Hi Ed, a couple weeks ago Classics told me it was finished up at the binders, and expected it to be available "in about 4 weeks". Take care, Dan

Re: Me 262 Production Log release date?

I saw the book yesterday, definitely not for the faint of heart. It's a massive work, it clearly contains the best informations regarding every 262 known.

Part 1 covers every WkNr known with a text varying from half a page to just a few lines depending on the informations known about it. A good job has been done towards mentionning the sources which is definitely needed with such a work.

part 2 cover the unknown wknr mentionned in losses or through pictures or other documents. The amount of text being proportional to what is known about them.

It's a great reference document, featuring few pictures (most well known) and a massive listing of details of the a/c. Clearly it's not a book you buy expecting to read it from the beginning to the end, but it's a most needed reference to anyone interested in either the type or the Luftwaffe losses or a/c listings.

Good job Dan

I suggest you prepare some addenda/errate page on your site as it would be i think a nice addition.

I notice that the ad for the book called it a paperback, but I got a hardback. Don't know if that's what you're referring to, Jim.

Me 262 Production Log - The Binding Plot Thickens

Hey George!

The only binding option for Log that I could find in the Amazon advert was "paperback." I want CLOTH!!! Bewildered that you ordered "paper" but got a hardback? How can we trust this will happen? :-( Chime in here, Dan!!!

I have only seen Hard Cover copies, not the first time that Amazon makes a mistake. Just check the ISBN to be certain.
