    I was watching the History channel and they mentioned Howard Hughes' XF-11 airplane. I did a search to find out more and came across this site:
    Historic Aircraft
    It has some 3-view drawings of various aircraft, some look like they could be used to design models. There are also a lot of photographs of various aircraft.

    About 5 or 6 years ago I found a set of detailed 3-views of several Il-2 variants. I downloaded the images at the time, but have since lost track of the site, and can't find it through any of the search engines I've tried. Given recent Il-2 releases (e.g., GPM, Answer, WAK...) and build threads, I thought it might be helpful to post them here.

    To Alcides: Il2.pdf opens for me with both Adobe Reader 8.0 and Foxit. Do you get an error message?

    Great drawings! One can make his own model from these!

    Glad to hear that it works. I'm using CutePDF (free version) to create PDFs at this end, and the program may be using a later version of the PDF spec than you're using at the office.
