Hi Larry,
The footy-scow Alma is again one of mine, Mark wrote the very nice article for MMI, Dodgy-Geezer has the drawings of the US Alma as a download on his web-site - http://eezebilt.hobby-site.com/scow.html

If you want the NZ Alma I have drawings here for that one. The hull bow shape and sail plan is different than the US one.
PM me with what you want
cheers

Hi Larry,
Black Rose looking very nice. Haven't done any more on mine for the past month, what with  brief holiday in Australia between Christmas/New Year, work and other commitments.
Both the Alma's are not scale models, but rather look alike from a distance and altered to fit the footy rules, but hopefully retaining the schooner-scow presence.
If you wanted scale drawings of a schooner-scow then MMI has the 'Marjorie Campbell' which is based on one of the still existing NZ scows.
The USA Alma drawings available for free download from 'Dodgy-Geezers' web site are full size on A3 sheets, as are the as yet incomplete set for the NZ Alma. Don't know how they would go if scaled up.
cheers

Hi Larry,
The USA Alma drawings you downloaded from 'DG's" site should be a set of 9 drawings. (all A3 size)
The NZ Alma drawings are (or will be) a similar set. The fittings etc are the same, just the hull and sail plan are different.
As soon as I can complete the NZ Alma set I will send to you, I still have your email address.
Cheers
