    Hi all,
    while I've been doing research for my drawings of the Wirraway and Boomerang, I've collected a bunch of interesting information (well, I think its interesting, anyway).

    I've decided to load some of it to my website, so others can enjoy (?!?) this esoteric technical stuff...

    Click here for the Wirraway stuff

    and click here for the Boomerang stuff

    Feel free to let me know what you think, I'll be adding more stuff whenever I get the time...

    Derek

    Hi All,
    I just added a cutaway drawing to the Wirraway technical information page (link in the first post above). It was drawn by F.D. Rogers in 1944, so it's not super-high quality. But interesting nonetheless.

    Cheers,
    Derek

    For the Wirraway fans, I've just added a set of drawings for the CA-1 Wirraway, showing lots of detail. As far as I know, this is the first time the CA-1 (as it rolled out of the factory) has been presented in detail for a 3-view drawing. There are some Wirraway drawings floating around, but they show the CA-1 following lots of modifications and updates.

    Click here to go to the drawings

    Enjoy!

    Great! Very cool, Derek! I'm an enthusiast for "down-under" aviation (still waiting for Ventura publication "Ghost squadron Beaufighter) and without doubt your website's going to my favorite storage!
    Thanks
