    I know George Goff sells a set in 1:144. He's listed in the "all Known Vendors" section.

    She should be a passable ship depending on your format. I am assuming that you are running fast gun. Charley at Battler's Connection sells a hull for her, which I think comes with plans. I don't think she'd be a world beater, but she couldn't be worse then my Courageous! The most important thing is to build a boat you like, in my opinion.

    There was a Profile Morskie for the Caio Duilio that was pretty good. You'll have to search the web for it though - it isn't listed at either WhiteEnsignModels.com or PacificFront.com which used to have it. You can also check Shipcamouflage.com.


    There are some plans listed at Taubmansonline.com. They are ANB plans which are usually pretty good, although it's not clear if they are for the WWI or WWII version.
