Default Whittle V8 plans?

I've seen many references all over the web to the Eric Whittle V-8 plans, and am interested in playing with them in CAD as a new project (I find that I learn a lot just building things in CAD, since I have no workshop yet)

Many more recent references to these plans suggest that they are freely available. But all of the links that refer to them are dead, and I've seen no other postings.

Can someone please direct me to where I can find a free copy of these plans, if they are indeed still freely available?

Thanks,
- Ryan

Ryan;

Sign in to Yahoo groups "WhittleV8" and look under "Files". At one time they were also posted on the Model Engineer Magazine website.

Cheers Garry

They have been removed from the Model Engineer site with some other things also.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/WhittleV8/files/EricWhittle%20V8-01.pdf

will get you to them if you are a Yahoo member.

Thank you folks, I was misled by the group's description to believe they wouldn't have them, as they are a group for those already building whittles by their description. I have requested registration.

aye, but it seemed silly to buy something that was widely reported to be free.

Some time ago I thought that it might be a good project to produce a set of castings for this engine.
I did the 3D modelling for the main castings



but other commitments forced the project onto a back burner.
If there was enough interest it would not take much to get the project restarted.
The castings would be lost wax from rapid prototyped patterns and could be in aluminium or perhaps brass/bronze if prefered.
Any comments.
