W123 blueprints and reference photos

Being a LEGO-builder myself, I'm thinking of creating a LEGO model for our W123 sedans, but I need blueprints and reference photos.

This will be a long term project, as I don't have many yellow pieces to fit my car's color, so I'll start using MLCAD first (3D LEGO modelling program). Scale-wise, I'm still undecided as to what scale to build in, but my 1:24 scale LEGO cars http://www.mocpages.com/folder.php/352 won't be too bad for a start.

What do you guys think? Any links to good and clear blueprints are appreciated.[:)]

Thanks!

RE: W123 blueprints and reference photos

Any views (front, side, back, top, even underside) are OK! [:D] As I'm also building a 3D model that would help greatly, plus having one in my own (err...the apartment) garage!

[:D][8D][:)] Thanks!

RE: W123 blueprints and reference photos

i sent you a PM about how you would like the information...

what 3-d program do you use?

i like the legomechs!, part of my senior thesis was on my own mechs, i made a 1:18 scale model of one, and a personal battleship to go with it, never got around to my tanks, planes, other - had to finish everything else.

RE: W123 blueprints and reference photos

I don't remember where I got this from, but some guy planned to restore his W123 and made this document. Only side view, though.

RE: W123 blueprints and reference photos

BF_JC230: You could still send those prints if you want, I could use a second reference. [:D]

Zedd: Visit this link:

...you have to register (free), though. No biggie. And if both of you need the high-res images, I could email them to you. [:P]
