I'm not exactly sure what other resources he should have used to do higher fidelity work.
Watch the daily reruns on TV and note some observations perhaps?

He did that! But you have to keep in mind that there were no VHS or DVD's back then, so not being able to freeze-frame what you want to take a closer look at makes it hard to pin down the design of a set, when it only appears onscreen for a few seconds at a time and the camera keeps focusing on actors and not background. Heck even with these things it can still be hard to do without the aid computers and/or original plans for these obscure sets, neither of which FJ had in those days either!
