    You can find poor blueprints and inexact 3D stuff here:

    thumbs down for spamming the board with ads (for yourself i'm guessing)

    smcars.net is a nice resource. it has good and bad resources for all kinds of cars and works well for a resource base. you simply cant make a 100% correct car body from a couple of drawings, nomatter how accurate they are, since it always comes down to guessing. also, most plans dont really match up and you have to pick which view looks best.

    While were on the subject (and a nice bump too).

    Does anyone have 308 blueprints?? I have a small one that was printed and very worn out. I just want it for the wall of the garage.

    If there is a hobby shop nearby, you can check out if they have the TAMIYA scale model you are looking for. Tamiya is well known for their accurate scale models, they are a licensed scale model maker of the Enzo and other cars, they even bought and dismantled a Porsche car long ago just to create an accurate model. The model box usually contains drawings and diagrams that will be very useful. You may also order them online, just search for their website.

    If you can get hold of the book about the Tamiya company story, it is an interesting and inspiring story too... (sorry this is off topic!).

    Go with detailed photos instead of blueprints. Then search for the right measurements (wheelbase etc...) and use them as base for the other dimensions which you don't have. Look out for the perspective distorsion, too!!!!!! It's my opinion!

    photos will always be incorrect since you cant get rid of perspective. but sometimes, they will be better than horrible plans.
