I'd like to model the turret in full detail, but was hinderred by the lack of reference materials. Any (good quality) picture and drawing is welcomed.

I have already got the anatomy series Dreadnought book and British Battleships of WWI. Need more from other source.

Thank you in advance.

Frankly, I find these details hard to find in sufficiently detailed and yet visually parsible form.

That said, I find the book "The Big Gun" by Peter Hodges a good detailed study of the sorts of factors never really covered in detail (hydraulics, etc). It offers special detail on the 15" Mark I mounting.

Yes, I forgot to mention that book, a very good one on the guns with lot of drawings. But still not enough for a high fidelity reconstruction.

I remembered that I saw pictures that sailors are posed in front of the guns inside the turret. Those pictures are very helpful to understand the mechanism. If there are any such ones, that will be good too.
