The errors inherent in scanning and tracing an image would be unacceptable to them and the labor would be prohibitive.

Not neccesarily. It depends on the quality of your image. Of course a small image would not be of sufficient quality, where larger images are. Instead of images you could also use markers (vector curves) to use as background geometry. Whether you are reproducing an existing lines plan or a real-life model (which is possible not very fair anymore due to distortions ) doesn’t really matter as long as your background geometry reflects the target model accurately.

As far as labour is concerned, I happen to do this type of work a lot and can recreate almost any model in a matter of hours.
