    Hey Guys, This is my first post. This is a technical manual for the Consolidated B-24 that was used at the Willow Run Plant to build the Liberator. It's about 320 pages long. It is loaded with technical information that I hadn't seen anywhere else and also many checklists for quality control. I love this manual and paid $150 for it but I'm very happy to share with you guys, that have shared so much with me. I would also like to show some appreciation to you guys that have scanned your own manuals to share with us, I know this one took me a good 8 hours but it was well worth it! Keith

    In case the download link doesn't show up below, here it is RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting . Remember, I'm a newbie.

    Can anyone tell me what language that is above or what it says? If something is wrong with the files I uploaded, I need to know to fix it. Thanks, Keith

    Nevermind, I figured it out. One guy was having problems with rapidshare and the other guy said it worked fine. Thank You to Google Translator for Italian!

    Hi tlbates,

    Many thanks for the drawings you have so generously shared. I would love to see any French ships plans you have, especially pre-dreadnoughts such as the French battleship "Jauréguiberry" of 1893 (Charles Martel class).

    Regardless, I have enjoyed the ones you have uploaded already.

    Again, thanks for sharing, Peter
