I've got the book Dreadnoughts in Camera, which is basically a photo book, with lots of great shots of the RN dreadnoughts being built, in various stages of construction. It costs about 20 in the UK, but if someone doing modelling wanted to borrow it, that wouldn't be a problem.

Not that it's anywhere as accurate as the "Dreadnoughts in Camera" book, I finally got in the post today a book called "The Grand Fleet - A War-Time Sketch book", published at War's end. It has some very nice drawings in by an architect in the R.N.V.R. from his time with the "Large Light Cruiser" H.M.S. Glorious - Scapa Flow, Rosyth, the battle off Heligoland and many drawings made from the foretop. Some very nice profile drawings of various vessels of the fleet, 46 full-page illustrations in all. Only cost me 5 as well. Well recommended to war-art enthusiasts I think.
