Every morning I wake up and look at the fuselage sitting on top of the wardrobe for the A.M. Finucane designed Blackburn Monoplane that I started 55 years ago. I also have a lot of the other parts which I'd cut out.

But, I can't find the plan! Being old school I really don't want to download a copy and try to make sure that the print is exactly the right size for all the parts I already have.

Does anyone have an original copy of this plan which they could bear to part with?

Thanks very much.

Hi Ian

Sarik has the plan: **LINK** if you click the link it will come up.

I built and flew that design back in about 1973 on single channel with an ED Comp Special up front. It flew well with the old ED making such a racket, and shaking the bracing wires like crazy. Great fun with not much of a glide as it's very draggy. I suspect that I increased the dihedral a bit to make the model more responsive to the rudder-only setup. It'll be a very nice project to complete eventually and well worth the effort.
