    Stan,
    I did see that FD had hull plans for the Texas, a New York Class BB. The follow-on class to the Wyomings. Dimensionaly they are quite close, only 11 ft differece in length and a few ft in width. Draft was the same. Building her in 144th scale would mean, if my math is correct(doubtful) that there would be about a 1/4" difference in lenght between a NY and a Wyoming. Just a thought.

    Sorry Stan, But I have struck out as well for Wyoming's stations. It seems that even NARA does not have them. I'll check with the Smithsonian and I have one other possibility, but don't hold your breath.

    Thanks Toradog,

    I've found plans for the Alabama with the hull cross sections or what he is calling the stations. However, once again for the Wyoming class or USS Arkansas BB33 they do not have the "stations". I have found multiple overhead and side profile views just not the cross section to lay up a build.

    Thanks for your assistance!

    While FD may not have the plans in the scale you desire, they can be enlarged or reduced at a photo shop.
    Otherwise, you will find the plans you need here:

    The page I sent the link for states that not all files are available online, and suggests you contact them.

    Regarding Alabama, I took hundreds of photos of her a few years back. If you need detail shots, let me know.

    I found the architectural drawings there but they did not have the cross section for the Arkansas. I also found another site, https://maritime.org/doc/plans/index.php the San Francisco Maritime. Here I found the Alabama with the cross sections needed for forming her up. So for now I am still on the hunt for the Arkansas or Wyoming for the cross sections.

    If you can't find what you're looking for, you might try the U.S. national archives. https://catalog.archives.gov/id/53483720

    Unfortunately not, for it is an Iowa Class battleship. However if I can't find one of the other two the Mighty MO is my third choice. I am looking for one that is not popularly modeled otherwise the Missouri would be my first choice.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I am in search of plans in the scale of 1/144 of the Wyoming class battleship BB33 USS Arkansas and the battleship BB60 USS Alabama. Any help of finding a site that would have these plans would be greatly appreciated.
