Realize that you only provided ONE 3D suitable image of the three that are required for most modelers to tackle the plane.

I may have a crack at "whipping something up" while I'm sitting in hotel room tonight. As basic as that plane looks, the top view may be enough, with the photos used for positioning the wing.

"Dude?" You weren't really born in 1910, were you?

How about a picture showing the definition of the cowl?

Nevermind about the cowl, I think I found a pic. If you want that colorscheme, you're going to need to provide a scan of the decals, or a straight-on, no flash pic of each graphic.

Could you take a picture of the entire fuselage, side view, without the wing on it? Make sure that you cannot see the top or bottom of the fuselage, only the side.

One more, if you would. Take one from the front of the plane, looking back. Straight down the spinner. Make sure you can see as little of the fuselage as possible, but looking down it. I hope you understand what I mean. A front view, with as little skew as possible. Make sure there's equal amounts of fuselage seen on all four sides.

Jeff, it will help you to remember that the sides are cut from 1/8" light ply, that has pieces lazered out to make it lighter. So this means they are flat, from top to bottom, with curve from front to back.
