Now available is the third of Justo Mirandas Unknown! series. Done in
the style of the Reichdreams Dossiers, this series covers more than just
WWII German designs, branching out to cover designs from around the
world. They are more recent products than most of the Dossiers, and
benefit from further experience in drafting... with the result being
that there are a great many truly wonderful diagrams contained within
their pages.

The Unknown series is at the bottom of this page:
