Convair Class VF Convoy Fighter


Product Description
Product Details


"In this book, the author covers every known aspect of the development of the Convair XFY-1 project including a wealth of engineering drawings of the aircraft in question along with the original and updated brochures offered by Convair to the Army as a possible recce platform. There are also artists impressions of these aircraft as well as full color profiles of what might have been. It makes for a fascinating look into what many consider an unusual, but dead end project." (April 2017)"The author has put together the background, concepts, and even the engineering drawings of the Convair proposal which makes for some interesting reading to see what might have been. If you're an aviation enthusiast or modeler that enjoys looking at the 'what-if' side of aviation, this monograph is worth adding to your library!" (April 2017)"This is an interesting booklet and will make a great companion book for the Ginter book on the Pogo as these two books from different publishers go hand in hand. RetroMechanix has given us the proposal in great detail and a good analysis of the reasons it failed. The 1950s were a time of great experimentation and radical design thoughts for aircraft. This booklet shows one of the most radical of them all. It is recommended to all with an interest in prototypes, 1950s military aviation, and unusual aircraft. For the scratch builder there is much here to be used to produce models of the various proposals."-IPMS/USA (May 25, 2017)
