Default High resolution engineering drawings for F-4U and FW-190A wanted.

Hey Warbird guys
I'm currently involved in 2 projects. One is my old mans scratch built F-4U Corsair in 1/6 scale. The other is a SIST FW190 i am considering for myself.
The problem i am facing is lacking accurate drawings to draw up everything i need (Cockpit interior on both incl cross sections to make a 3d model of the hull, gear and guns on the FW190).
Either i find the usual low resolution 5-views and cross sections from the usual sites, or i find offers to buy entire CDs with 23000 factory drawings priced in the 3-digit range, from which i will find only 2-3 pages useable. Alternatively you find purchaseable prints in large scale....but then i need to find a scanning service.
Maybe someone has stumbled across something that he may be willing to share with me? Like i said im not looking for 23000 drawings of each screw used. Good large accurate cross sections (especially with multiple cuts in the cockpit sections) and some internals as shown below would be wonderful. Those are the Bentley drawings that can only be obtained as large prints....sadly i have yet to find them digitally in good scale.
If you dont want to post here let me know via PM

Many thanks!

Cheers Hank

That looks good. Can you scan it so it is free of distortions and perspectice? Would very much appreciate it

The FW190 CD on ebay is a good investment for what you are looking for.

Outside of that, the AL Bentley drawings are the next best.

Thanks. There are various offerings on ebay and the web. There are some reviews of them on the Warbirdforum, and most of the guys were highly disappointed by what they got. Id buy the bentley drawings, but they are only available from Albert as hard copies. This will set me back much more than i wanted, considering i only need 2-3 sections.
If you have a source that you consider worthy please do share

buy them from bentley. Otherwise if we stop supporting these people they will stop doing it.

the CD’s have far more “filler” of stuff you’ll never use for a model, but they also have multiple sheets of engineering cross sections for the fuselage, wing fillets, wing, tail, pretty much everything needed to make a 100% accurate Fw190
