  1. There is another remark about chatter grooves in the same volume Clyde M. Leavitt;NRJ19(1972), 257 - 258, in a modern application.
  2. I do have the hard cover version from 1997 and in that version the table is correct. The table is titled 'Material and fastening of square frames'. It starts with "Alarm" and ends with "Lamplighter" in part 1 and continues with "Lightfoot" to "Young America" in part 2. IF you need I probably can create a copy of these pages.
  3. If one is more technically and historically inclined there is also the book by Lengerer and Ahlberg, The Yamato Class and Subsequent Planning. Not necessarily what one wants as a modeller but lots of additional information that could be of interest if one is looking for information about the actual construction, planing, and history of this type of ship. I haven't seen a mention of this book around here.
  4. You may want to look at bookdepository. They are meanwhile actually owned by Amazon but quite often cheaper, at least for me here in Canada. I got my copy of the AOTS Yamato/Musashi within the usual 5 days across the Atlantic some 10 days ago. There are some annoying errors in it, e.g. don't trust the scales. And some drawings are in smaller scale (but the description didn't change) than in the first issue. It is good to have both if you don't want to use a magnifier.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
