Battelle Memorial Institute did a statistical study of Project
Blue Book's case files which among other things attempted to
develop a "model" of classes of UFO shapes. This became the Blue
Book Special Report 14 released in October 1955.

In reality Battelle was trying to debunk UFO's as merely
disparate random misperceptions which would of course result in
no consistent pattern. And they falsely insinuated that all they
could do was come up with 12 different UFO shapes, when even
they admitted there were several similar shapes that could be
grouped together out of the 12. Rather than repeat their 4 shape
categories which are somewhat erroneous, let me just list the
most obvious shape correlations:

Aircraft-type shape (Cases 2 and 3)
Bulbous rocket shape (Cases 4 and 5)
Helmet or hat-shaped saucer (Cases 6 and 8)
