The Codock was a small airliner designed by Wackett in Australia, there was only build one aeroplane, it was the fore runner of the Tugan LJW7 Gannet of which were build 8 aeroplanes.
Until now I could not find drawings and dimensions, the only dimensions I found were on airwar.ru, but I dont trust them. The reason is that in Flight 1933 was mentioned that the Codock should have a span of 52', but at airwar it was smaller.
Who can help me

That 1933 Flight article also describes the Codock as carrying six passengers. So, it would seem that Flight confused the 5-passenger LJW6 Codock with the then-pending, 6-passenger Tugan LJW7 Gannet.

BTW: Airwar.ru lists Codock wing span as 15. 85 metres (52 feet) ... same as the Gannet.
