    Do you really think that you're going to get any "real" engineering drawings from any company for free? I doubt you'd get some even if you offered to pay for them. Engineering drawings are usually closely held assets. Even on a product that is over 50 years old. You can always try writing Vickers to see if they will let you have a copy, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Your best bet is to find someone that has done scale representations and go from there.

    I have emailed you, but no response, I have in fact numerous drawings of the MkXIV Spitfire, but which ones you need is a different story, there are thousands down to the last rivet size or wing former. Please advise as to your requirements.

    Hello, would I would be most interested in looking at your Spitfire plans. I am in the process of staring a complete new build, including manufacturing a RR Griffon engine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Paul Vickers. If you could email me that would be great.

    Hi There

    I am also interested in drawing a Spitfire in 3D CAD. Would it be possible to still get the plans from you? Pretty Please?
