  1. I presume that you mean Libor's excellent Building 1/72 Scale Aircraft?
  2. Did you miss Airframe Album No 7-The Arado Ar 196 first time round? If so, you are in luck. A few copies have been located and these are now available to order from our website at the original price of £15.95 plus P&P. Ignore the 'Out Of Print' banner on the cover. They are there and available. Get in quick. There aren't that many and they will go fast.
  3. Thanks Paul. Received and mailed last week. Stay healthy.
  4. You may be aware that we carry a range of new and pre-owned kits, most of which have been used for reference material for our books and are now surplus to requirements. We have been running a sale on all kit items for the past month. Our pre-owned kit special offer is coming to an end tomorrow and we still have a few left.. It's your last chance to save 50% on rare items that you promised yourself one day.(this includes some hard-to-get CMR Spitfires and Vampires) . The good news is that we have more coming in time for the weekend, and we have extended our new kit offer by another month. Alleviate your lockdown blues and get searching. https://www.valiant-wings.co.uk/kit-special-offers-53-c.asp Finally, did you miss AM12-The Supermarine Spitfire (Merlin-powered) first time round? It is now out of print but we do have a quantity of books that we delivered to us misprinted, affecting PP72-80 of the C&M section. These are available to clear at a very special price, post free. This might make a useful workbench companion as well if you don't want to mess up your perfect copy. Full details are here. https://www.valiant-wings.co.uk/imp-airframe--miniature-no12-4594-p.asp
  5. First, and most important, I hope that you are all remaining healthy. Here at Valiant Wings we are maintaining a business as usual stance. We are continuing to fulfil orders and mail books and other products worldwide subject to local restrictions. We have reduced our regular mailings to once per week to keep within current guidelines and reduce risks to both ourselves and Royal Mail staff. Just check our Facebook page and website home page for any updates. Our next Airframe & Miniature title on the Ju 87 Stuka is now in production and is due to be with us week commencing April 20th. We will be operating with reduced staffing levels so it may take a bit longer than usual to get books into the mail. Please bear with us. If you are on the way to clearing your Shelf Of Doom and need a new project to get your teeth into check out our new and secondhand kit clearance offers. https://www.valiant-wings.co.uk/kit-special-offers-53-c.asp Plus if you missed our Merlin-engine Spitfire book first time round we have a quantity of imperfect books available at a reduced price post free. https://www.valiant-wings.co.uk/imp-airframe--miniature-no12-4594-p.asp Finally, if you are short on tools or materials we can provide them too https://www.valiant-wings.co.uk/tools--accessories-2-c.asp Stay safe. Keep modelling.
  6. Owing to cancellation of the Poole Vikings show you won't be seeing us there. Currently Modelkraft 2020 is still on and that will be our next appearance. We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, if you live in the MK, NN, CB, PE and SG postcode areas you can always pay us a visit to stock up on Mr Hobby and other materials that you can't get through the post. as well as pick up any of our books and more besides. You can contact us via our Facebook page, email or via our website www.valiant-wings.co.uk.

We are normally at our warehouse on Mondays and Thursdays from 2-4pm and can open up for you at weekends. If you are making the trip it is worth taking in The Model Box in Barton-Le Clay and Osbornes in Rushden-both different but excellent shops to visit. There is also the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden not too far away.
