I have a couple nice line drawings of a Shark III that someone Emailed to me years ago, when I first went online. Unfortunately, I didn't keep track of who sent it or where it's original source. Also, I didn't save them digitally, but printed them off and saved them in a binder.

If you like, I could email them to you.

Roy, the book was "Canada's Wings" 1a The Blackburn Shark by Carl Vincent (Canada's Wings Pub. 1977).
The drawings were done by G.G. Hopp.

Thanks Bill i got it o.k.

G.G.Hopp was a great draftsman, he must have drawn them at a very large scale so as to get such fine detail.

Thanks a lot Roy.
