    Would anyone be interested in getting a hold of these manuals. If there is I will consider getting them professionally scanned. The are mostly about the systems in aircraft and seam to be around the 60's. 2 RAAF 1 RAF all of the same series.

    From the covers these are of no interest to me but I strongly suggest you do scan and post these (and other manuals you have in PDF or can convert to PDF) anyway because often people find that an "uninteresting" document actually contains something that they desperately want.
    Likewise in the future someone may be desperate for these and unless you post them now they may never be posted.
    You state you are considering professional scanning.
    I strongly suggest you avoid Officeworks.
    The Beaufort manual I uploaded to http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/ot...ech-/australian-beaufort-manuals-21513-2.html was scanned by them - I specified one or more 600dpi greyscale multipage TIFF files and got a single 192 dpi B&W PDFA file with foldouts scanned while folded. PDFA files are not editable without having Adobe Acrobat Professional or similar software. This screenshot shows the quality

    In the short time I had before having to return the manual to the person who gave it to the owners of a Beaufort I was able to recopy quite a few pages by going to a Moonee Valley public library where you can load the pages in an A3 scanner with an auto doc feeder, select the resolution and file type you want and the machine double side scans the file and emails it to you, all for free.
    Your library may have the same support (mine in Qld does) This way you control the quality and ensure everything is copied. The only problems are pages bigger than A3 need to be scanned in sections and, depending on the time of day you may need to book the scanner.
    If you do post them then there are two good forums that I can think of where they would fit very nicely
    http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/aviation/aircraft-related-pdf-files-enjoyment-43002.html this has a lot of design type files
    http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/technical/assorted-australian-aircraft-manuals-42846.html this being as titled
    Regards

    Thanks for the advice!! I really appreciate it and thanks for all the manuals you have posted :D
    I'll look around for a pro scanner or hit up the local library when I get the time :)
    My only are the manuals are the Instrument Schedule which I'll post on your other forum, and a couple of Beaufighter Pilots notes which can be found everywhere
