Wingspan would be the same; Mk.I fuselage is 9" shorter than the IX.  There were 1/48th scale drawings, of the Mk.I, in Scale Models, April 1971, which are still some of the best ever done.  I have a set, and, if you'd like a copy, let me know.
On the other hand, the drawing is available from My Hobby Store www.myhobbystore.com.  It's listed at £7.00, but will take some finding (should be under "Line Drawings," somewhere.)

Thanks Edgar I wasnt sure on fuse length or profile for sure but thanks for th eoffer I have some nice drawings I just was concerned I might have missed something when comparing as with any 3 views when ppl draw them they say a scale but when enlarged could be off some.
