This place is beautiful.
I had noticed that and got into the SST thread. There's a lot of pictures I haven't seen before!

Hello Mr Douglas,Hi everyone,
I`m an engineer writing a book about WW2 fighter aircraft piston engine development - in fact to be published by
a fellow member on the forum Dan Sharp early next year.
I`m interested in engine applications, which of course applies to lots of drawing-board only aircraft which never flew.
If you want to know something about WW2 piston aero engine development there is a pretty good
chance I can help, sadly as I`m not a pilot I can`t consider myself any sort of expert on flight
or flight characteristics, so I am always interested in learning more on that aspect.
Looking forward to being able to contribute, and will try to keep shameless self publicity of my book
to sensible levels.
I sometimes make YouTube vids on aero engine theory, and recently re-drew the Mukulin AM35/38 supercharger swirl
throttle from wartime drawings, and 3D printed it (the ring-gear which actually moves is hidden in this shot)

All the best
