I don't know how useful this info is but I came across battleship plans on ebay. Looks like they are large 1 sheet format, 3 view (top, profile, and bow) and cost about 15 USD. Mostly U.S. ships, but I believe I saw russian, french, german, brit, and i think italian. Have a look.

Hmm.. it says the store does not exist. Can you recheck the URL and see if there is a different one?

Hmm, give me a few minutes and I'll dig up the URL I have for it.
Found the store a few months back but haven't found anything interesting on it yet.

The site you've listed is ebay uk, which has different stuff than the US ebay. Your probably right, not much in the way of detailed info (ie. size of the air vents or length of the flag pole) as found in the "anatomy of the ship" series. But they should be to scale, and for the context of a video game, quite suitable for drawing purposes. I'm not sure If Tone is going to be adding lower deck levels in the game. Maybe for damage/damage control (if he does, hopefully more detailed that the Great Naval Battles series), but this might cause programing headaches, and higher system requirements. Finer detail points could possibly be extrapolated from books from the above mentioned series. As it is, I think I could get some Info (ie. real plans) on the USS Delaware if I go to the Mariner's Museum in Newport News, VA., but this won't be for a while. I'll have to check what is on Canadian Ebay.

I've checked....all 3 sites generally the same, just prices in USD, CAD, or Pounds. did see plans for depth charge and launcher, and torpedo tube and aircraft catapult though.

We've recently gone through a similar research process on the Sea Lords project. These two links are worth adding to any list of resources :D

I just ordered some plans from the latter group, David. I'd not seen that one before!

Which ones ? I've just received Von der Tann from them. Very clean drawings and they look excellent for modelling purposes.

Too many. I likely ordered that one.
I have to stop doing this.
