The hugely successful Airframe Album series returns to its roots with revised and expanded new edition of Valiant Wings' study of the Heinkel He 219 that will draw from the wealth of new information that has come to light since the original publication almost ten years ago.

Airframe Album No 1-Second Edition. The Heinkel He 219-A Detailed Guide to The Luftwaffe’s Ultimate Nightfighter

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
