If you can get hold of a copy of "Wings of the Navy" by Capt. Eric Brown (ISBN 0 906393 87 6), you'll find a lot of information and the drawing you're after in this wonderful book.  Do yourself a favour and go for a copy in "very good" or "Fine" condition.

Checking Scalemates, there are also:

 

Air Profile 240: https://www.kingkit.co.uk/product/profiles-books-AIRCRAFTPROFILES-240-fairey-barracuda-mks-i-v

 

Warpaint 35: https://www.bookworldws.co.uk/product/warpaint-35-fairey-barracuda/

 

Orange Series: http://mmpbooks.biz/ksiazki/337

 

I don't own any of these, I cannot vouch for the contents. I'd buy them, they're not expensive - apart from the Orange Series one which seems unobtainable

 

I'd buy 'Wings of the Navy' just for Winkle Brown!

Whenever I see a photo of one of these things, two things pop to mind.  First is, “Why????”, and the second is a Plymouth commercial (the American auto company Plymouth marketed a sporty little muscle car called the Plymouth Barracuda for a while) from many years ago in which one if the characters insists on calling the car a “Baccaruda.”   I’m not sure this airplane is worthy even of that.

You're fortunate it wasn't 'Summer Fun' by the Barracudas. Plymouth Baccaruda indeed...
