Best I can do is a jpeg of the magazine plan, sorry about the punch marks over the centre. Maybe one of the resident genius's can do something with it. Also jpegs of the article.

Try this for size, one of my CAD tracings. I'm sorry about the quality but I had the reduce the dpi to get the file to fit within the forum's constraints. If you require a better quality file please let me know. Please take care if you use it and measure well before cutting

Can someone PLEASE help me find any kind of Canberra plan? Is one posted anywhere? I have been searching for more than a year for a plan to redraw to 44 or 45 inches for 2 speed 400's.
Thanks,
Richard

Scorcher plans - MAN August 1961

I have a box of Cox engines - some with barrel throttles...
...so I have been playing about with various plans that have been uploaded into this thread.
I have everything saved into my own server.

This .pdf is one that I have made by modifying only the page with the plan within the file named 'Scorcher plan - MAN Aug 1961' - that was uploaded into post 4291 - by Ralph B, on page 287 of this thread.

The plan is not 'restored' or anything - I only cleaned up the edges - but I believe it will be the right size.

With a throttled Cox engine and modern radio - such a model ought to be fun...

It could also be flown with a 400-size motor...

Keven.

Nearly sure the "Boddinton" did one for RCME with "Trent" engine outlines.

Regards Ian.

I think there was a nice Jetex Canberra, maybe Skyleada.

Yes Skyleada did do a very nice jetex 100 powered Canberra. We were going to do a laser kit model of it but the demise of rapier motors put an end to that.

adb1939,

If there are no plans to bring out a kit for the Canberra do you have a PDF of the plan that you could please e-mail me? I will re-draw it toy 44 or 45 inch span for 2 speed 400's. I will not post or share the original plan with anyone without your expressed permission.

Thank you for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Richard
