No 61 From the publisher: "The new edition of Arado Ar 234 monograph devoted to the history of the Arado Ar 234 Blitz, the first German jet bomber and reconnaissance plane.  The book has been supplemented with new pictures and include a large number of detailed 3D visualization featuring aircraft design. The first volume covers its design and development in regard to the evolution of jet propulsion. Each variant is specified and described, including few which never progressed beyond the drawing board.  
More than 120 pages,  2 double B2 sheet with drawings,  A2 sheet with drawings,  2 pages A4 sheet of scale drawings,  93 archival photographs,  more than 130 renders, 10 painting schemes, 16 color photos "

No 62 From the publisher: "Other Projects Tests with the Arado Ar 234 prototypes demonstrated that straight wings retained their good aerodynamic characteristics only at speeds below 800 kph. Near-supersonic flights demanded a completely new approach to wing geometry. On 9th December 1942 two Arado company engineers, Rüdiger Kosin and Walter Lehmann, patented a crescent shaped wing, which had its sweep and chord decreasing from root to tip. In mid-1944 Kosin decided to use his wing design on the Arado 234. Five variants of the wing were built, designated Versuchsflügel I through V, each differing in its sweep. Nevertheless, none of them was used in practice. The most advanced work on this project was carried out at Dedelsdorf airbase, where the Ar 234 V16 was being re-built as part of this research. The aircraft was destroyed in mid-April 1945 by advancing British troops as they captured the airfield.  • 120 pages• 35 archival photos• 100 redenders• 24 pages pages A4, and 3 pages format A2 drawings with technical data• 2 drawings sheets  A4,  scale 1:72• 1 double B2 sheet with drawings sheets, scale 1:32 • 1 single-track B2 sheet with drawings sheets, scale 1:48• format (sizes): (210x297 mm)• matte coated paper• soft cover binding"

No 63 From the publisher: "The events of World War 2 proved beyond any doubt that the strategic bombing campaign greatly contributed to the Allies’ ultimate victory over Nazi Germany. British night bombing raids and daylight carpet bombing missions flown by the USAAF crews rained destruction on German cities killing thousands of civilians in the process. Amidst this massive loss of civilian life the destruction of German industrial targets seemed almost like a side note. The arms race that kicked off even before the war began produced military aircraft capable of reaching ever higher operational ceilings. At first thin air at high altitudes was the domain of reconnaissance machines, but before long fighter and bomber aircraft began to venture there as well. In those early days high-altitude flight was a challenging business: it required the use of pressurized cockpits and boosted powerplants capable of delivering adequate power at altitude.  • 80 pages• 110 archival photos• 20 redenders• 10 pages pages A4 drawings with with drawings sheets, scale 1:32, 1:48, 1:72• format (sizes): (210x297 mm)• matte coated paper • soft cover binding"
