does extensively cover the air operations during the time period, so your aircraft should be mentioned, as well as the fact he's writing from a Dutch POV. Do you have Bloody Shambles Volumes 1 or 2? Those are the only two books that I can think that would cover them. I had some gift card money from Amazon left over. I'm hoping to expand my library one book at a time. Hope this helps.

      Hey VB. Might be a while until I can get through the H.L. Hunley book. I started going full time at grad school, and the reading will keep me busy for the semester.

      Hey VB. Looks like we see eye to eye regarding the book. I do have a copy of "The Cruelest Night", on the Gustloff from 1979. Haven't read much during the summer, but when I finish it I'll let you know. Was pretty highly rated on Amazon.

      Hey VB!
      Finished "Death on the Baltic" a few weeks ago, sorry for the late reply. It was okay in my perspective. The author got her point across about the sinking of the Gustloff, the plight of the refugees escaping from the approaching Soviets, and the circumstances surronding the S-13's skipper. She did keep interrupting the story of the sinking with facts about U-boats and Soviet subs. Her style of writing may put you off, as she tries to place thoughts into peoples heads like a journalist. Still, gave a good account of the tragedy, and for the few bucks I spent it was worth it.
      Hope this helps.

      Hey VB!
      Thanks for the tip regarding newspapers. Also, I've finished my book on the Bismarck, and am now starting to read "Death on the Baltic." If I finish before you, I'll let you know of my opinion on the book.

      Dave, your sneaky man. THANK YOU JUST THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The books showed up today. I was amazed at the weight until I got the box open and two books fell into my hand.:lol: I am going to have to build a book shelf. I still have another from Amozon on the way to. Again, thank you so much, I now have enough reading material I may never get the models done.:lol:

      Hey David, the compressor is rather quiet, at least by my standards. I'm use to a 20 horse 50 gallon tank type.:lol: If I had to guess I'd say it's probably 40 to 45 decibels or so. I could run it at night in the basement and not wake anyone on the house.:thumbright:
