Flateric hit the fact.

Anyway German is not a problem, at least for me... ;)

I'm seriously interested to reconstruct the drawings of the Junkers RT-8.
The only reference I had is a Gatland's book of '69.

If the projects are German why are the Dassault and Hawker Siddely ones in it?

I do not speak/read German so would you say that it has a good amount of pictures to be of interest.

Regards,
Barry

The Space Transport may be this one. And the reason, why it is included probably is
a co-operation, maybe with ERNO, as in the case with the similar Nord space transport.

Dietrich E. Koelle (* in 1935) started his career at Bölkow in 1961. He was head of the development of the ELDO Europa I third stage. Further projects he was involved: TV-SAT, Galileo propulsion modul for NASA/JPL, SPAS platform, Sänger program, 'landing gear' of the DC-X Delta Clipper.

What is the reason of your question, Skybolt?

I thought the author was H.H. Koelle, one of the youngest member of the German Team in Huntsville with Von Braun, head of the Future Systems at MFSC, manager of the NOVA an post-Saturn studies with contractors like Martin, Douglas (Phil Bono), GD (Erhicke), Truax. And BTW, father of the Neptune (which owes its name to Arthur Clarke "2001").
A remarkable person http://www.ilr.tu-berlin.de/koelle/

Well, if all else fails, amazon.de is always an option for a German book ;):

I'm a bit late to this particular party, but Dietrich Koelle is Heinz-Hermann Koelle's son. Professionally, he followed his father's footsteps and worked on advanced space systems studies and concepts, including reusable launch vehicles, at MBB/EADS/Astrium and developed an RLV cost model named Transcost.
