Hello, and welcome to the forum.
Pen & Sword are due to publish British Naval Weapons of World War Two Volume III: Coastal Forces by the late John Lambert, which may include this weapon, else his earlier volumes may, and I assume he must have created plans for sale previously, although only plans for the boats appear available on the John Lambert plans site.
If you perform a web search on single bofors gun and look under images, there are some plans which show up, but I don’t know if they would be sufficient for your needs.
