Re: Excelsior Technical Manual - Revived!

I still have to scan all my hand-drawings, and then start retracing and filling in details. (My head hurts already.) But the tech section does provide a basic breakdown of the decks that should allow everyone to evaluate the approach I'm taking and formulate a basic mental picture as I do it. And obviously, since I will probably take a deck one down view in doing the actual drawings, I might be able to do the drawings as we evaluate each deck.

Then, there are other call-out drawings I plan to do - rooms, equipment, and so on - that feature with separate sub-articles under each deck, related to where each feature is found. My structural approach is similar to that of Shane Johnson in doing 'Mr. Scott's Guide.'
