Grahame-White Ganymede plans?

Recommended Posts

As the title suggests (and it's a long shot!), does anyone happen to have either plans or just a basic 3-view of the Grahame-White Ganymede bomber prototype, please?

Thanks FB, I'd already found that webpage but it's an Aero Limousine, not a Ganymede!

There is very little around on the Ganymede. There are three useful photos on Page 140a of the 1919 Janes. but no drawing, which might suggest that non were issued. There is no coverage in Bruce's RFC tome, nor in Ord-Humes British Commercial Aircraft. It only existed for 12 months. It's civil registration was  G-EAMW.  Span 89' 3", Length 49' 9", Wing chord , 10' 3", Gap, 9' 3", Span of tail 29'.  maximum height 16'.  Air screw diameter 3.140 Meters.  (4 blader's).

I was just researching this one and found this thread!

Yes, I couldn't find a plan either.

Mightly tempting, but a nightmarish scratchbuild!
