I showed already in several locations here in our forum the very interesting web-page of the Royal Museums Greenwich or the National Maritim Museum

Here you can see the web-page with a research for the HMS Africa, launched in 1761 - Here contemporary drawings and plans, but also artefacts, paintings etc. are shown

Scale: 1:48. Plan showing the body plans, sheer lines, and longitudinal half-breadth for 'Africa' (1761), 'Asia' (1764), 'Essex' (1760), all 64-gun Third Rate, two-deckers. Note alterations made to the quarterdeck.



Now you can find also 3.580 drawings listed at wikipedia, maybe some of you can find here a wanted drawing easier - or you click through......

in Collections of the Royal Museums Greenwich

Here you can download the drawing in much higher resolution - I downloaded HMS Africa with 100 MB - Much too big for a forum - but good to know when you want to see a drawing in HIGH RESOLUTION !!!
