"Russian Fakes" :D :D :D

Yeah, I see. I knew most of them, but "men at work" were new to me. Thanks! BTW: In the german MUSEUM OF TECHNOLOGY (in Berlin) is the legacy of Fritz Trenkle (yep the "Radar-Trenkle"). He collected also several russian fakes, myths and stories, e.g. Ta-183 becoming MiG-15 a.s.o.

Great drawings in a great book! I'm sure! :)

Does the book contains drawing of the FW P.II early version? And all Flitzer project too?

Very much looking forward to this book.  Does the section on the HF-24 include the various proposed versions?  I remember seeing a scrap view of the front end of a proposed advanced version with variable intakes but I disremember where I saw it (German magazine, I think).

Cool!  I've already pre-ordered the book from Amazon-US and I'll be very much looking forward to it.  It should be an excellent reference for building some of the kits I have in hand.

Justo,

How do we order this such that as much of its purchase price goes to you directly?

With Steve Ginter's books, for example, I've found ordering through him directly is better for that than purchasing his books on Amazon.  Does ordering this through Fonthill work better toward that?

I am afraid the books can only be ordered from Fonthill.

Best regards,
Justo

The publisher always makes more money if you buy direct from the publisher. Whether the author gets more money depends on their deal with the publisher. As Steve Ginter is the publisher, it is always best to buy his books direct to maximise his revenue. Whether that means his authors get more money on books he didn't write himself - no idea.

So in this instance Fonthill get more money. Justo might or might not, but he will also benefit indirectly if his publisher makes more from his book in terms of future commissions.
