    no

    but in this case, the Bolster class was a modified Diver class which was based off the Navajo - from what I saw they switched to twin props, flattened the hull bottom and lowered the main deck. So if you take these plans, stare at some photos of what you want, and spend some time fiddling, you can probably get something pretty close to what you want.

    My wife had recently passed a way and my computer is in storage at the moment, i had the front to the mid half of the ship worked out. The back half I had just started to work on. I will get it finished when i get my computer back out of storage.

    AT-64 - 65 have the same high pointy aft while AT-66 and all the later ships of the class have a low square aft section. I am going to design the ship as the early ship design. I am debating on having both aft sections to let the builder choose.

    A few days ago I started in Photoshop Taking Screen captures of the model to build a PDF. Resizing and measurements are made easy in my opinion. There really isn't a really good way to pull things out of Delftship, only real way I think it would work is if I used the Paperkoura program that takes a 3D model and breakes it down for a paper model to be built.
