Hints for downloading and printing

  • You choose from two different versions to download: Original sheet scans and files that have been edited using image enhancement software. They are cleaner and crisper, but in the process lost some of the charme of the old sheets. Our thanks to W. Holzinger for editing the sheets.
  • Printing instructions: Use thin cardboard of about 160 - 220 g/cm2.
  • Choose the option "Scale to fit / fill entire paper" to get these scales:
  • Printing on A4: Scale approx. 1:250, model length approx. 35 cm
  • Printing on A3: Scale approx. 1:175, model length approx. 70 cm
