The issue I was addressing was more the ability to actually get the aircraft back after suffering severe damage, not whether the crew felt motivated to do so. The latter was a given.

Granted, if you have all engines out or an uncontrollable fire consuming a wing, your only choices are taking silk (if you have it) or diving into your target (which you might do if you the pilot are mortally wounded and everyone else aboard is dead), but they're another matter, and the same thinking in the same situation might occur to any pilot from any nation.

Hi Hikoki,

I bought the second book on Japanese Secret Projects on the 20th July 2014 on Amazon. It has been over a month and i have still not received your book and it says 'Not Yet Dispatched'. I am troubled and curious to why it is taking so long? Is there problems with your book because as i have not been notified at all? I hope you can respond as soon as possible.

Regards Cherry

I'm getting messages like "Please confirm you still wish to receive this order as we can't find it and will cancel it if not available by October such-and-such". :(

I don't think the book has been released yet, but I'm sure it's coming! Don't cancel your orders lads, it will be with us soon enough. :)

Hi!
http://www.crecy.co.uk/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=japanese+secret+project&osCsid=2f7b3c8223dae8988fe68bdfb30242e2&x=13&y=9

http://www.crecy.co.uk/japanese-secret-projects-experimental-aircraft-of-the-ija-ijn-19

Frequently requested and long-awaited, we are delighted to publish a second selection of fascinating, undisclosed Japanese aviation projects, including early pre-war designs, heavily illustrated with technical specification drawings and photographs. This is beautifully complemented by stunning colour renditions of the aircraft in combat and colour profiles of genuine markings and camouflage.

The last part of the book, the index, has been completed and turned in. So, chaps, it won't be long now!

Just a quick note that the book is finally at the printers and UK chaps will see it available mid-November. Specialty Press will be handling U.S. distribution which will occur in early 2015.

Also, Japanese Secret Projects 1 will be reprinted and will sport a new cover that matches JSP 2.

And I've been trying to convince them to revise the JSP 2 cover to more closely resemble JSP 1!

I know but looks like it isn't to be. Since Crecy now owns all the secret project books...makes me wonder if they will change their covers if they do reprints.

Is JSP1 going to be re-released? I didn't have the coin when it first came out and the prices now are totally out of my pocket-book's range.

These look much better than I feared. I suppose that the entire secret projects series is bound to be reissued in the same presentation. Pretty cool.

According to the U.S. Amazon.com, JSP2 is expected to be in stock in January 2015. Crecy will be releasing it in the UK (and I'm guessing Europe) next month.

"Next month" as in November 2014? Or as in February 2015, the following month?

I was told by Crecy that JSP2 would be released in the UK this November 2014 with the U.S. release being January 2015 (at least according to Amazon.com).

I suspect the cancellations were due to the Ian Allan/Midland release date of August which was the anticipated publish date. Of course, their selling off Midland to Crecy pushed things back just a tad.

Hi Hikoki1946!

Today my copy of vol. 2 arrived!! :) :) This is a nice x-mas gift to myswelf. Especially interesting ist the german-japanese aircraft (and weapons) axis (I never heard of a jap He-177 before) and the chapter about the nuclear research.
Btw.: I read on the back dustjacket "...the next volume in the series continues the story of the secret projects..." Does it mean, that there will be more volumes in the future. That´ll be great!!

Greetings from Germany

Hallo!

Believe it or not, I've yet to receive my copies of the finished book (they are are on the way, though). So, the draft of the dust jacket I have doesn't mention a third volume but only has the first volume on it. Not to say they haven't changed it since the draft I have.

Still, a third volume is certainly possible depending on how well the second volume does. More than enough aircraft left to make one with. ;D

Many thanks ED!
I get wonderful Christmas present today.
Much something to see for the first time for me is included in this book.
For example, Mokusei, Hitachi He-Type Bomber, Kawanishi K-100 colored side view drawing, colored three side view of Kawanishi KX-3 giant flying boat by our friend, colored side view of Kawanishi TB, mysterious H7Y1 2-side view drawing, G6M1, Nakajima B4N1 3 side view , etc.
Of course we need volume 3, we already get some materials for volume 3.
For example, Z-Koizumi, Z-Ohta, Z-final, Fugaku pressurized cabin designer’s impressive information, Nakajima seldom known pusher fighter, seldom known long range interceptor, seldom known 4 engine gun ship, Z-passenger transport(Koizumi factory design and Ohta factory design), Z-oil transport, seldom known flying boats (including my favorite glamour beauty Hiro H3H1 after modification type), seldom known seaplanes, twin engine Ki-73, Ki-65.Ki-91 with pressurized cabin, etc………
Of course we need many artistic impressions for these aircrafts.

Just received my copy of JSP:2 from Amazon here in Australia only to find that somewhere between the UK and here, I can only assume, it decided to catch some waves on a tropical beach. Surely there can be nothing more frustrating than receiving a book you have been waiting ages for only to find you can't even open the pages since they are fused together.
Heres hoping that the next (free) copy from Amazon gets here in a dry state and before Christmas!

Very sorry to hear of this! I can relate. In a former life, I used to be a Japanese comic (manga) re-seller in the U.S. and bought stock from a businessman in Yokohama who owned three comic/book shops. Of course, I shipped via sea to keep my cost down and after a month in transit, one of my boxes of books had been soaked by sea water. Thankfully, some of the contents had been salvageable but of course, some were total write-offs.
