The spine's not the front cover though - it's part of the "everywhere else we can include it". I can see the logic of omitting it from the front cover (even if I might disagree with it), but the spine's a different part of the cover. I'm going to see that lack-of-hyphen sitting on my shelf very soon next to the other three volumes - can they get the hyphen onto the spine? Or have they already plated it up for printing? Or even printed it? I like the design generally though - nice and clean.Justo Miranda said:Please see the editor requirement :-\
The package arrived safely. I note you desire a hyphen between 'Focke' and 'Wulf'. For the sake of clean typography we desire to omit the hyphen on the front cover. Everywhere else we can include it.
Probably Methanol "M-Stoff" or Non-Refined petrol "Br-Stoff"athpilot said:...And the Eagle err the Focke Wulfs has landed!! B) At a first glance: it´s really great! Some examples: the stemmata of the Ta-183 on p. 57 is eye-opening. The two seat Trainer version Ta-183 S was completely new to me, just as the "ornithopter" by Prof. von Holst (great find indeed). I just only read a few of the texts so far, but until now I would say, that you contextualize your findings in this book the most. The drawing on p. 188 "german ramjets" shows among others the EMW A6 with additional ramjet. Is anything known on this type of ramjet. How should it look, what fuel was planned for it and how much thrust should it produce? Btw. the backcover is very cool. I like that style of aircraft profiles. Maybe you want to include something like this in your future publications? I would pay for it!
So far. Greetings
newsdeskdan said:My copy finally arrived this morning. I wouldn't say I liked it any more or less than the previous three - it's the usual blend of fact-based and speculative drawings, comparisons with similar projects from around the world and even a handful of original drawings. Justo's drawing style is unique, attractive and very redolent of those heady days in the late 1990s when the world seemed a less complicated place. I'm not sure about the writing - Focke-Wulf's TL-Jager Entwurf II didn't receive the designation Ta 183 until March 1945, and there was no A-0, they went straight to the A-1 even before the V1 (the Lieferplan shows the A-1 due for completion in mid-June 1945 and the 'V' series, V1-V10, to be completed by early December 1945), there were no plans for a two-seater or one with a radar in its 'nose' - I could go on. But the drawings are beautiful and that's why it's a great purchase. Looking forward to the next one!
Great news! The Panic Fighters will be released next february, won´t they?Justo Miranda said:On the workbench…
- ‘Enemy at the Gates: Panic Fighters of the Second World War’
- ‘Fighters of the Dying Sun: The Most Advanced Japanese Fighters of the Second World War’
- ‘The Ultimate Night Fighters of the Luftwaffe’.
- ‘War in the Darkness over the Reich : Luftwaffe Night Fighters of the World War II’.
- ‘The Dark Side of the Cold War’ that would cover the Sonic barrier, early Stealth and their U.F.O. cover. So far a project only.
- ‘The Rise of the Jet Fighter’. It would be about the first European, North American and Soviet Models and their impact in the Cold War. Also at a project stage.
If you're including the D-3802, I presume that you'll also include the one-off D-3803, the ultimate "MS.406"!Justo Miranda said:"Enemy at the Gates: Panic Fighters of the Second World War"
