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).
All Peter Westburg Scale View Aircraft Drawings are copyrighted.
If you intend to reproduce any of these drawings, or any portion of a
