Scale Drawings
by John Hawley

The drawings that Harrye worked to when building his Lion were produced by John Hawley. Harrye is indebted to John for all the work he has done and the fact is that without these drawings he could not have built his engine.

Much reduced in size examples of the drawings, these do not do justice to their original quality.

A list of his drawings is shown below.
