Fontessa, are there any drawings that show the shape of the hull stations/bulkheads of any of the Armed Merchant cruisers? Potentially scratch-building one for R/C Warship Combat and I'd like to get the hull shape correct.

I don't think we can get a drawing showing the dimensions of each part. Some ships have outfits called 一般艤装図 but I don't know if there is an outfit for the auxiliary cruiser. Below is the first half of 鈴谷 Suzuya outfits. Maybe the outfits are big, so it's hard to copy them.

Can you show the Kanji Title of your book? 船型図?

Well, there isn't any Kanji. Its Polish, and its not really a "book" its just 6 bi-fold pages of plans (11.75" x 16" folded out).
Showing the lay-outs with hull-stations/bulkheads/rib shapes of the Matsu and two other ships of the class.

Matsu 1944

Keyaki 1/1945 & 6/1945

Take 6/1945

Plan sizes are 1/700, 1/350 and 1/200.

I was using it to illustrate the hull drawings I'm looking for.
