I am building a 1/48 scale DO217E4 and a 1`/48 scale HS129B. I want to detail them a bit more than just the box. I'd like to make engine mounts for both.I have the Vector resin Gnome Rhones for the Henschel, but am having difficulty finding the BMW's for the Dornier.

I would also like to detail the cockpits a bit than what comes in the box, with details such as the seats, as well as the rudder pedals in the 217. Could anyone help point me in the right direction(s)?

Yes, youtube can be usefull. I'm still trying to scrounge as much data as I can, and am willing to view any source. But I would like to get my hands on material that's of a more technical nature, such as something similar to the Maru Mechanic books. Even though those have Japanese text, the illustrations and numerical data need no translation.

Let me root around my PDF collection as I have a few books which would prove of great use.
