Can't help you, but maybe try giving them a bell at Cosford?  Since they've got the original, I imagine they'd have drawings too or at least be able to point you in the right direction.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I have the Maintrack kit of this and I'm sure there's a few section views on the 3-View drawings that comes with it, only problem is when I went to have a look yesterday I couldn't find the kit in the stash and I only had the blasted thing out a few weeks ago.

Thanks for the replies chaps, I may contact Cosford and call in on the way to the Nats in November.
All the best

You know what, I knew I'd seen one somewhere!

If you have trouble saving it, you can download it from airwar.ru:

Did you know that the main wheels when retracted, stow away vertically in the fuselage.

Yes, I've just read an article in a old Aeroplane magazine. It also said that part of the engine necelle, 4ft dia and 2ft 8in was the largest Stainless steel casting of the day and that they hadn't developed a fuel tank sealant until a good way through the project.
Great drawing, just what I was after.
Many thanks and all the best.
Steve
