    Thanks. Much obliged. One of the drawings has the oridinates for the fuselage station points - very useful. More numbers needed wing rib ordinates, tail, cowl and anything on the undercarriage.

    If you have not seen those before, I suspect that you problably have not found all the plans from f4ucorsair.com. Those are the best set of blueprints on the net, AFAIK.

    Let me include all the others for you:

    You could also contact Chance-Vought for information. Is my believe that they keep a "historic" section where all this information should be available.
