As the title says, I'm looking for a good set of plans or even a decent paper model of the USS Texas BB-35. I'm thinking of trying to build her in 1/200; I recently got the 1/200 Arizona and have been bitten by the large scale bug. Any help would be appreciated.

what time period as I have the Booklet of General Plans 1944 of that ship? I also have a drawing that has 22 cross sections, 9.54mb 13574x7462 pixels.

Any time from 1941 to 1945, so a set of 1944 plans would work.

except for the cross sections that you have to go somewhere else to get which I have which i'll use in my OBB thread. viewtopic.php?f=59&t=165105

Abram, are you going to kitbash the Texas like I'm doing or scratchbuild it?

Paperlab, thanks for the link

David, I'm going to try scratch building it. I was able to find a 1/200 card model of the Oklahoma I'm going to use as a template to transfer to plastic to build Oklahoma. I was hoping something similar existed for Texas, but I haven't found one. That being said I'm not opposed to completely starting from scratch for other ships.
