Another way to measure a neck radius is to use multi fingered radii gage. It looks a lot like a comb with small fingers that slide to fit any profile. You push the gage against the neck from the back, then lay the gage on a piece of paper. Trace the curve of the fingers with a pencil. Then take a bow compass and strike a couple of light pencil radius's until your compass fits the general curve of the gage. when you match up the two lines, measure the compass from pivot point to pencil tip on a ruler and read the ruler. Fairly simple, do the math.
