Now there's an interesting part number for a scanner:-)
I've had similar problems in the past trying to "stitch" schematics, I did  
find a program some years ago that would "half" work, usually matching up 
the  ends of the lines ok, but then leaving quite significant distortion  in 
that region. I know others have claimed some success so thought perhaps  it 
was just me, but perhaps not after all.
These days I use a Kodak feed through unit that will take up to A3,  and 
with sheets even larger than that it generally manages in two or more A3  
parts with a generous overlap which isn't too bad, so would be quite happy to do 
 the scanning here if I had access to a copy.
I'd be more than happy to pay the postage charges both ways if anyone could 
 make a copy available for scanning, and happy to share the results, but  
must admit if it were my copy I'd probably be pretty reluctant to trust it  
to the post.

Let's see if there is a  scanner available to handle the fold-outs.

My HP5370C scanner (read  that number once more!) doesn't do that size 
and I have not figured out a  good way to have schematics partially 
scanned and joined together. The one  program, hugin, that seems to join 
photos doesn't work with scanned  schematics.
