What use is the USNI?

Speaking of USNI, I am not going to rant about the post-Rainbow editor or some of the directions the magazine has taken - no, I am going to be selfish. I have been thinking of another project that I don't have time for, to be specific - a fully working RC model (real cannons et al) of the CSS Virginia to scale, made from scratch by me. Hard to find the right plans, anywhere outside Richmond it seems.

Anyway, dig around until I found a recommendation for a book published by USNI, Ironclad Down: USS Merrimack-CSS Virginia from Design to Destruction. USNI member price, $31.50. price, $29.70.
