    I am looking for some detailed pictures or blueprints/diagrams of the riveting arrangements mainly on the top and under the wings (horizontal and vertical lines) and also the main body, for a CG model I am working on (MkVb).

    These are the ones not normally visible in pictures except extreme close ups.

    I have hundreds of googled pics, some of which are not bad, but they dont provide the level of detail needed to finish the model.

    Any assistance would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Many thanks Wurger, thats exactly what I'm after. Do you have them in any higher resolution? If so I could use them without any extra work.

    If not, no probs, they are perfect for me to use to re-draw them on my texture map.

    I have posted a short work in progress vid in the video section.

    Gav.

    Glad I helped a little bit.Unfortunately I don't have them in any higher res but these are Tif files so there shouldn't be any problem to scale them.
