Have you seen the book British Battlecrusiers by John Roberts - the second edition. It has fold out copies of the original plans for Invincible - some sections and most of the superstructure plans all drawn to a constant scale.

These are copies of the plans held in the maritime museum so are builders as fitted plans so not model plans but there is a wealth of detail on them.

Builders models of ships in cases tend to be solid blocks of wood rather than a hollow hull, so not a lot of good for anybody to make into a working model ,unless they were stripped and used as plugs for mounds.

my dad worked for sealink, when they changed hands he rescued all sorts from the skip - no models, but boxes and boxes of slides, oil paintings of the ships etc, photographs (and the original negatives) rolls of ship plans. he also managed to stop them taking down a huge painting in the board room that was worth hundreds of thousands (by a famous artist) and just dumping it (though his shed wasnt big enough for that one).
He is currently one of the leading sources for people writing books on sealink, for rare photos, and other trivia about the company, and other leading ferry companies in the uk.

As already suggested, calling the company might show if they are just sat in a store room. Although the company might not have a mechanism for selling off what is effectively office furniture, they may be willing to part with them if you offer to make a donation to a company sponsored charity or RNLI.
If no one at the company seems to know anything, contract their PR person, there may be a local news story angle for them to exploit.
