The layout consists of an aircraft being the centre piece with various other
related items being added as applicable. These can be in the form of a portrait,
pilot biography, insignia, or squadron details.
Those familiar with the work of Virgil O’Neil will recognise the subjects as
being from his series of “Luftwaffe Aces Calenders”. There are sixty aircraft
from this source, covering the years 2002 to 2006.
The range is being expanded, with Allied aircraft of all eras being included in
the latest catalogue. If you don’t see your favourite aircraft featured, Virgil
is happy to do custom prints. An example of this is “Old 66”, a B-17 that was
done in 11 x 17 inch format.
Standard prints are 8.5 x 11 inch and sell for US$4.50 with priority shipping

The low price doesn’t reflect low quality as the materials used should ensure a
good life span if the item is displayed properly. Layouts are done on Epson’s
enhanced matte paper in combination with their “durabrite” inks.
The pleasant size of each item makes them ideal for framing or inserting into
commercial plastic sleeves for storage.

The artwork and layout of these prints is excellent. Reproduction of the colours
on my examples was very close to what you would expect on the original aircraft.
To provide some added motivation or maybe even a backdrop for your latest model,
these prints are hard to go past.
Thanks to Virgil O'Neil for the review sample.
