Republic of Texas Flagship Zavala

Other than physically going to the State Archives where could I get a blueprint for this vessel?  I have found limited information on the internet but no details.
Thanks, Teal

Nothing at the moment but I'd let this request sit here and fish for awhile.

But in the meantime what an interesting ship she was.
Her big paddle wheels stubbornly drove her into the rampage.


and an interesting story...
"After I spent hundreds of hours researching the [amazonsearch]Texas Navy[/amazonsearch], standing all night in the rain caring for the Zavala in a muddy parking lot, and spending thousands of dollars for the actual project, the governor thought I was only some schmoe who built the model. Maybe I didn't build it, but I paid Fred several thousand dollars so NUMA could present it to the people of Texas."
