    Hi to all.
    I'm new member here from Italy. I'm part of an Italian Aviation association called GAVS (GAVS - Gruppo amici Velivoli Storici)

    I'm looking for the blueprint sheet or technical drawing for the DB605 for a mokup I have to build.

    I'm also looking for the P47's blueprint sheet or technical drawing for the same reason.
    Does the Repubblic Aviation company still exist?Or the Pratt Whitney?
    Anybody knows the historical office where I can ask for copy of the technical design (blueprints)?

    Anyone able to help or provide them?

    Thankyou in advance
    Stefano

    Stephano,

    This could be very difficult. I've never seen a BLUEPRINT of any of the DB 600 series engines published anywhere.

    However, there are several very good cutaway drawings available. If they would be of any help, let me know and I'll put them up.

    Below is a fairly simple side view and end-view of the DB 601 engine.

    Jerry,
    you said the truth concerning the difficulty of obtaining the DB60x's blueprints :( but they exist for sure!:mad:
    I can only imagine why it is so difficult to get them! Anyway should be easier to obtain the P&W R-2800's blueprints! Isn,t it?
    However if you know where I can find several very good cutaway drawings you are welcome.

    Best regards
    Stefano!
