I have little to provide other than a timeframe and some visual cues. This was a book I had in the late 70s, marketed to older kids. It was on cheap, dark paper (think of modern puzzle books) and I believe it was printed in landscape format. It had a collection of spaceships with diagrams pointing to different engines, weapons, etc. I don't think it was tied to any existing intellectual property--seems like it was probably targeted at Star Wars fans who'd go "Ooo, this is about space fighters."
Could be the Terran Trade Authority Handbook - Spacecraft 2000-2100 AD. This was published in 1978 originally so the time-frame fits.
The book contains a lot of colour illustrations of spacecraft, which isn't mentioned in the question, although there are wire drawings of the ships as well, together with specifications of the craft.
There's a youtube video as well of the book being browsed, some of the illustrations made me go "ooooh! spaceships" although the OP mentions space fighters, but that might fit too
