Due to lack of interest, these will probably be the last of the US Aerospace Projects I release for a good long while.

Can't believe it!, I've have all of that and I'm still interested in more and more to the end of the days. Am I the only US Projects fan?

Please don't do that....

Why there's so little interestest in the preservation of US aerospace heritage compared with the other selected nations that helped to turn human's dream of flight into reality?

I'm really sorry to hear about the lack of interest ... very sad.

I'm going to buy this one just for this:

Boeing Model 754-4V: A very-wide-bodied cargo hauler for Husky

of course I've found all your publications very interesting.

You and about 40 other people. Not near enough to justify a months work. I'd make more flipping burgers at McDonalds.

I remain open to suggestions about how to spread the word about USBP in a meaningful way, but the fact is sales have declined with each new issue. Maybe I have saturated my little market.

I would put the 18 volumes already released together into a larger publication, and put a bit more effort into making it look pretty.

If Scott's interested, I would be up for doing the design work pro-bono :)

Unclear what "pretty" means in this context...

I'd be interested in what you might have in mind.

I have Tweeted a few times for my followers to head to your website. You are making a real contribution to aerospace history. Like an artist whose works become famous many years after I really believe your work will be recognized.

I think the layout and typography could be better. I'll contact you via email.

If all the entries were to be put in chronological order, it would make for a better reference. For instance, all those predecessors to the B-52.

This a clear drawback of US Projects series.

I've caught a few minor typos over the years and would be more than happy to make an editorial pass.

Not sure what you mean here. Do you mean to have issue #1 having all designs from, say, 1937, with each issue slowly advancing forward?

And all those B-52 predecessors *were* in chronological order.

Maybe they were in chronological order, but they were in different issues. My thought is to group them all together, as sort of a "theme".

Then this is your lucky day. USBP #16 was exactly that. It collected all the B-52 predecessors from #1 through #15, did some revisions, added a few more.

I did the same with issue #14 which collected and expanded all the WS464L (early Dyna Soar) designs.

It was always my intention to use USBP and such to build up full evolutions, such as the XB-59 which finally reached the ultimate design in USBP#18.
