The most recent drawings of a Staaken I recall appeared in Scale
Models when Ray Rimmel built up the Contrail kit. I seem to remember the
drawings being 1/144 to fit on the page. The book "The German Giants" by
Grosz and Haddow is probably the best available source for photos of these
machines. I'm interested to learn if anyone else has found other
references for these a/c.
