    Just received a very helpful file transfer from the SOAS Archive in London showing a plan with the changes made to the SS Hunan. Just go to the local copy shop to print the 800mb file.

    So the plan issued in the 1990s was that for this later version. interesting considering that the ship was built 1932 and then re- fitted in 1958 and then scrapped 4 years later in 1962. So, unusual that a plan for the short lived version was considered for a model rather than that of its appearance for 26 years.

    Very good so far.
    The hull has been tested and the prop and rudder tested and now am creating ballast by making lead blocks to suit.

    The Glasgow archives had plans and photos and the staff was very obliging. Also I have found that the Swires ship business archive is held in London and they have a plan showing the changes which were made in 1953 or 1958. I cannot determine yet which because the image in the email reply was not of high definition. The staff there to date have been helpful.
    Then I will have to decide on whether to proceed with the later fitting out ore finish the superstructure in its original as fitted.
    Built in 1932 and scrapped in 1962 clearly it remained in its original fitting twice longer than the time from re- fitting to being scrapped.

    Likely this would account for the lack of photos in its second fitting.

    Don't have all the details but it largely appears to be an addition of poop deck superstructure and to such on the rear main deck. Needless there will be details lost or added in the area where these rooms were added. So will have to compare and decide and finish the build.
    If I can see a copy of the drawing for the revised fitting I will likely make a list and images for the benefit of others in treated in building this vessel.
