Comments: I am attempting to build a model of my former ship in 1/72nd scale (rather a large scale). I need to find a source of minimal blueprints of the vessel (Outboard profile, inboard profile, deck arrangements, and ribs, etc.) from which I can design the model plans. Except for visible installations, such as radars, gun directors, bow doors and ramps, and the like, piping, electrical, and fine interior details are not necessary. As this ship will be around 6' LOA, I may attempt to motorize and R/C it. Any leads would be appreciated. © 2005-2024 Site by Dropbears
