Hi guys.
Not sure if anybody can help?
I'm looking for information, especially a decent 3-view of the above aircraft, the original 4 engined version of this design. The 3-views online are dire! I have had a fairly good 'google' and found images (the one attached I have at super quality), but no good reference for colour. The one I like is F-AHAF, operated by CIDNA. There is a paper model available, but not sure where they got their colour information from.  Thanks in advance!

Richard,

Try contacting the National Aerospace library. It is run by the Royal Aeronautical Society and has one of the worlds greatest collections of aeroplane documents. The librarian. Is extremely knowledgable and helpful.

Richard, when I made my Farman 190 I emailed Michel Barrière after finding his Crezan Aviation website which has a lot of schemes, photos and info on Farmans. http://www.crezan.net/

I think I just used the email given on the website which is crezan.aviation@gmail.com
Michel was extremely helpful and sent me some photos of my chosen example that I'd not found anywhere else. I can't see anything about the aircraft you want on there, but as it's a Farman he might be worth asking.

looking at the photos, I couldn't help asking myself, "Why is the exhausts on the aft-facing engines pointed forward directly into the slipstream?"  Then I thought, maybe they were intakes on the reversed engines.  Hard to see on the photos where the aft pipes are actually going.

Now I see they are V-type engines so the outers are exhausts.  Original question remains.

Thanks Pete, I'll try this source too. There are actually quite a few good photos about but no 3v's. I've been wanting to build one on and off for 30 years, I may try to draw my own 3v. I can't find any overhead pics, so its tricky to see whats was going on in the cockpit area. One source states 2 crew up there, but I'm not sure, in pics I can only see one head and a single headrest. Interestingly, Pete Smart has just finished one of the 3-engined versions (the F.3x) at p-nut size with a Gasparin, which looking at the reg, they converted from a 4 engined F.4x.

Thanks for the Jabiru input folks. I'm seriously considering producing my own 3-view for this one. All drawing available seem to be quite basic, but they will be a great help in drawing my own.

How about contacting Jacques Cartigny? He always has rare subjects in his magazine, he might have access to better drawings. Not everything is available on the internet...

One more picture, in case you do not have it...

There are some on Flickr as well, which I cannot download, but you can take snapshots of them

You may remember my single engine Jabiru - but are you trying to upstage the "Fike" ...... I wonder.
