john lambert plans
« on: May 22, 2015, 03:14:03 pm »

Hi anyone,


This is my first post. I want to scratchbuild a flower class corvette, and have ordered, some time ago, full plans from Mr Lambert. However,
he phoned me a couple of weeks ago to say he was not well, and couldn't say when he could get them to me. My further attempts to contact him have been fruitless; my cheque has not been cashed. Does anyone know what the situation is? I can't see any other plans anywhere and for such a popular subject, there seems to be a dearth of information. Help!

In addition to the plans you could look for Conway's "Anatomy of a Ship - HMS Agassiz"  You'll probably get a copy off fleabay. It's an invaluable requirement for the corvette builder.

2)three modifieds and 3)  HMS Alisma.
Hope that helps.

I heard that he is battling the 'C'

Is it possible that they are still available through the likes of Cornwall Model Boats
