I don't know how accurate the drawings are as compared to an actual Strad are , but if you can find a complete copy of You Can Make a Stradivarius Violin by Reid, Joseph 1967 there are some fairly decent full size drawings (24" X 36" I think) in the book for the violin, the mould and all the required tools.
