One of the Industry’s Oldest Presentations…
Blueprints explain quickly the most difficult mechanical concepts


In order to understand the principles, one must first have something tangible to grasp onto from this era…
— something you can see, touch, feel,
and hold on to.

— blueprints tell stories, have magic, and inspire.

The Future of Developed Blueprints…

The Future of Blueprinting..?

  • An ongoing trend has been the discontinued production of the proprietary supplies needed to produce our line of distinguished aircraft blueprints.
  • The chemically coated /modified stock required for these type of blueprints is no longer readily available.
  • As recent as 1989, we had three manufactures that could supply us with the raw materials needed to provide you these old-style aviation blueprints, today we have but one.

Through it all, we have managed to keep our prices ridiculously low.
It's fair to say: “Blueprints (already rarely seen) are unique and collectable - blueprints will indeed one day be very rare…”

  We hope to be able to offer aviation blueprints for some time to come… as to that, there is some uncertainty.
Any changes as to the availability of our aircraft blueprints will immediately be updated here. If we offer a blueprint on our website, it is available and ready to ship to you.

It would not be much of a stretch to suggest that collecting and preserving your favorite blueprints would prove a wise investment.
