    I am just wondering the quality of the plans from Profile Morskie before I purchase some.
    Thanks, jason

    They are good, but will need to be resized to get the correct scale. Some people have had problems with plans not arriving but that is usually solved by a few emails.

    they are fairly good however some of the hull sections may not be quite correct or line up quite right with the other views. amply good enough for our purposes

    I haven't built from them yet, but the only complaint I have about the KGV plans is that the propeller shaft distance from the centerline is not shown.

    They also have 1/144 scale plans in either paper for some or .pdf for the rest. Very good plans for our ships, might not be perfect but they do have lots of stuff shown.

    I have had to open a paypal dispute with them to get them to bother sending them to me. They are slow and unresponsive in general. For their plans anymore i just bet on 2 weeks and then open paypal dispute. then they will get off their collecive rear end and send the plans.

    I think the turn around is usually about a week now.

    Oh if you're getting it by snail mail and not email, it'll take about a month maybe a little more (i've only gotten one thing via snail mail).

    Oh, you bought paper? Yeah, that will take a skosh longer. it is kinda sad though, when I first started buying plans from them, paper came in 2-3 weeks, and pdf was within 2-4 days....

    Ahh... been a week for me... so I guess I will just wait.

    I did download the PDF for the Flower class destoyer... but I already know that smaller boats are basically too tough to build.

    I bought a paper plan for HMS Frobisher from them this spring (paying for delivery) but got a pdf, which I didn't want and couldn't print in 1/144 scale. I was told a paper plan was mailed but it did not arrive after the time for a Paypal dispute had expired. However, I eventually got the second set of plans they mailed. Very nice work as always.
    They have a sale on so I think I'll order 1/144 paper plans for the Java Class, which will be the next hull plug I build after the Frobisher Class. Might have a go at the Krasni Kavkaz 2.5 unit Soviet CA too, to go along with my Krasni Krim hull, which should be in production soon by Strike Models.

    I'm starting to think that we should catalog which plans are good and which have errors from them. The Littorio has under the waterline errors on the sections / inconsistencies but nothing major. The Duca plans have one major error on hull section (just ignore the whole section, it is obvious what it should be anyways) and use the rest.

    I read someplace that the funnel shape on the Morskie Barham plans was a little off. Though for us, it wouldn't matter.
