01 Sep 2011: "Captured Eagles Vol. I" Book & Decals Ready for Shipping
We have received all books from the printing press and are now shipping!
We have decided to ship from Germany instead of from Switzerland, which means considerably lower shipping costs for you. As you probably know, the Swiss Franc´s value increased dramatically over the past months. This combined with an already expensive Swiss Postal Service resulted in very high shipping costs for our readers if we continued to ship from Switzerland. Therefore, we decided to ship from now on from Germany, even if that means for us that we have to transport our products to Germany first every week.

The first batch will be sent next Saturday. If you order before that, we can dispatch your book already on Saturday.
12 Aug 2011: Only 3 weeks left before ´Captured Eagles Vol. I´ is ready for shipping
Our first book is currently being printed and will be available for shipping in only 3 weeks from now!

*** Accepting pre-orders now! Shipping starts at the beginning of September...***

We have been working hard on the completion of our first book ´Captured Eagles Vol. 1´and decal sheets that feature the four most attractive German WWII birds that are shown in the book.

Finally, as I write this, the book is being printed and will soon be ready for shipping (within 3 weeks from now). It is a limited edition and each copy is numbered by hand. It comprises 72 pages in large DIN A4 format (210 x 297mm; 8.27 x 11.69 inches) and contains more than 90 photos (incl. several color photos), 8 color profiles created by the renown aviation artist Simon Schatz and 3 color emblems. As far as the author is aware, all but three photos have never been published before and show such rare birds like the Fw 190 D-13, Fw 190 A-8 with a Reichsverteidigungsband, Me 262s, He 162s, erla-produced Bf 109 G-10, a high-speed reconnaissance Me 410 A-3, a Bf 109 K-4 in US markings and many more. A highlight are certainly the first known photos of a Ju 88 G-7.

Further volumes are planned and if you have unpublished photos that you would not mind to share with us, please contact us. Of course you will get full credit in the book and also a free copy of the book in which your photo(s) appear.

15 May 2011: First model completed using Vintage Eagle's Decal Sheets
The first model that used Vintage Eagle Publishing's VE001D decal sheets is complete! The outstanding model was built by Roland Forrer aka Supermario.

In order that modelers can see pictures of a completed model that features Vintage Eagle Publishing's VE001D decal sheets, Roland Forrer aka Supermario kindly built the Fw 190 A-8 of Jagdgeschwader 2. This is one of four possible subjects that can be built with out VE001D decal sheet, which include both wet and dry transfer decals of the four most attractive birds shown in our book 'Captured Eagle Vol. I'

Some photos of Roland's completed model can be found in our album section.
