These drawings have been carefully researched and drawn by Gerald L.Y.Hitch who is respected for the preparation of high standard scale drawings and as a
constructor of ship models.
The degree of detail suits the requirements of the advanced model maker as well as making these drawings of interest in their own right to those interested in ships.
The drawings were originally made to various scales with many being photographically or computer enlarged or reduced to other scales (as noted in the price lists). It should be noted that the photographic scale changes do not reproduce the same quality of line as tie original
drawing or as scale changes currently made by computer.
Extensive enlargements from the smaller "as drawn" scale may suffer a little in quality and there will not be the same amount of detail that there would have been if the drawing had been made at this scale. The range of scales include 1/192, 1/96, 1/72, 1/64, 1/48, 1/35, 1/24 and 1/128 but not all drawings are available in each scale.
The majority of drawings show full hull lines; the few that do not, have hull sections only but at sufficient intervals to enable satisfactory hull construction (many
models have been made from them).
