Whilst high def photos of the RAN ships are easy to come by, sadly the RN sisters are generally very blurry of cluttered with other objects that make seeing details impossible. Hence after a week of searching, I am biting the bullet and asking here.

Any source/reference materials would be greatly appreciated

There's no such thing as "nothing left to draw" If you can down 10 pints and draw, you're doing alright by my standards

I will have to put that computer and scanner together tomorrow then. I have not had it together since we moved to this house a year ago.

I am still waiting for the Aussie 'N's to make an appearance?

Could be worth an investment?

That is cheap - I paid NZ$50 for my copy

Yeah might be indeed. My local library had that book but they stopped stocking it a few years back. It's more of the Royal navy side of things that is missing though, the RAN website is very impressive when it comes to images, weirdly HD for a lot of them, suspicious almost


The RAN "N"s are done and I kid you not I was dividing them into their separate templates just before
