In summary, a notch below the Anatomy of the Dreadnought, but a super effort given the lack of source materials.
The scale of this ship, and the detail in this book is nothing but intimidating. This is almost twice the size of the great US battleships, and to even contemplate building a model, do not even waste your money unless you had this works, and even then, when you see the amount of diagrams in this book, it will either put you off as you may not think you can do it justice, or you will spend at least a year trying to get it close to detail.
A top read!
This book illustrates the compartments and inner spaces well. If you are building from scratch it would be ideal. Even has a drawing of the ship as it presently lies wrecked on the seabottom. I only wish it had some underwater photos from the Japanese naval expedition to this site.
This is an excellent work for anyone interested in this historic ship and a particularly good reference for the modeling community.
