Those days there was usually a cutaway drawing in Autosport... maybe someone here has the right one?

At the very least you'll be able to get the position of Jackie's chin strap just right.

I've got the Autosport line drawing from Setright's "The Grand Prix Car (1954-1966)" which is done by Theo Page and is excellent. But I am looking for side/front/plan views such as the one Doug provided above.
I would snap up such a book and who knows where I'll be on my project by then. (I've never scratch built a car before.) My library has stayed static for years due to the usual financial compromises of family life, but it's time to stock it with a few new one's. Hasn't Doug got some out (or in the works) on BRM?
Thanks for coming to my rescue again. Your response to my BRM colour thread was great. The line drawing above is just what I've been looking for. I've created a plan view in AutoCAD largely from several excellent pictures in the Cimarosti book and from my Scalextric P61 (not a great representation, but seems very true to scale). This view will help me validate some of my guesstimates. I have some questions about the tartan strip on Jackie's helmet, but I'm going to ask them in a seperate thread.
Thanks for the offer, but as I mentioned above, I have the Cimarosti book and the picture you mention is one of two I've been using thus far. It's an outstanding photo and one of the shots that inspired this project.
Thanks again for your help folks. I'll keep you posted as my work moves along. I just hope I get it done before Fly, Ninco or Scalextric come out with '60's F1 cars to their incredible current standard of detail.
