Dudes,

I have one available. I might put it up on the ol' EBAY if anyone is intersted. During my search, two sources came through at the same time and I have two. I only need one~!

Surly, where do you live? I don't know if I want to pay a high shipping + tax to Switzerland, but I'm definitely interested.

Sir,

I'm in Indiana in the good ol' USA.

I'll put it up on EBAY soon. Ironically this book has some college-type notations in it which looks as if someone was doing research on the original IL2 game.

The book's still in great shape. I'll post it up within 2 weeks. Got some busy weekends coming up -- you all know how summer goes. Just ask Oleg... hehehe. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif I'll let you all know when.... hopefully under the ol' radar of the mods. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Surly,

Who knows, maybe I can save you the trouble. What did you pay for it?

Attention all:

http://surlybirch.tripod.com//sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/BlackCrossRedStar.jpg

An Auction for this item will begin on EBAY at 11:45pm PST on Saturday, July 12th. I've been deluged by folks so I had to put it up.

I can't post the link, otherwise the mods would smoke me. It will be obvious how to find it. By AMAZING coincidence my EBAY name is also surlybirch. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

If they start blowing me smoke, I'll put info on the new off-topic forum.

Good luck,

Looks like they have one available on Amazon although a might pricey at $110.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0935553487/qid=1057877124/sr=8-2/ref=sr_8_2/102-1962838-8532150?v=glance&s=books&n=507846

P.S. I've got a copy. Nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah.

I know not what course others may choose, but as for me, give me computer games or give me television!

wgnw,
Keep checking amazon.com. They get copies every now and
again. As far as paying $110.00 for it, I guess that
depends on how bad you want it.

I almost bought it for $120.00, decided to get Red Star Vol 5
and another P-39 book instead. Glad I did, I picked up
Black Cross Red Star Volume 1 for $30.00 plus shipping and
handling at Amazon. They had 3 copies when I bought mine.
I got it in March of this year. This "used" copy was in
better shape than my new copy of Vol 2.

Keep looking!

S!

What I wouldn't GIVE to get a hold of that book, I've been after this one for quite a while guys.

If you find a copy intact I hope you ship it to Canada, I'm willing to even make a run to Montreal in person to pick it up.

looks like it should start on auction soon, if it hasn't already. i won't be around to make final bids though, leaving town.

congrats to the highest bidder. /i/smilies/16x16_robot-happy.gif
