The Tri-Jet DC-10 based design has been dropped from the cover of American Secret Projects 2 and been replaced with a canard Turbo Prop(?) design I've never seen before, should be available now according to Amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/American-Secret-Projects-Vol-Airlifters/dp/1910809160/ref=pd_rhf_ee_s_bmx_0_5/254-3873926-9056967?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=1910809160&pd_rd_r=1b2417c2-fc1c-4e0a-ab81-da3fd2441de3&pd_rd_w=wbKdL&pd_rd_wg=8SLsK&pf_rd_p=70d9470b-9d85-4fe7-9bbb-328c0b835955&pf_rd_r=CMV0F7ENFF9RSGP0RZYD&psc=1&refRID=CMV0F7ENFF9RSGP0RZYD

Judging by the shape of it could be a Fairchild design?

It's a pity they didn't tell me, am I meant to be clairvoyant?  :banghead:

Amazon can be rather slow to refresh their data at times. It was in the crecy spring catalogue

My 'US Airlifters Vol 2' is en route to me according to Amazon.

Sadly for them the one I actually pre-ordered was Vol 1.............

All these re-titlings, it's all too complicated for me.  :banghead:

Anyway, I've got it and it's truly amazing! Goodness knows what some of those designers were on at the time, but it must have been pretty powerful.  :o 

There's a couple of designs in there that Tophe would LOVE! Twin boomed AND asymmetric too!  :thumbsup:
