I would like to model an object and for that I need pictures or drawings to use as background image in different camera view such as front, side and top view and in the same scale of the same object. Where can I find those images for modelling?

I wanted to model a motorcycle and i found images from top, front and side but they are not matching scale wise. I tried to rescale them but its very difficult to fit them right from a different point of view. Is there any way to match different images so you get the right scale from different point of view?

Ideally you should try to find 2D plans for the object you're trying to model. There are a number of websites that offer such reference images, such as

If you're using photos then you will always have some perspective distortion. That can be minimized by using a telephoto lens and taking the photos from a greater distance. Even so, things won't match up 100% in different views and you'll need lots of reference pics to help you out.
