Stuck On The Drawing Board: Unbuilt British Commer

Mon Oct 10, 2011 5:06 am

Has anyone read this book? Any thoughts or comments? Mostly wondering if it's worth the $40 it would cost to get my hands on one...

It's a very detailed book on various projects that never made it off the drawing board for one reason or another. If you are into that kind of stuff, which I am, the book is worth getting. Not many books cover this material in detail. With some Internet searching, you might be able to locate a copy for less money. Anyway, the book is very thorough, though the arrangement can make specific models difficult to locate, such as the huge Saunders-Roe flying boat projects, which are in the back of the book. It's an excellent resource and worth a splurge.
