The latest is USS Parche. Lots of back-and-forth, lots of opinions and hints.I think that this is as close as you'll find anywhere unclassified.

Still drawing in MS Paint - have to learn a proper tool some time.

Questions and corrections welcome. :)

Damn impressive. That it was done with MS Paint makes it doubly so.

Very impressive, hadn't realised you were using Paint for your cutaway drawings.

You know there are much better painting programs out there for free, right?

Try paint.net - basically a freebie version of photoshop - but a lot shallower learning curve...

Paint.NET is very nice, and is often profiled as a showcase for c# programming.

But apparently the next Window 10 update in 2017 will include a new overhauled MSpaint with new capabilities...

Another MS Paint creation. SEALION semi-sub. Got the scale a bit wrong but not bad by eye I hope.

Big sub-compare illustration using profiles from the new book. If resolution of attachment appears too low then go to http://www.hisutton.com/SSNs.html for original

I have been remiss in not saying what a brilliant site yours is. Brilliant in fact. Thanks.
