    This is my reply from the shipyard that built the last two Star Ferries:

    Attn : Mr. Peter J. Glor

    RE : Star Ferry Lines Plan

    Acknowledged your email and noted your strong interest in "Star Ferry"; particular the two new ferries built by our company; Wang Tak; in 1988 and 1989. Now these two ladies are over 26 years young; versus the other Star Ferries of 1950 vintage.

    Sorry to say; with economical pressure; the Golden Star had been sold and converted into a "house boat" moored at Tai Tam; and the World Star had been laid up since 2012.

    Regarding the lines plan; this document is "confidential" and owned by the "Star Ferry Company"; with the newbuilding contract; Wang Tak as builder had committed to protect all design documents and not to release to third party. The only means would be to obtain the lines plan directly from the "Star Ferry Company". Sorry that we cannot help on this matter.

    Regards,
    Feat Szeto

    This is Miki Kwokโ€™s reply to my inquiry about his model. I have included the drawing he sent with the photos attached to my previous reply.

    Dear Mr, Pete. J. Glor

    Thank you for your e-mail regarding our project Hong Kong Star Ferry, in fact we are down load the official drawing from Wang Tak Engineering & Shipbuilding co, ltd of star ferry with A4 size. This Star Ferry is scratch build.

    1. We start working out to 1/48 scale, this is base on the passenger on board the ferry, we like the model with more real.

    2. We use the foam to cut to ship sharp and sand down according to the plan, mean time take out some foam for motor and battery ballast weight, upon complete, we have to add 5 lbs of lead to keep the ship at water line.

    3. Upper and lower deck construct with Styrene sheet, also the passenger branch made by Styrene stick, we use a piece of
    wood to made a jack for standard size of each difference area as per the ship's plan.

    4. Life bouy all round the ferry and the navigation lights we use the Billing boat parts.

    5. Interior lighting we use the model train station light for upper and lower deck.

    6. Propulsion we use brushless motor and ESC one set in each end, since we do not need reverse,

    7. Original ferry require 4 blade propeller, but we only can found 3 blade with this size, therefore we use 3 blade instead

    8. Both end with rudder, one servo each end, and both rudder we made with brass sheet to cut as per plan.

    I hope the above may answer your questions, in the next few days, I try to take some picture and forward to you, which may help to understand what we did.

    Furthermore the ARK model Hong Kong Yamati ferry model I have one on hand, which require a lot of work to finish, in fact what you buy from ARK only a ferry hull and the mod of upper structure fiberglass piece, and a plan with propeller and shaft.

    In case you need more information, please feel free e-mail me, I am delightful to send you information with my capacity.

    Best regards
    Mickey Kwok

    Over the years since I first rode the Star Ferries in 1965, I have wanted to build a model of one. There is no actual construction plan that I have ever found. However, I have found a number of drawings, and pictures, which I will attach.

    I also corresponded with a modeler, who ran a Star Ferry model at a Northwest model ship meet a number of years ago. He built his hull from foam with open passages for his radio and batteries, and one motor for each prop. I also have some interior photos.
