This thread touched a nerve.  I've gotten the idea that the Belgian version 
of the RE 8 would make a great subject for a Free Flight model.  I've 
scounged every photo I can find on the web and in print.  I haven't found a 
drawing.  I'm perfectly willing to draw my own but I'd rather not do it 
without a few dimensions to go on.  Is there any way to get the basic 
measurments from the nose of that Brussels machine?   As much as I'd like to 
get them myself, the chances are that it will be many years before I can 
make the trip to Belgium.  Any help would be much appreciated.  I'd be glad 
to share the drawing once it's completed.

If I get there before it closes I'll have a go, but it's unlikely. Could be 
shut for 2 years, for refurbishment of the building. But there are a few 
Belgian listees who might be able to help.
