    I am looking for information/documentation about the Hamilcar

    Also any reference to magazines that hold articles would be most welcome.

    Paging aeronut...

    Sadly Hamilcar's are the one thing I have little info on in terms of construction and development. Just a few technical drawings and photographs I'm afraid.

    There is a good article on the Hamilcar's construction in the December 15 1944 edition of The Aeroplane (Phillip, I have this on my computer so you can have a copy) but I suppose Phillip is more intersted in this sort of thing.

    Which one of the AP plates I've been using to identify Hamilcar parts held by the Museum of Army Flying at Middle Wallop.

    Bovington Tank Museum have a decent chunk of Hamilcar glider; it is in a 'cut-away' state so quite useful if you are interested in construction methods.
