    Hello,

    I would like to know if there was anyway I could get a decent resolution of a B-17 schematic. I'm hoping for something around 800-1000 pixel range but I will take what I can get.

    I already have the schematic pictures which are 300 pixels large, but they are too small. I can't see any of the details even when I blow them up to the size that I want.

    I am basically looking for the front, top, and/or side pictures so that I can use them as references.

    The reason I am looking for them is because I am going to create a 3d model of the She Hasta which my grandfather was the tail gunner in when it went down. My grand father passed away when I was in 3rd grade but I remember him, and want to do this to commemorate him and brave soldiers that fought in WWII.

    Also if anyone has the nose art from the She Hasta that would be greatly appreciated. I have a couple of pictures already, and could probably recreate the nose art from that, but I was hoping for more of a straight on shot.

    Thank you in advance.

    Matthew
