Help!
Looking for Little Nell 3 views

I have been scouring the web for a while looking for these, and thought I could ask here as well.
I am creating a 3D model of a Wallis autogyro for the FlightGear (http://www.flightgear.org) flight simulator, and am looking for drawings of the real thing. I have plenty of pictures of several Wallis models, but so far had no luck in finding something to help me fix the dimensions with any accuracy. I know there used to be 1/32 scale plastic models of it, though, and was hoping someone may have scans of the paint scheme guides? The only other set of 3 views I could find was a scan of a brochure for another Wallis model I found by searching the rcgroups forums, but these were scanned at a low resolution and were anyway incongruent with regard to the sizes. Any help would be greatly welcome, also in refining the flight model once the 3D model is done.

Thanks, that is sure a great help. For the dimensions it's not an issue, since I have them from the brochure, and in any case I can always scale the entire thing once it's modeled, as long as I have the proper proportions. Rchopper56, the catalogue you linked seems to have only the side view too listed, I fear it might be the same as that mnowell129 linked. And I am not really keen on buying a rare model that I probably won't end up building, since I already have plenty others that are awaiting my attention.. . It is plenty cheap enough (well, it's cheap before taxes and shipping, at least), but it would be a waste of a pretty rare model.

Your attached thumbnail looks OK but it looks like a double exposure when enlarged. Can you correct this?
Brandano,
The 3viewcatalog.pdf lists the Wallis as a side view but the code states that it also contains history and dimensions. It may not be the same as Mikey linked for it is 11" x 17" paper.
