Can anyone point me to an ACCURATE set of plans for the Gripen?

The ones in the CMK book are suspect and I can't really find any others.
Anyone got some credible sources for drawings or plans?

Keep in mind that a/c manufacturers rarely produce "accurate" drawings

Unless some aircraft enthusiast has sat down with a whole bunch of factory data and a whole bunch of photos and drawn them, I doubt that a really accurate (in our understanding of the word as modelers) set of plans exists. Aircraft manufacturers don't produce the kind of drawings that you're picturing in your mind. They have no need to. They'll usually produce general arrangement drawings for use in manuals and advertising, but they're often (by our standards) wildly inaccurate representations of the real thing. They serve the purpose for which they're intended though.
