You should check the thread as this was posted previously by blackkite, you can see it even on this page!

Also it is a nice table but it still misses a large amount of designs.
I have data about these:
A-140,
A,A1,A2
B,B1,B2
C,
D,
F1,F3,F4,F5,F6 (Yamato)
G0,G1,G2,G3,G4,G5
I,
J0,J1,J2,J3,
K1,K2,K3,K4

Note for the last 3 (Ezaki and Fukuda) there were no original drawings or sketches survived so far, only data so I've used my imagination and knowledge to draw them.


And the first two of Yamato's preliminaries:

A-140:
