Original text on model:
"Study Model C. Class R
scale 3/4 x 15/16. Oct 26, 1920" (Source: Original handwritten annotation on model. Undated.)
"Note that the collection of the Herreshoff Marine Museum contains a plan 'Comparison of Model B. Feb. 1925 and Game Cock' (acc. no. 204.000.100112, loc. MRDT 1/2). This suggests that NGH's R-boat studies from 1920 had an influence on the design of #932s Gamecock." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. April 30, 2014.)
"See R Class." (Source: Curator Herreshoff Marine Museum, 2004.)
"Compare models 1107 and 1108. They are of very different size and shape but both supposed to be at the same scale for an R-boat. Is this possible or likely?" (Source: van der Linde, Claas. 2008.)
