  1. From my somewhat limited understanding of the subject, and following research by a fellow enthusiast I was corresponding with, here's the point illustrated below. You can see the red line and blue line show that the nacelles are slightly tilted forwards
  2. thanks Radu, that's really interesting
  3. a certain dictator once described Willy Messerschmitt as having the skull of a genius. He clearly hadn't met you at that point!
  4. this is excellent news! Our team (Kjetil Aakra, Marcel Hogenhuis and Martin Streetly) is busy writing our book on the He 219 as we speak. Expected delivery date end of 2020. I am seriously considering going over to the Udvar Hazy Centre to talk to the restoration staff. I do have a contact there, but I could always do with another. Could anyone help?
  5. if it is it won't be by me... Crecy owns the Classic back cat... feel free to purchase LOL
  6. reviews (hopefully) forthcoming in the next few months: Iron Cross Magazine (UK) Air Classics Magazine (USA) Aeroplane Monthly Magazine (UK)
  7. cheers Rog a couple of people mentioned the lack of dust jacket, but I just felt the need to dispense with it. They always become torn or tatty in the end in my opinion. Everyone has loved the content of the book, so thanks for adding to the positive reviews!
  8. there is a lot of new information, especially on Rumanian use, and many new photos. I couldn't tell you much about the surviving cockpit section chapter, but I don't think there's a great deal of new info - it is however a footnote to the main meat of the book. The book is and will be the definitive resource for the next twenty years, and that's not something I say lightly.
  9. It absolutely does cover all the bases - frankly it's a bargain at £60!
  10. Hi guys thanks for the interest in the book. It's getting rave reviews all round. There seems to be some confusion about the content: More than a few of those advertising the book are using a blurb based on the estimate we used prior to signing the author. Therefore the content is as follows: 296 pages 13 colour profiles by Janusz Swiatlon 415 photos updated drawings by Arthur Bentley Even before I received the book I'd sold 600 copies....so there are now less than 400 left. If you want a copy in time for the release of the ZM kit, then please swing on over to my website: www.chandospublications.co.uk cheers Rich
  11. several hundred pre-orders later, but still going strong! Lots more copies available, so please check it out.
  12. Hi guys, We are now taking pre-orders for our new, definitive book on the Henschel Hs 129 Panzerjäger! Hi again everyone. After yesterday's announcement that the print order has been placed, I am pleased to confirm that we are now taking pre-orders for 'Henschel Hs 129 Panzerjäger' by Martin Pegg. To place your order, please go to our website at www.chandospublications.co.uk and click on the 'shop' tab at the top of the page. Follow the online instructions to place your order. Please note that we are expecting to take delivery of the books in 4-5 weeks, so you won't receive anything until then regardless of when you place your order. You can pay by bank transfer or cheque (UK customers) or PayPal (overseas customers). The book is £60.00 excluding postage. You can choose your country of residence and hence postage cost when you are placing your order. I would like to thank each and every one of you for your patience and support. Many thanks, Richard Carrick, MD, Chandos Publications.
  13. have not checked in for a few weeks....I knew I would not be disappointed
