Thanks George, glad you like it. The T90 is definitely a candidate for a second volume, assuming this book does well enough to justify it. There's also another T80 preliminary study I'd like to illustrate; hopefully I'll get a chance to do it.

Looking forward to that Jared.  A similar vehicle in terms of aerodynamic profile, and similarly obscure, would be the Porsche Typ 114 Berlin-Rome racer with a mid-mounted V10.

I have not recieved the book as yet, although the publishers have sent me the full jacket. But no publication date.

Look what came through from the Book Depository this morning (see attached)!

I don't think Justo would appreciate a review from me - particularly on the Daimler-Benz 'projects' section - but suffice to say it's classic old skool Luft 46 fare with lots of the usual painstakingly-drawn speculative diagrams showing what might have been.

IPMS USA have put a comprehensive and very positive review of BSP5 on their website
Sorry if this has already been mentioned elsewhere.

Hi All.
Thought you might like to know that I have just completed the index for the BSP1 Second Edition. So I think it should be going to print pretty soon. And I would hope that the late April date for availability should be fairly close.
And, in case you are interested, I am just over half way through the full revision of BSP2: Jet Bombers. Not so much new information in this one, though there are some new drawings (and text) plus one or two that were accidentally omitted from the first edition which I did not spot in the proofs all those years ago. Sorry about that. Lots of new photos as well.
Very best wishes to you all. Tony.

Looks great.  I will definitely get a print copy for myself.

The friendly UPS dude just dropped off my copy.  I've only thumbed through it but it looks to be very good.

The T80 LSR derivatives are fascinating.  Mercedes also looked into a shrunken version of the T80 for Grand Prix racing and Rekordwoche competition under the proposed post-1940 formula.  The T90 was a fully enclosed mid-engine four-wheeler using either a 1.5-liter V-12 or 3-liter V-24, depending on which version of the engine formula was implemented.  The one drawing in Ludvigsen's "Quicksilver Century" shows a lot of Porsche and Mickl influence.

Thank you - it was a lot of work, but I think it turned out beautifully.
