Are there any plans to make a new Space Shuttle Operator's Manual or any blueprints of the shuttle?
Prepare for lift-off using the step-by-step instructions for launch and ascent. Soar into the sky consulting the authentic gatefold reproduction of the Shuttle's instrument panel. Operate the remote manipulator arm, the space telescope, and the data relay satellite as you communicate with ground control. Chart your space flight using the authentic fold-out orbital map. Hurtle back through the Earth's atmosphere to land the aircraft gently like a glider.

Man, I must have gone through a half-dozen copies of that book over the years. I'd hoped for a second revision, but that would seem unlikely at this point.

I don't know about "blueprints," but you might want to check out Joel Powell and Lee Brandon-Cremer's Space Shuttle Almanac e-book (PDF). It has hundreds of diagrams of Shuttle, Mir, and ISS hardware, including schematics of payloads for every Shuttle mission. Well worth a look.
