I found this starship blueprint on internet:

Enterprise blueprint

I would like to start working on it from the warp drive.

I am using the blueprint as background image, but front, back and bottom orthographic view do not match. I will try to explain my problem with an example.

A good starting point to make the warp drive is from a cylinder, using the cursor as point of view. I made it match the blueprint using the bottom view.

enter image description here

Then, since front and view were "broken", I rotated the cylinder again to match the blueprint.

enter image description here

But, as you can see, front and back view are perfect, but bottom view is broken.

I cannot make my cylinder match the blueprint position- and rotation-wise.

How can I solve this problem? Am I misunderstanding the meaning of "front", "back" and "bottom" in Blender?

There are some useful controls on the Background Images, Giovarco, that could solve Your problem. As You could see on the image below in the green rectangle, You could rotate and move the image using X, Y and ROTATION parameters so You have to rotate the TOP view 90 degrees and then use the X and Y parameters to line it up. Hope it helps buddy.
