I have a copy of 'LOFTING' by Allan H. Vaitses. This would seem to be a concise bible on the subject; it may be worth hunting a copy down.

Dave, thanks for the downloads.
If I recall correctly, the series was never completed. I could be wrong.
No doubt you'll find out for us.

The piece on Understanding Ships' Draughts was split into six articles in issues 46, 48, 50, 52, 54 & 58.

David White also wrote a series of nine articles on Traditional Wooden Shipbuilding in issues 47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, 61 & 63.

i have a Model shipwright index but it only covers up to issue 44 but i will research this
