    Try the US National Archives for more gory detail than you'll ever need to build a model.

    If you're just planning to build a combat model, though, what you'll get from the usual sources (Goff, Floating Drydock, Taubman, etc.) should be more than enough.

    If you have specific requests for detail shots of the NC, I went there on vacation last summer and took 240 pics of lots of things aboard :) I don't intend to email 240 pics, though, so I'll respond to specific requests :)


    For everyone waiting on OS2 Kingfishers, I got bugged in person by several guys at the fast guns battle this past weekend :p It's coming!!

    Floating Drydock has the best plans for her. (I've got copies of all of them and neith Taubman nor Goff can compare with Floating Drydock on US Battleships)

    I second the comment on Floating Drydock, I have a set of their NC plans and they are very nice.

    Or a 8) or 8D or even a =^)

    But not a :p

    The Battleship Washington site has sufficient plans for you to build a North Carolina class battleship:
