I'm sure some of the mags did/do an old plan, a Duncan Hudson plan perhaps? I know he had a model of one a few years back.

This is one plane I really like. Durring WW2 an 'Anne' from nearby OTU RAF Sutton Brigde crashed in what was a field, but is now my flying strip at the back of my parents house. I beleive most crew survived but I think at least one member was killed. Always thought about making one in memory of the crew and the old 'Anne', but have always struggled to find a plan that would be simple and small enough to convert to an electric model to suite my needs.

Good luck, I too will be interested it what info others have.

Stuart

Traplet Publications sell the plan and the accessories. Not cheap but it does build into a nice aircraft. From memory think that they have both the 'blister' cowls or the smooth. Last time I had anything to do with an Anson was to help, as an apprentice, in re-covering one.
