I think you will really struggle to do a small version EDF Canberra, the engine nacelles are very small in diameter compared to the rest of the plane.

That said here's some threads I found with Canberra in their titles, (the plane not the place ) -

English Electric Canberra

English electric canberra by rocco leo this is a great video of build pictures, and first flight video.

English Electric Canberra B2

Chris Golds Canberra

There are a few others as well. Here is a link to a plan of a 42" span Canberra by Chris Gold, it's for twin pushes, but could probably be converted to EDF - http://shop.traplet.com/product.aspx?c=1044

Also a 57" span Canberra plan, but for two IC engines, again, could be converted to EDF.

thanx for those links they are a possiblity for me , i see what you mean about the nacells they are quite narrow. what do u think to running twin 40mm fans? or even 55mm fans?
I have one40mm that gives around 200 g of static thrust which i put into a modified version of "back rats" simple typhoon build and that flew fairly well with a good chuck!!
I was going to use 3mm depron for the bulk of the canberra build, and im not to worrried about it being 100% scale

Have a look in the various EDF forums for the best information, I have never tried EDF, though I did do a fairly large EDP twin, (Electric Ducted Prop)

Good luck with the project.

Canberra plans

Would plans for the NASA WB-57N with 86" span be interesting?
