DEKNO Models

A producer of some interesting kits - all are in 1/72 though (Bah, humbug since they have a couple of items that I would really love in 1/48):

I can't believe that in this day and age a commercial website uses a Flash-only page, with no links or options to bypass it. If they can't be bothered, I can't be bothered.

One of their models I've been after for years is the Northrop Delta they produced.

Jim Schubert here in the great PNW did the drawings used to create the Monomail CAD
for the Dekno kit. I have a copy, quite nice, and he plans to also create drawings of the 
Monomail variations. There were only two built (Model 200 and Model 221) and they went
through a variety of mods. My favourite is the Model 200 in lengthened fuselage and
big landing gear pants form.

Did he have anything to do with the actual CAD drawings?

I am with you there!

Yes, in the sense that his line drawings, he's a retired engineer and does it old school on paper,
were done expressly for the Dekno project and were scanned in as the basis for the CAD. Then there
was a back and forth via email between Jim and the Dekno dude (his name escapes me at the moment)
of the CAD drawings and renders to make sure the look was being captured. Jim was never 100%
satisfied with the turtledeck transition, but there always comes a time when ya gotta pull the trigger.
He will of course correct all questionable areas on his own build. ;D
