Rob Clarke, a former NABS member, just donated a large number of plans in scales from 1/144 to 1/50 for me to share with Ralph Coles. Included are the SMS Blucher, multiple Russian and Italian predreadnoughts (several too old for IRCWCC), French Democratie and Courbet, unknown Japanese interwar cruisers with the plans entirely in Japanese (might be the Natori Class with modernised bridge), very good plans for USS Detroit, HMS Lord Nelson and HMS Arethusa (for which Rob made a mold that was later acquired by Strike Models). There's a nice plan for HMS Belfast, with longitudinal lines but strangely no cross-sections at all. Lots of others to inventory. The Italian plans include cruiser Libia (1905), armored cruiser Pisa (1907) and predreadnoughts Regina Elena, Napoli and Roma (1905-1907). The last 2 are later ships on the same hull design but differ in appearance from the RE. On the past weekend Ralph was wondering if anyone would be intersted in the Blucher. We now have excellent plans for it. I would do some of the Italian ships or the Lord Nelson if there was enough interest.
