Inside this set are more than 15,000 blueprints that are scanned from WW2 microfiche (refer historical note below) as well as 2,000 pages of technical manuals. It is a top rated set for Engineering Students, large scale model makers, aircraft restoration companies, parts manufacture and reconditioning companies and Museum display builders.
The P-51 A, B, C, D, H and K are covered in the blueprint section. Flight Manuals, the Parts Catalogue and Service Manuals, historical photos and construction photos also present. This publication has been the inspiration for quite a few projects already. Historical Note: Microfiche is virtually the sole remaining historical record of the many thousands of drawings that were produced during design and manufacture of this aircraft during the 1940s. Microfiche was the medium of choice for transporting factory data to front line repair units during WW2. A projector and screen was used to view the blueprints and this method has its advantages when you think of the disorganized mess that could be created with paper in an airfield workshop in war conditions. 100 foot long rolls of film were used and as a result the drawings were always in order. This package is print enabled and you will be able to import the blueprints into the CAD or 3D application of your choice as a background for manual tracing and development of new engineering drawings.
