Fi 103 - V1 Flying Bomb plans?

After a conversation the other day on the topic with a friend, a bit of googling & a search here, it appears difficult to find any plans for an electric powered V1 flying bomb (Doodlebug).
I'm sure I've seen one here before, a chap had two of them and had pics too.
Can anyone shed any light on plans at all?
Cheers - Phil

I just did a search and couldn't find it either. I'm pretty sure it was a Ron Daniels design though.

Look up Ron Daniels in the membership list. He's got a S400 one. Shoot him a PM. I believe that he also did a laser cut kit of it but don't quote me on that.
I've seen it and it flies real well.

Thanks guys,
Yep it sure looks like Ron has the one I'm after, just EAM don't list it on their site any more.
I'm waiting for replies from them & RWDC.com.
Thanks also MV16 I hadn't seen that site before, saved it for when I go to EDF's later this year.
I'll post my search results here for future E-zoners reference.
Cheers - Phil

I'm pretty sure that EAM still has some. I'm sold out. I'm not sure if and when I will make more.

E-Mail EAM directly, if it is not up on their site.

If you search for Mid America 2004, there is actually some video footage of the V1 being intercepted by my Sea Fury and Tempest Mk II in the lunch demo section of the video coverage. That's here on E-zone.

Get some 3 views and design one yourself Phil. You've got the skills.

Ha ha - Cheers Graham,
That may well be my last resort,
It must be my googling skills, I couldn't find a decent quality 3-view anywhere.

Ah, I get it.
You want to stick one of your smoke pellets in the tailpipe, don't you Phil.

You could change your name to "Smokin' Buzzbomb".

Oops - missed your post Hul - sorry
Thanks! I've saved them & will have a look at enlarging.
(looks like works photocopier will get a flogging this week)
Thanks also to Merlin V-16 for the PM.
I'll post the info if it's OK with the original designer.

Sure do and they are a very good reproduction, they print off well.
I will enlarge them a touch though, the size as-is would fit a DD sp350 or DD sp400 but it would be a semi-guided missile in my hands - hell fast
Thanks again - Phil
