I have yet to see anything in PM that I would call correct; there is nothing in Buxton and only a few GAs in Robert's British Warships of the second world war; detailed in the original builders plans/ (which is a very nice volume to have regardless).

I saved a review of the book on HMS Roberts (did not save the source) and the conclusion was "All in all, very sloppy and badly inaccurate sets of plans. One can always expect some errors in any published work but the number in this case is inexcusable. "

I agree with the assessment above, after having purchased the Profile Morski plan set for my build of the Akitsushima. The PM plans were wildly inaccurate and best set aside if you have misfortune to have spent your money on a set. Never again!

I am working on a 1/96 scale plug of HMS ROBERTS. I am only interested in the hull shape. A good builder can move things or change itiem's using photos but the hull is another story . I have Ian Buxton's Big Gun Monitors . Years ago I asked this guestion and someone posted coments about the hull lines but I didn't write it down.
