A bit of context, from the same site

1927
Early in the morning on May 20, 1927 Charles A. Lindbergh took off in The Spirit of St. Louis from Roosevelt Field near New York City. Flying northeast along the coast, he was sighted later in the day flying over Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. From St. Johns, Newfoundland, he headed out over the Atlantic, using only a magnetic compass, his airspeed indicator, and luck to navigate toward Ireland. The flight had captured the imagination of the American public like few events in history. Citizens waited nervously by their radios, listening for news of the flight. When Lindbergh was seen crossing the Irish coast, the world cheered and eagerly anticipated his arrival in Paris. A frenzied crowd of more than 100,000 people gathered at Le Bourget Field to greet him. When he landed, less than 34 hours after his departure from New York, Lindbergh became the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

1997
Seventy years later, on an early May morning in 1997, a small pilot-less airplane called the Atlantic Navigator will take off from an airfield near New York City and follow Lindbergh's historic route across the Atlantic. Television crews and newspaper reporters will be on hand to record the takeoff, and will follow the flight as it progresses. The airplane will be flown by a computer, guided by modern electronic navigation equipment. Pictures and data collected by sensors on the airplane will be relayed by satellite, and made available within seconds to the general public through the World-Wide-Web. Grade school students will see the same views that Lindbergh must have seen during his famous flight seventy years earlier. When TheAtlantic Navigator lands near Paris in the early evening, 35 hours after departing New York, it will become the first pilotless airplane to fly across the Atlantic.

Hi, very impressive artwork! I´ve got Myhra´s Book ("German ideas from ... for a proposed space program"[2014]). So my question is, what about the 570 other pictures not included in Myhra´s book? Can we see more here, please?
Greetings

As I understand, the size of the drawing is the problem ? There should be accurate 3-views on the net, but
scaling them to the 1/14 scale actually may not be the best solution.
But from wiki, you can download a 3-view as a svg- (vector graphic) file (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Boeing_B-29_Superfortress_3-view.svg,
which can be enlarged without loss of quality. And modifying and improving it, is quite simple, too. And you
probably don't need the postion of every rivet, do you ?
There are commercial drawings available, but I don't know, if they really are better.

Dear Jemiiba,

I do apologize for not having answered immediately something most detailled  :-[, but my English is approximate  ::) and a health worry tortures me a little. My objective is not of course to draw a hyperdetailed model but at less give it the best exact forms because as said higher the simplicity of the forms is not necessarily the easiest to be reproduced. Besides in one of my reference docs (B&S Vol.10 p.29 better than Warbirdtech Vol.14 p.11?) I indeed found the reproduction of the location of the frames of fuselage as well as ribs of wings and stabilizing plans. There is neither diameters nor length of the nervures other than extremities (I bought the plans Aerospace, but the most beautiful girl of the world cannot give that what she has...). However it is already that and I progress to give something usable and totaly free rights for fans who would like build a "little" 1/14 B-29, electical engined or PSS ... has condition to know how to stick two pieces of wood and of polystyrene. What I do not doubt  ;D !

Regards

Tonton
