    Hi all, as a new member here I thought I will initially post a manual that I picked up ages ago on the net. It will be of interest to someone I hope :D


    Cheers,
    Chris

    Hi
    Many thanks for posting,
    I just had a thought with over 13000 members of this board, with an effort from everyone to post a manual the archive would be amazing........
    Not that it isn't already...:D
    Cheers
    Jerry

    I have quite a few manuals in PDF form... most of them already published here...plus a couple extremely rare ones ;Boomerang Overhaul manual,Boomerang Spare Parts Breakdown;RAAF B-25 Aircraft Overhaul manual in hard cover to name a couple.

    Are these real aircraft we're talking about..? In what condition are they? There was only one that was airworthy when I was in the big brown land last ('96)

    Hi Terry,

    I'm sure I can't be the only one who would be enthralled to see some pics of the restoration.

    All I need is a kit...not fussy on scale, any will do...of the Vildebeeste so I can make one up in 36 Sqn or 100 Sqn markings for the valiant but futile raid on Endau, Malaya, in January 1942. "Hats off to the pigs".
