Greetings, I was wondering if any of you out there in this IL-2 forum are familiar with this set of books on the Me262. They are by classic books and authoured by Richard Creek.I am thinking of bidding on thesebooks on Ebay ( http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3588644551&category=29344)Although they seem kind of high beings that they are at 100.00 bucks already, any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks alot

I didn't look, $100 per book, or the whole set?

I know volume 2 is extraordinarily hard to find and has sold on EBay for well over $100 alone.

BTW, Aeroplane Books has all four (including Volume 2) brand-new, for $49.95 a piece.

Sounds like a damned good deal. I'd bid up to $199.99. After that, I'd buy them from Aeroplanebooks.com.

Aeroplane Monthly carried a database article on the 262 in the June 2003 magazine, this was written by a Dr Alfred Price and covered no fewer than 19 pages, this man knew his stuff, in the rear of the magazine under book reviews the same man reviewed these four books...Each book in the UK were 35 pound each, book review out of Aeroplane below i took a pic for ya http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif , I also read another review on them as well said they were superb...... good luck http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have the First 3 Volume's in the ME-262 Set (Still waiting on Volume 4).
I also have the two Volume Books on the ME-163 (Also in the SAME Series).

If you are a Hardcore ME-262 Fan then these are your Books - They have EVERYTHING there is to know about this Plane. I dont think there will ever be a more indepth look at this aircraft unless the these books are Fully revised at a later date. As it is my Volume 1 is a Revised Edition from the Original.
