Not quite the exceptional standard and accuracy of the Prestige Suit shown below, but still a very displayable/wearable Flying Suit.

EXCELLENT!! RAF 'Prestige' Suit Reproduction

Accurate in almost every detail this is the 'best of the best' in replica RAF "Prestige" Flying Suits. These suits are no longer manufactured so are now just about impossible to find.

I have this example 'dressed' as that of a post-WWI Royal Flying Corps Officer complete with Air Commodore rank slides and an excellent copy of the RFC Pilot Wing. Neither of these are permenantly attached so can be changed.

Regia Aeronautica Insignia - Questions??

These pictures show three of my items of insignia to the Italian Air Force. Regretablly I've lost the information on the small Wing and the bullion oval around the Eagle of one RA Cap Badge. I bought these some time back and know the small Wing is a very scarce piece of Regia Aeronatica insignia, can anyone shed some light?

Since launching Bombphoons six years ago we have had the pleasure of supplying many, many exceptional pieces of Aviation Memorabilia to collectors the world over. Here is just a tiny fraction of the responses we have received from our customers.

Hi Ian,
I was just writing an email when I received yours!
The items were so well packed I decided to wait until his birthday today to let him open them. Keith opened them this morning and was overwhelmed! He loves them. I am sure he will be on the phone soon to find out more about more about all three items. Thanks you so much for all your help and for packing them so well. He is really enjoying his birthday. I am sure he will be in contact soon.
Thanks again, Karen - UK

Ian and Caron,
Just a note to let you know your package arrived here in NYC a couple days ago: in perfect shape: love the items, thank you!!!

Hi Ian,
Just a quick email to let you know the BoB box arrived today and you are right the photos do not do the box justice the workmanship is excellent.
Hope to purchase more items soon.

Hi Ian,
The goggles arrived in GREAT shape. They look fantastic on my most recent Roold flying helmet pick-up.
I am away from home on business this weekend but when I return home I plan on taking a few photographs of the goggles with the Roold helmet. I will e-mail you the photos and the photos of my Imperial German crash helmets.
I see many outstanding items on your website and look forward to my next purchase.
Thanks for the goggles.
Talk soon Dan. - USA

Hi Ian,
Caron was a pleasure to deal with. She ensured the fragile item we’d purchased was beautifully packed, and kept me up to date on everything at all times. The description of the piece was very accurate but actually didn’t do it full justice. So nice to get something that is even better than you’re hoping for as we’ve all experienced the opposite when buying on-line. Thumbs up!
Kind regads

SUPER RARE!! WWII Regia Aeronautica Winter Blouson

The only fault I can find in this wonderful Jacket is in the right sleeve lining requires a repair. Other than that, this Jacket could be worn today.

It's worth noting the similarity in the back shoulder flap detail, it is exactly the same as the summer blouson shown below.

Code: 53589Price: 750.00 GBP

SUPER RARE!! WWII Regia Aeronautica 'BARUFFALDI' Leather Flying Goggle Mask

Probably the rarest of Goggle Masks I've owned, in fact I've never come across another example of these Baruffaldi Goggles, so confirming their age of manufacture has thus far been impossible.

SUPER RARE!! WWII Regia Aeronautica Summer Blouson

Here's an item of clothing very rarely seen on the market. The condition isn't perfect but it does display extremely well.

The original Pilot Wing will remain with the Jacket.

COMPLETE!! WWII Polish Paratrooper Mannquin - Make an offer.

What I'm showing here is a fantastic representation of a WWII Polish Paratrooper. This came in as a trade item but sadly doesn't really fit in to my aviation displays.

This is a bespoke mannequin, made by its previous owner.

Put simply, I'm open to offers on this as you see it. We are willing to package it in one complete unit and it can be collected by your nominated courier.

MAGNIFICENT!! WWI Bulgarian Aviation Corps Wall Hanging EXTREMELY RARE!!

Measuring a HUGE!! 2000cms x 1650cms this magnificent wall hanging is truly one of our finest, rarest and most unique items of Aviation Memorabilia.

Given that Bulgaria has one of the worlds oldest and most active Air Forces I can only date this to the information given to me. I was informed that the piece was hung at the HQ of the "Vazduhoplavatelno Otdelenie" (Aviation Department of Bulgaria), and that the organisation was formed as early as 1906! I'm also told that the townscape at the bottom of the hanging is that of Sofia.

It's also worth comparing this Eagle to the style of the Eagle sculptures which adorned the entrance of Bozhurishte Air Base in the 1930s and 1940s.

It would appear that the tapestry is double-sided as the quality of workmanship is equal on both sides.

As with all of my more unique items I'm always interested in hearing any futher information relating this.
