Hi, I am M

former helicopter engineer doing now something completely different but still interested in the sector and aviation and military at large, including learning to pilot ultralights before nanoparticulate I inhaled at airshows, flight test and any polluted city I lived in definitely spoils my brain

I participated in several projects that never happened, and some that in the end happened in a different form, incuding some with the ruskies I was helping fighting a few years before

Hello guys, I am PhilippeDM, a belgian book freak concerning Luftwaffe between 1910 and 1945. Sometimes very interesting topics are shown here concerning this period projects. So I am eager to discover this place a little further. I am 64 and on the last end of my business career, which will last a few months from now on.

Hi to everyone reading this,

I stumbled upon this website trying to find information about 1970s spacecraft/launch vehicles (and oh boy, what a goldmine this is!) and after lurking without an account for a bit, I decided to sign up, and I can't wait to learn some more about the obscure projects the talented members here keep finding!

Hello. I am a retired "senior" engineering technician, a product of the RAF's no1, 2 and 4 technical training schools.
During my mil career I [eventually] ended up as a AtA weapons, tactics and employment "expert" and in civil life qualified on the RAF's ground pounding stuff. Spent an enjoyable 4 years in and around southern france during the development and production of the A380 program, a time on renewables and finally as a mechanic for BA.

Definitely, if the Secret Project Forum has to make a in-person reunion, on your island it must be (guessing that you might still have a couple of barrels left)!

Welcome @Calumraasay. What is your channel?

My channel is actually pretty simple to remember, it’s just Calum!

I make videos on a big range of stuff, but mainly odd vehicles and niche bits of history.

Hello Everyone. I am Young Rok An from South Korea. I was born aorund the end of a century(1993). Have no job yet (Studying for Agrobiology and a public employee test).

I am just a light military mania. But I have many interests about prototypes or blueprints cold war aircrafts and ground vehicles of cold war era or WW era. The reason that I have those concerns is also to make some tanks using "Sprocket", the tank building simulator. I hope this forum has some assistances for making characteristic vehicles. Here is thr massive occean of knowledges, I think so.

Bonjour,
I'm Philippe-Nicolas 61 years old from France. Communication officer and published amateur historian in Ancient and Medieval fields. I'm also a wargamer. I'm currently digging in alternate history for which unbuilt and secret projects are a mine of ideas.

Hi Folks

My name is Paul, 49yrs old, located in Whangarei, New Zealand. Trained in mechanical engineering and spent my career specialising in designing ships using 3D software to model hull structure and piping systems. I am a lifelong aircraft geek, and a model builder besides, although I'm probably more interested in the history and development of these projects that got cancelled than in actually building models of them. That said, I would like to build a WW2-era escort carrier with some 'Secret Project' types of aircraft on deck, in 1:350 scale....need to keep the size manageable. Wishing I had found this website a lot sooner!

Hi @Woodsworks :

Welcome on board.
Probably you would want to start looking at the Nutcracker, an US VSTOL design for your model.
See below on the forum:


Best,
