Using reference blueprints

Okay, I found some blueprints for the P-38 Lightning and I wanted to open them in blender, can I do this? If so, how should I?

You can import images as Background Images by just drag-dropping them into the 3d view. Then you have a bunch of options in the N-panel… to set size and opacity, bind to certain view axis etc.

You can also set Empties to show referece images, in their Object Data tab.

Okay, thank you, I got it set up! This is going to be a great experiment…
