Sorry this is a very late response (my how the time flies)

To address anybody wanting drawings of the Firefly 46, the original website's (both mine and Alex) that hosted the PDF drawings no longer exist, however I think I still have my original AutoCAD 3D models and the PDF drawings lying around on a dusty USB Hard Drive somewhere.

Assuming there is no copyright (they were free to download anyway) If anybody wants access to these I'll try and find somewhere to permanently host them so folk have something to keep them busy in this Covid-19 Lockdown madness.

Stay Safe everybody eventually those pubs will open !

Cheers

Glenn

The plans are available from Sarik who took over the plans service including those from RCM&E.

Not sure of the exact copyright but expect the ones Sarik have are as arranged on the two sheets that were in RCM&E but Alex and Glen would still hold the rights to the originals so OK for then to do what they wish. Asking around can also probably find a set if in need of them now as a lockdown project..

I originally created the various drawing sets for both Model Engineer and RCM&E along with a 32 drawing originals for the proving group who tested my drawing skills to ensure I had not dropped a bollock somewhere, you would assume myself and Alex own the rights to the originals? I cant remember the terms but it was Alex's baby.

I hosted the original plans for free I only feel it fair to let folk have access to them again especially in these mad Lockdown times. I'm working from home on my own and this is certainly tests my mental state having stuff to do would certainly help folk if I can contribute.

I will clear it with Alex first before hand but I cant see there being a problem being hosted somewhere. These would have to be the non RCM&E versions for obvious reasons.

Cheers

Glenn and Alex have agreed that making their drawings available to all again is a good idea so for those that want to have a go at building this nice little project they can be downloaded from my Dropbox account by clicking here

There may be a few additional drawings and renderings that Glenn has which I will add to the folder as they become available.

I've now added the additional renderings to the Dropbox account as well as to my Firefly Album.

Just to tempt a few who may have missed it first time around and are looking for a lockdown project here is an external rendering and cross section.
