Thanks steam guy.  I found this book on Google Books and have downloaded it.  I'll see if I can find what I'm looking for.  Added:  The free download is poor quality, especially in the drawings, so if you can have a look I'll appreciate it.

Cheers,
Phil

Having compared the drawings for Suzanne with what I have seen of Dora's they look remarkably similar, except that there are 21 sheets in the Suzanne drawings and only 16 in the Dora set  :noidea: I suspect that Willy originally drew up this engine and sold the rights to a number of ME suppliers across Europe.

I am hoping that GLR may, as a result of my enquiries, be able to provide this engine again in the future and that will be at UK rather than Swiss prices :drinking-41:

Willy has also designed some other rather nice engines  :embarassed:

Maybe Dora was done on A3 sheets

Yes Willy has a few designs, his "Anna" will be the subject of a build article starting in the next issue of ME :)

The layout of the detail on the sheets are identical. What ever size you print them on.
