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?

Hmmm, I've had it on order from Amazon since April, and their last email about it said it could be as late as Sept 17th!  :banghead:

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

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

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:
