Peter Westburg Scale View Aircraft Drawings

Peter W. Westburg (1914-1984) is perhaps best known for his superbly accurate and detailed scale view drawings of many military and civil aircraft from the 1930s, all of which were published, with accompanying information, in Model Builder magazine. After Westburg's death in 1984 the National Air and Space Museum acquired the original drawings with the assistance of Paul L. Smith, an associate of Westburg's. This collection consists of 105 ink-on-mylar detail drawings drawn between April 1970 and February 1981 of 37 aircraft from the 1920s and 1930s. All drawings are 30" x 42" in size (76.2 x 106.68 centimeters).
