3-View and Aircraft Resources

Rev.5 - 01-MARCH-2006

We've all asked several times for 3-views of this or that aircraft. In this respect, I am a pack rat. I collect links to sites offering 3-views and plans whether or not I ultimately use them. This is a collection of my favorite sources. I don't pretend to have "discovered" them, but I share them with fellow hobbysists. If you have a source that is not listed here, feel free to send me an e-mail.

Typically, I have three sources for my collection of plans and three views:

NOTE: this listing is by no means complete. Also, this page is directed towards sources of plans and 3-views. There are many other books, sites, and magazines that provide with excellent resources as to colors, camouflage, and other information.

Since my aviation interests tend towards "vintage" civilian and military aircraft so you will find that the sources in this initial listing lean in that direction.

Commercial plan sites

  1. Bob's Aircraft Documentation - The premier site, in my opinion, for plans/drawings. Bob Banka offers both drawings and photo paks. Downloadable catalog.
  2. James's Morrow Scale Drawings plans directed to the flying scale modeller.
