Roman Vasyliev has a free book called 'Lost Eagles'.
It has pictures, info, and 3-views about WWI era prototypes and rare planes.
Scroll towards the bottom of this page:

He sells paper-card models of some of the planes. The book contains a free model of the Aviatik 30.40 parasol fighter.

Cool link showing airfoils for 100's of aircraft


Found this link through the Technicalities section of Flying magazine. It lists the airfoil designs for a huge list of aircraft. Granted, just because the airfoil was good for the full scale aircraft doesn't mean it suits a flying model (been reading Carlos' book on model airplane design) but I think the list is still pretty cool.
