Valiant Wings Publishing’s next title returns to where it all started for them ten years ago with a second, much-expanded edition of thier very first title - called "The Messerschmitt Me 262 - A Complete Guide To The Luftwaffe’s First Jet Fighter" by Richard A. Franks. This will be the sixty-second book that they have published in their ten-year history.

The Me 262 is a very popular aircraft modelling subject and our much-expanded second edition will go some way towards unpicking the bewildering choices of variants and schemes that apply to the type.

The modelling map of the Me 262 has changed considerably over the past ten years, so this title will be a new book-rewritten, completely redesigned and expanded from the first edition to contain at least 180 pages packed with vital information that no active modeller and Luftwaffe enthusiast should be without.


This volume contains:
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
200+ photographs including wartime images
Colour side views and four-views by Richard J. Caruana
3D isometric views of all variants by Jacek Jackiewicz
Specially commissioned extensive full kit builds by Libor Jekl & Steve A. Evans
New specially commissioned front cover artwork by Jerry Boucher
Bonus set of 1/48th scale plans not available with the first edition
