Well illustrated coverage of advanced Convair aircraft projects. 4. April 2014
Von Chester J. Zaba - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Very nice, well illustrated book. Interesting coverage of unbuilt Convairs with photos and line drawing illustrations. Like nearly all Amazon shipped hardbound books, this one arrived with crushed corners. Packaging box didn't look too bad, so I'm beginning to wonder if this damage isn't happening at Amazon's distribution center. Can't beat Amazon's prices, but I have had to return books to them because they just don't give a darn about whatever they ship once you've paid.

Very nicely done! 28. März 2014

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is another in a series of books detailing heretofore classified, unknown or little known aviation projects. In this case, it is more of the wonders that came from the talented engineers at Convair.

The previous volume dealth with seaplanes and bombers. This one details fighters, attack aircraft and "unique" proposals. Some of those concepts were truly unique and shows how far "out of the box" were Convair's engineers willing to go. For fans of technology, aviation, aviation history and militaria, this is an excellent volume to acquire.

The production values are high and the detail is quite good. The photographs and illustrations are well done, clear, and relevant. I'm glad I purchased this book and highly recommend it to others!
An Important Addition to Aviation History 19. Mai 2014
Von F. Stop Fitzgerald - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In reviewing any book, one has to keep in mind the author’s intent and whether it delivers on that desire. Robert E. Bradley in his Convair Advanced Designs II sets out to illuminate the “Secret Fighters, Attack Aircraft and Unique Concepts” of Consolidated Vultee Aircraft in its many incarnations from 1929 to 1973. The subject matter is fertile ground; few authors have looked at the details of advanced engineering—specifically design studies and proposals, which led to production aircraft.

Bradley does this in style. From the clay-coated, thick, glossy stock of the pages to the subtle tones in watercolor reproductions, this is impressive. The paper choice is an imperative for crisp reproduction not only of the photographs and paintings, but the many line art 3- and 4- views. Those drawings are, from my point of view, the most important addition to my library. Disappointingly, they represent the greatest failing of the work—the lack of identifying information so that the reader can easily track down the originals if needed. But that is my quibble as a researcher. Any other quibble isn’t worth mentioning.

Consider one chapter. The XP-92, which evolved into the XF-92A that eventually led to the F-102 and F-106, is a good case in point. Over 21 pages, there are 36 illustrations, six of which are detailed 3-view drawings. All are of adequate size and very good quality reproductions of the originals, they are not redraws. This is a well-illustrated production. Very few are familiar, virtually every turn of the page is an addition to an aviation reader’s visual lexicon.

While the focus is on studies and proposals that never saw metal, Bradley does give us enough information about related programs—and even a few competitors—that saw production to give the reader context.

No book can be all things to everyone, and that is the case here. But Bradley touches all the bases he outlines in the introduction. He defines the limits of what he presents and the limits of the information that is available. Within those limits this work is bang-on and a worthy addition to the library of anyone who has more than a passing interest in the genesis of military aircraft.
A unique look at the oddball and far out aircraft ... 21. November 2014
Von Robert C Gardner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
A unique look at the oddball and far out aircraft the government ask the aircraft companies to come up with designs for. This book covers the answers that we're put forward as Convair answer to the governments specs. Some of these designs were quite interesting and worth a look if you are a pre jet buff.
