Two sets of Booklets of General Plans have been located and are available for view & Download. The top set is the 1941 BOGP and largely represents Arizona as she was lost (it lacks the radar antenna pedestal and platform installed at Pearl Harbor later in the year for example). The lower set appears to be a 1924 copy that was later edited to show changes made during Arizona's 1929-31 modernization.

1924 Booklet of General Plans
This set of plans is dated 1924 but lists changes dated 1927 and has changes implemented in 1929 drawn into the plans. It is a good source of information of changes given the ghosted older details.
