    I think the info is fairly accurate, Paul. Wonder how they missed the Essex ?

    Charles,

    The material is dated January 9, 1941, 11 months prior to Pearl Harbor, too early for the Essex Class.

    Added yet another one above. This one covers Japanese aircraft and there spec's. Last page is kinda interesting. Gives the number of aircraft carrying capacity of aircraft carriers and some sea plane carriers ships.

    Your welcome, I kinda have a fondness for these old articles too. Kinda neat to see what they new at the time. Some of them can be pretty well detailed considering they where made during a time of war.
