These plans will be a great help for those that want to detail up their kit. Thanks for sharing.

Those are some fantastic drawings that you have posted, and many thanks for doing that! I really liked the salvage drawing of the Arizona - that sort of inspires me to go get a kit of the AZ and build it up to try and match it the salvage drawing.

One interesting thing I've noticed, is that I always thought the Arizona and other BBs of the time had two smokestacks, but those drawings sure show different.

I'm just wondering, is it possible to get any of these kinds of drawings from the Navy? Or maybe through the National Archives? When I visited the USS Wisconsin a few years ago, in the window of the gift shop, there was a big (probably 8 or 9 feet in length, or so it seemed) drawing of the Wisconsin in profile. Unfortunately, there weren't any copies in the gift shop available for purchase.

Thanks again for posting those drawings!
