    I've attached some manuals that were used to teach people how to build aircraft during World War 2. All of the books were produced from 1941 through 1945 and are very interesting. A few were to big for the 50mb rule, so I had to split them up. This is the best collection of books on how these beautiful warbirds were built. These books are hard to find and it's taken me a long time to collect this many on the subject. I hope you guys enjoy. Keith

    Wow, this looks cool. My engineering knowledge is limited, but reading stuff like this helps me learn. I sit here with a printout in one hand and the computer looking up words and stuff, in the other. I have lost whole afternoons researching the ideas found in these old books. Thanks :coffee: :homework:

    Great work, thankyou very much for posting.
    Unfortunately I wasn't able to get the Aircraft Construction Handbook Part 2.pdf‎ as a notice of errors occurs after the download.
    Again, many thanks.
