Default Newbiw Issues with Display Settings

I am VERY new to Maya and I am having a problem with the display, I have set the Working Units to Centimeters, mainly because I am working from 2D drawing that are also in cms to make most of the drawing out of objects as exact as I can, the problem is that I cannot see all of my object in the perspective view, OK in the others, how do I change the settings so that I can view the entire image???

All the best

Chris

The geometry is being clipped off (for performance purposes). Select the camera and open the Attribute Editor and increase the far clip plane.
