Great find my dear Blackkite.
Oh!!CherryBlossom said: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.
Hikoki1946 said: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!Hikoki1946 said:Also, Japanese Secret Projects 1 will be reprinted and will sport a new cover that matches JSP 2.
Hikoki1946 said: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.

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

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.

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!
