Shouldn't be too long. Say, about the time SLS is regularly flying NASA astronauts to Mars. So there surely won't be any unforeseen delays or needless stalling.
Ah, long about the "Twelfth of Never", then?

Naw, naw, any day now. Really and for true. My promise of speed is as trustworthy as a politicians claims.

And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing

Ah, the "real soon now" beloved of software developers. :)

No importa, I'll purchase it when it becomes available.  What you have posted might be enough to do something in 1/144 scale.

Actually, the B-47 diagrams have all been scanned. But given that it's 3:39 in the morning...

I'm about a third of the way through this book, and I think it is excellent. The text is interesting and generally well-written. The photographs are excellent, at least compared to some similar titles I have picked up recently. Highly recommended.
