I am lately surching for information about pieces of the American history.
I am gathering different kind of information about the raid of Pearl Harbor make it more understandable for childrens they might just know the date but not every one and that is it.
Those information will be use to make a book which everyone should understand with clear and '' thrilling '' details about that day.
What I am actualy looking for, are drauwing ( oftewell Blue Print ) about the ships present during the Pearl Harbor raid.
I know you might think buy them, true but will be excessive expecieve I just need them for the end draw of the assembly instructions.My intention are to use the draw to details the impacts of the bombs and the torpedo's. Picture seams not enough interesting for the children, a drauw of the ship does miracle because they see where it really happend.
I have been surching for those draw a long time but everyone want to make money out NICE FOR THE SURVIVORS buy the way,how to try make the jough understand the scale of these horrible day, that was themorale part of it .

32 of you seen this call for help of you did not understand what i meant of you can not help of and i hope i am wrong there you do not give a poo-poo
To make sure i am wrong there here is a draw of what i mean.
Every modeller when they are busy building a scale model follow a instruction assembly map which at the end show the model and sometimes the way to paint the model.
This draw is what i need nothing else only the draw of those ships

That one is my own from constructo 1:58 scale wood model of Prince de Neufchatel so i show you in a way what i mean.
For the other modeler this is what i mean

I am one of the 32 (!) persons who have read your post and I would gladly helped you out if I could, but ... You put a ship question in a Diorama Forum, what the heck are you expecting?!?!? that we are walking museums, next time put a post like this in the correct forum and secondly I am getting fed up with your whining, give the members of this site time to read your postings and collect the data, I heave read other post of you and (almost) always you are complaining that nobody is responding, give us a break will ye
