I'm amazed how much info is on that website. The only stuff I recall was a couple of those shots in Warplanes of the Third Reich.

Hi Alex, I asked the same question (for the same reason) on the Luftwaffe Experten Message Boards (LEMB) in December, as I also purchased a kit of this plane (1/48th Resin). I see you are asking this question on that message board also. If you search lower down the Projects and Prototypes section of LEMB, you will find my question (I'm firelily on LEMB). I got some interesting replies, but no drawings or photo's of the interior yet. The best reference by far is "Kurt Tank's Photo Album 1940-1943" compiled by Roy Powell & Barry Ketley, Flight Recorder Publications Ltd., England, 2004, ISBN 0-954605-3-1. I have this book, and it has some lovely close-ups, but only limited views inside through the front canopy. Good luck with the model, and let me know how you get on with it. Steve

That B9 article was translated from a German 1970s magazine called Luftfahrt International (nr. 12). I have that magazine, by the way, but there are no more photos, I'm afraid. PS. Just ordered the Tank photo album. Thanks for the tip! ;)
