    I'm looking to make a model of the bridge commonly known as Pegasus Bridge and wondered if anyone had any scle plans of it.

    I've been googling but typically tthe combination of the name and the word "plans" is turning up nothing other than mentions of the operation plans (Bigot).

    Anyone have any or know of a source?

    There are loads of photos of the bridge from a variey of angles. Google Image 'caen canal bridge'.

    I found this and this as well.

    Never seen any plans for it. Happy to send you a load of photos if that helps? Remember the bridge over the canal now is slightly different to the original, which is nearby in the museum.

    This is a completely noob question but when did they change it??

    Hello mate,
    A friend of mine has built a model of the bridge and the surrounding area as it was in 1944. I can't remember what scale it is but if you like I can see if he has any pics of it and email them to you. PM me if you're interested and I'll get on to him or maybe it would be easier if I just gave you his email address and you can contact him direct? :)
    All the best and good luck!!

    Hi Paul,

    I have the same problem: want to build a replica of the bridge but have no idea of the rea size. Did your friend have any blueprints or actual dimensions of the bridge? Only one measure would be fine (so I can set a scale for pics I've collected.

    Best regards,

    Welcome Bruno,

    There's a flash booklet with basic dimensions on page 4 below:

    The Pegasus Bridge - Flash


    Hope that helps as a starting point ... :)
