    I'm working on learning how to design models starting with a local landmark building. I cant find any really detailed drawings of it online and all the photos are from a ground view so proportions are skewed. Does anyone know how to go about finding detailed drawings of buildings without getting flagged for being a possible terrorist?

    I dunno. Tax office or permit office? Building manager? Library? Historical society? USGS National High Altitude Photography (NHAP) for aerial photographs?

    Libraries are excellent places to locate books on architecture, commercial or residential, invest a bit of time at your local branch to see what's available on the shelves.

    Also while on the subject, speak to a reference librarian, such a conversation can be most rewarding and worth the effort to make such acquaintance.

    Good Hunting !
