QuoteGreetings Eric, My name is Steven Leclair and am the archivist for the National Research Council, I was passed your query regarding the Habbakuk .Lorne Gold's book is by far the best reference you could use for the model. Unfortunately, once the project was cut, it seems that much of the material was lost or destroyed as it was considered to be a top secret project.While we do not have blue prints or schematics, the one's in Gold's publication are by far the best examples I have so far seen from my understanding, there never would be a "final design" since the construction at Lake Louise was the experimental stage, never to be finished. The NRC Habbakuk collection consists of photos of the work being done, experiments on pykrete, various bits of data and correspondence. There really is nothing showing a final model or photograph but I have included a photo of the closest they came to completion. Please do feel free to contact me directly for any questions or concerns.Have a great day! Steven
