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
 
Here is a Profile drawing;

Thanks, but this drawing and information comes from Flight 1933
 
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.
 
LJW6, one-off version of the LJW7.
