Product description

Review

"In this book, the author covers every known aspect of the Northrop N-63 project including a wealth of engineering drawings of the aircraft in question along with the original and updated brochure offered by Northrop. There are also artist's impressions of these aircraft as well as full color profiles of what might have been. It makes for a fascinating look into what might have been and sheds some light on a little known aviation project."-ModelingMadness.com

"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!"-CyberModeler.com "Like the other convoy fighter books Retromechanix put a lot of time and effort into research for the book, and if you have any curiosity about these aircraft then you'll want to track down this entire series."-Internetmodeler.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Brief and concise with excellent writing 5 Mar. 2016
By JCAL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Another excellent Zichek production. Mr. Zichek is very adept at taking archival material and fleshing it out with color illustrations. Access to the original materials and his color illustrations alone makes this monograph worthwhile. However, Mr. Zichek also provides some contemporary insights into the proposal, development, and failure of the N-63. Frankly,I would like to see some larger more comprehensive volumes from him similar to his efforts for Schiffer. However, given the economics of publishing these types of books from the authors standpoint, I will have to be satisfied with these wonderful self-published monographs.

As I have previously cited Mr. Zichem's monographs are among the best available for lesser known aircraft.
