The only drawings I have, which are excellent, are in this book, which I cannot recommend enough to anyone who is a fan of the X-19 and the radial lift concept, Curtiss X-Planes. I wish there was a book on the X-22 that rivaled this book on the X-19.

BTW, thanks for the pics and brochure Mark.

Mark, you've made my day! The X-19 has been one of my pet research aircraft for almost as long as I can remember, and this is just fabulous!
Did you add the "Draft Only" mention on the PDF yourself, to avoid copy?

Thanks all for the kind words. I was rather surprised by how good a deal I had in getting the brochure and info. Thanks too Sundog for the link to the book. I remember seeing that book some time ago but had forgotten about it. Seems I need to add it to the library!

Enjoy the Day! Mark

The Army/Air Force Armed Escort/ Aerial Fire Support version is interesting, as is the Tri-Service Police Action/Coin Transport (no guesses as to which theater that was intended for!). The Model 30 CAS proposal for the Army seems to be a derivative of the former.
