Adding to the discussions so far, I would love to see a post-WW2 French Secret Projects and I think there is scope for two volumes. In fact relatively little detailed information on French programmes has ever been published in English, so these would fill a lot of gaps. I would like to think that would also help sales.
As far as I know Midland/Ian Allan are interested in doing this but we cannot find an author. I cannot read French (which is a great frustration) but if required I could edit someone else's work. I do have a few original documents here but nothing like enough. I guess it might be possible to translate the Cuny books, but again that would not be easy and I suspect copyright issues would also have to be sorted out. At the moment I don't have a solution, which is a great frustration.
I think a post-WW2 European Secret Projects might be possible as well. I could cover Sweden, but again I would need co-authors for the other countries like Germany. These ideas can be difficult to bring to fruition because they need authors with stacks of reference material, drawings and photos, and with copyright clearance to use them.
Returning to French projects, can anyone tell me please what project drawings are included in the Mirage IV Docavia title and in the recent Lela Presse title on the Mirage III? It is near impossible to get Docavias in the UK. Many Thanks.
Best Wishes to all, Tony Buttler.
