Below is a USAF U2 Flight Manual. Prior to being saved to the .pdf format it was copied with little concern for cleanliness and
true black on white. Note a greyish tint of the pages. Does anyone have a clearer/cleaner .pdf file of U2 AF(C)-1-1 to share?
At the bottom is a print-screen rendered transparent to clean up.

After looking for a NIB HP Plotter/Printer to print plans we discovered a Kentucky HP distributor selling NIB but "end of life"
HP DesignJet graphic printers @ less than 50% original price. They had exactly what we needed, an HP 36" DesignJet-T650
and offered an additional 20% discount if we picked it up. In addition to its 36" plot width the T650 prints traditional plotter
roll/cut sheet transparencies, vellum, and opaque width~lengths down to a standard 8.5"x11" sheet.

Have not been successful finding a U2R Senior cockpit drawing comparable to our A6 cockpit line art. Not going to spend the
$$$ on the books found on the internet beyond what I already have on the shelf...however I scored "color" CAD drawings
with minimum perspective offset. These are U2R Senior panel sections drawn for flight sims. Below are a few examples. 

After printing individual switches, dials, and push-push buttons they are placed onto each panel section before cast for Alumilite
RTV molds.

..............Each instrument, switch, panel frame, and LED/OLED screen are seperate pieces of the U2's. This will be the case for the A6's as well.

U2S/RS Cockpit 

The white dots are holes for either mounting panel groups or location of hooded and open toggle switches and dials.

............................

There have been multiple instrument panel configs over the 68 years Lockheed's U2s have flown in the world's skies
with the latest sensing, sampling, and visual resources for peace and prosperity of the Free World. True too for both
the left and right side panels as well. We will offer two cockpit configs...the 2A and 2SR (Senior Span).

Ah...isn't it wonderful how plotters do not include "any" paper with the plotter...and only enough ink to validate registration and testing to
see that each of the four colors will print. Of course its convenient to print on as small as 8.5" x 11" single sheets during setup.

I am back to painting and building out the A6 cockpit tub.
