    So, after the successful V-106 plug, and the selling of one to Ananchronus, I was wondering if anybody else would be interested in me building another destroyer plug? I have plans for the following destroyer: Fletcher class, Orfey class, Tashkent class, and if somebody could supply some Novik destroyer plans, I could do that one too. If you want a V-106 hull, I still have the plug; so let me know.
    So, if I get enough interest I could build one. I'm not to sure about price yet. Give me a good affer and I'll see what I can do. :)

    How about SMS V-99 or HMS Swift?
    Or perhaps a Clemson?

    Ok, great suggestions. I have Tribal plans that need some cleaning up in order to use. I also have some Clemson plans, but they are not quite complete, but might work for this.
    I don't have plans for either the V- 99 or the Swift, Anachronus. If you could supply some, that would be great.
    I guess that you guys are going to have to decide which ship for me to build, eh? Also, if I made a plug, would you guys buy a hull? It really wouldn't be worth my while to build a plug if no one would buy a hull. :)

    I think they are some of the best looking RN destroyers. (after the Swift)

    Oh, wow, thanks for those plans, Anachronus! Working on getting them all onto my computer. :) BTW, are any of them copyrighted?
    If that is what you guys want, then the Tribal will be my next plug build.
    Now, the questions is, will you buy one when I make it??? :)

    Probably. Or rather yes.

    Ordinarily, I'd be yelling YES!, but with Ersatz Hannover being built, I need no more hulls for the foreseeable future.

    Ok then, it's decided. :D I don't know when I'll get started building it. Probably when I get a scroll saw working.
    @Tugboat, I don't plan on ever selling the plug, so it you ever want one, let me know. ;)

    Plans have been cleaned up, and half of them printed. Maybe I'll start working on cutting out the ribs with a hand saw. :( :)

    Well, Nikki, I'm going to be building the Tribal for this run. Keep a look out for when I do another plug run. I might build a Tashkent. :) Actually, my plans are to have most of the popular destroyers available and start a part-time business. :)

    are you making a mold with your plug and fabricating hulls within the mold, or just laying up a hull on top of the plug?

    Laying up hulls on top of a plug. Crude but reasonably effective for battling purposes. Less pricey, certainly.

    ok, this may sound like a stupid question, But how do you make the Hulls From the Plugs, That was a question that my mom and my sister asked me that?

    Nikki, the plug is essentially a filled hull, slightly smaller than the final hull will be. You lay up fiberglass on to the outside of your sealed / greased / non stick-sprayed plug. Once that cures, you carefully remove it from your plug if you intend to reuse the plug, or destroy the plug if you dont intend to. Then you add fiberglass inside/out to get get the appropriate thickness and strength.
