[WWI] No interest in the new Dreadnought?

The book, 'The Battleship Dreadnought - Anatomy of the Ship' has what you seek.
I have it but am away from home and so cannot access the rigging diagrams.  

I have the kit on pre-order and so haven't seen it yet.  What configuration is it ?  Off top of my head, I think there is the original, a pre-war refit, then a war-time refit (or two).  That makes a difference in rigging.

I got my Dreadnought today. Looks very nice, but there are a few things.

There's a few small sinkmarks that might be quite irritating to fill, since they are close to the hull detail.
And there's no rigging diagram. I hate this, and Zvezda isn't exactly alone on doing this. Why can't they put together something basic at least? I have no idea what the cables, threads and antennas do or where they go. I'm interested in ships because how they look as models, not on how the original worked.

      I jump on the keys like Archie the cockroach.

       Not really. Being 1/350 it takes the whole crew to drop a key. This message took 30 minutes to type.

      Thanks, Andy...

     That's my scale.

    Really? You must be quite small. How do you manage to reach the keyboard...?? ;-)
