Battle class destroyer
« on: October 19, 2007, 07:35:08 pm »

Would anyone have any plans for one of these? I built one about 20 years ago from plans supplied in one of the model boat magazines of the time but the model is long gone as has (probably) the magazine as well.

Martin,
I had one of these a few years back, I will have a look and see if I can find the plans.
I think they have simplified hull drawings.

All destroyers varied a little, depending upon which yard built them.  if you want exact plans the best way is to decide which Battle Class you want to build then get the plans from the National Maritime Museum

Is that after you take out a second mortgage Ken.
At 25 a sheet they can get a tad expensive!!

Ken is right , of course but I'm simply after a representative vessel to give an impression. If I do it right, no one is going to be paying that much attention to it anyway... they'll all be too busy looking at the BIG "xxxxx"!
