    Does anyone have a good source for scale drawings?

    I've got an old and rather delapidated Carden Cap 232 that needs to be rebuilt and I've decided to scratch build a new fuselage instead of trying to salvage the old one. There are a few details though that I'd like to make slightly more scale but I don't have an actual Cap 232 nearby.

    A source for scale drawings and info on the full scale planes would be appreciated. In the meantime, google. :)

    Thanks!
    Bart

    Thanks Terry, that's a start but I'm looking more for the details like fairings around the horizontal and vertical stabs, wing to fuselage fairings, radius from the fuselage sides to bottom panels, gear mounting and fairing.....stuff like that. I might have an option, just waiting to see if it comes through.

    Hi Bart,
    Have you tried Bob Banka's scale drawings? He just recently sold his company but the new owners are keeping on with the company. I have used his source since the 80's for doing some of the scale stuff that have designed and built.
    Best of luck with your Cap project,
    Larry B
