      These might help not 1/144 but better than nothing.

      The three view drawing in Air Enthusiast, Oct 1971 issue,is drawn to 1/144 scale. It's the original short nose version BN-2A Mk III-1.

      The old original "Airfix" magazine, the one with the small format, had an excellent piece on the conversion of an 1/72 scale Airfix Islander to a Trilander. with excellent drawings of both. I lost my copy in the flood.

      Can you recall what issue it was in? I've done a quick search but couldn't find anything in my Airfix Magazines but I did find a Trislander conversion article in the October 1972 issue of "Model World".

      It was Modelworld. i don't remember ever seeing a Trislander conversion in the old Airfix magazine. Not to say it didn't happen, however.

      The Trilander conversion article may have been published in the IPMS/UK magazine. I discovered as a back issue at the IPMS/USA headquarters in the mid-70's, so it was probably printed in the early 70's. The same magazine ran a series of civil-oriented articles about the same time, including the DC-8, 737, 727 and BAC 111. The DC-8 article contributor was Bill Matthews from the UK. I do remember it was the small format for sure, all b/w photos and good stuff. I wish I had my copies again, darn flood!
