Polish Ship Modeling Magazine Modelarstwo issue number 64 is out. This one features plans for the Polish patrol boat OP-204 (German R-boat), drawn in 1/72 scale on a large fold out sheet. Inside are plans for Austrian Hungarian Ironclad ship from 1895 SMS Tegetthoff in 1/400 scale.

In 3D ship equipment section Japanese twin 152 mm turrets for the Agano class cruisers are nicely rendered from a multitude of angles. Color profiles of the  American Casablanca-class escort carrier feature USS Savo Island CVE-78, USS Petrof Bay CVE-80, and USS Shipley Bay CVE-85. 

An article on the USS Iowa features photos, line drawings of a 1945 and 84 Iowa, and a cool 44 color profile.
