Hi All,

I am working up plans for a Handley Page WWI 0/400 bomber. I have the basic plan set from an old flying kit that comes up to the right size for the old warbird. I blew it up on our fancy copier at work and pieced together a plan set that I can use to come up with a 1/32 model, yes I know it comes out to a 36 inch wingspan and 27 inch fuselage length :-) .

I have a few sites here and there but I would like to find more. Since it is an open aircraft just about everything inside the fuselage would be viewable from the cockpit opening or the center open area. I found one site where a fellow made up a 1/48 scratchbuilt but some of the shots are a little vague on where things go inside.

I did a 1/72 model of the Airfix kit years ago but it is pretty thin on stuff that the larger scale would include. Any help would be appreciated.

Years ago Model airplane News published a book of plans that included drawings of the 0400.
I believe it showed some interior stuff. They may still be available from them.

There have been several good articles,namely the old Airfix mag and Scale Models over the years that have included internal sketchs of the 0/400.If you are interested,and patient,I could dig these out,the problem being I have just moved and they are still packed in boxes at present,and I could photo copy them and post them to you.E-mail me if you would like me to do this.....Dave
