 Plan Sheet Descriptions

This 10 sheet set of plans depicts H.M.T. Olympic in her WWI configuration from 1917 to the Armistice.   This period is notable for her camouflage schemes which were called  “dazzle camouflage”.  The early scheme, designated 19A, was applied in in 1917 and remained until some time in 1918.  The later scheme, designated 19Ax was applied in 1918 and remained until the Armistice. Actual full size sheets are in 1/144 scale and are 3 ft. wide and 7-10 ft. long depending on the plan.  Images of the individual plan sheets are shown below.  Also included are enlarged areas of the plan sheets to show detail.

HMT Olympic 9 – Plan Ordering Code HMTOL9 – Price Per Sheet $35.00 USD
This plan sheet is a drawing of the shell plate expansion.  This drawing has never been found among the original drawings.  It was created using the Olympic framing plan and the Olympic shell plating plan.  The plan is of constant scale both vertically and horizontally.  All hull plates on the starboard side can be visualized in this expansion.  This plan will help the modeler in plating the hull.

HMT21

Special Note: It should be noted that the shape of individual plates cannot be derived directly from the shell plating expansion.  The shell plating expansion shows the shape of plates in the x and y dimensions.  On the ship there is also curvature in the z dimension.  The shell plating expansion is at best a general guide to the individual plate shape.  The modeler will need to develop the true shape of individual plates directly on the ship.  The advantages of this drawing are that it shows all the seams, butts and doubling in one drawing.  As an aid to the modeler, notations have been added which show how an individual plate or strake is overlapped or overlaps those adjacent to it.
