    Not sure on VDT, I'll look after I get some more work done in the shop. Computer nerding is usually my night time thing - I don't like to work too late in the shop cause the boogers will come and get me when it's dark out!

    Depends on the list. [:D]

    I'm up for just about any WWII IJN ship. I'm also looking for decent modernized plans of Italian Cavour class BBs and/or the Italian Duilio class BBs. And I'm looking for decent plans for the Italian Capitani Romani class light cruisers and the Deutschland class pocket BBs.

    Many thanks!

    Carl

    The Deutschlands I have. In spades. If you want to build one with about 120 frames, I got them :)

    I'm goin to make an effort to get 1)A list of plans done, and 2)Get some plans done.

    Tugboat,
    the Dunkerque profile plan pic says nothing to be displayed when I try to view it. Didn't know if you knew about that or not, I wont be needing it right away. It would be my 3rd ship maybe 4th and I have yet to start on the first. so no hurry. thanks for the plans!!!!

    You need HMS Erin? This one? Visit this site Those are the frames from the plans (drawn without the crowning in the deck). They are on close to 2 1/8" centers, as I recall. The original builders plans are available from the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. The Goff plans had a couple of errors, but, between those and these frames, you would be pretty good to go, methinks.

    Cheers,

    Wreno

    Tug,

    Meant to ask but did you run across the Russian CP Zhemchug in that plans site of yours? I've always thought that was a fine looking ship.

    Zhemchug was built around the turn of the century,

    She and her sister ship were involved in the Russo-Japanese War.

    I found drawings of the VDT, but no hull lines or frames, sorry.

    On the plus side, I found a bunch of German WWI cruisers.... anybody heard of one called Emden? ;)

    She'd be a temptress to build just for how she'd look on the pond..
