Hot on the heels of our second edition of our Airframe Album No 1 title we are re-issuing our fourth Airframe Album title-The Westland Whirlwind- A Detailed Guide To the RAF’s Twin-engine Fighter as a second edition to coincide with the recent reissue of the 1/32 scale Special Hobby kit of the type.


A quick update regarding our second edition of Airframe Album No 1-The Heinkel He 219.


Print run has begun so it shouldn't be long now.


Owing to the weight of material we are increasing the book to 144 pages. Contents will include extra walkaround pictures, new and redrawn 3D isometric images as well as two kit builds as well as other information that has come to light-essentially a new book. There's no increase to the cover price and the preorder offer remains in place. Publication scheduled for early July. Just go to order. 

Valiant Wings Publishing’s next title returns to where the Airframe Album range started back in 2012
with a second, much expanded edition of our very first title in the series, The Heinkel He 219 - A
Detailed Guide to The Luftwaffe’s Ultimate Nightfighter by Richard A. Franks
The He 219 is a very popular aircraft modelling subject, confirmed by the fact that we had to reprint our first edition twice after our first run sold out in under two months. Much has changed regarding
available knowledge and references concerning the type so it seems right to re-introduce this title in expanded and revised format.
The modelling map of the He 219 has also changed considerably over the past nine years so this title will be a new book partly-rewritten, and expanded from the first edition to contain at least 128 pages packed with vital information that no active modeller and Luftwaffe enthusiast should be without.
It will contain:
40+ pages of technical information
20+ pages of walk-around images and technical diagrams
10+ pages of camouflage and markings
25+ pages of model builds and updated modelling information
150+ photographs including wartime images
Colour side views and four-views by Richard J. Caruana
3D isometric views of all variants by Jacek Jackiewicz & Juraj Jankovic
Specially commissioned extensive full kit builds by Libor Jekl & Steve A. Evans
New specially commissioned front cover artwork by Jerry Boucher
ISBN: 978-1-912932-18-4 RRP will be only be £19.95 per copy + postage
