Vintage shipplans from Popular Science magazine and Popular Mechanics magazine

Ok, as a reply in a side discussion in the My 1:1200 IJN Tone & Mogami class heavy cruisers craft by Lou Coatney about books/publications vintage sphip plans, I'd like to post some ship plans from the 1920's, 1930's and 1940 and perhaps 1950's published in the Popular Sciense (PS) magazine and Popular Mechanics (PM) magazine. A large part of both magazines have been digitized by Google a few years ago, and is available for you to read on Google Books.
I could recommend you'd browse the collection yourself for plans if interested, because it wasn't just shipping model plans, but you'd could build your own model aircraft and model cars

So in this thread I'll post some ship plans I collected myself, but this is just a small part of available ship plans, as I'm not interested in sailing vessels I did not download them, but sailing vessels are an important part of the published plans....There is a Santa Maria and there is a HMS Bounty
Again my advise is to browse the collection yourself

I'll start with the smallest scales

1-1200 CV-5 USS Yorktown, published in april 1939 in PS

1-1200 CL-41 USS Philadelphia, published in february 1939 in PS

1-1200 Pre-WW2 US Destroyers and Submarine, published in june 1939 in PS

Thanks for the heads up on Google Books. I misplaced a photocopy that the publisher sent me of the USS Flasher submarine plans from the Popular Mechanics January 1967 issue. I see now that it is now available on Google Books.

Playing in Google found there have been several USS Winslow, starting with Torpedo Boat 5 in 1897; DD-53 in 1915; DD-359 of 1937, which would be this one.
