    Ah yes, I recall that thread now. It was when Colin first got the model. I was gathering info for him. Well now I have the model as his recent flood and need to sort all his stuff out has meant he will never do it, so now I have that responsibility. I have found a source of pictures and I think they'll have to do. I've spent too much recently on model airyplanes and RC gear!
    Mind you, my dear bride is talking about getting a wee doggy chum for our old Archie dog, so that might free a bit of reciprocal spending

    Hi Folks,
    That plan is 1:96 31" which would make scaling up relatively easy! BUT it's very limited (possibly the same as the S Models one?)
    "Waverley: The last paddle-steamer on the Clyde, built in 1947 and in use in 1993. Scale 1:96, length 31in (787mm), hull beam 3.75in (96mm). Lines and external details only."

    If you search 'Waverley' on the CMB site it produces two more plans, both with much more detail and info apparently.

    Thought this query sounded familiar Martin (W)-

    Some links for lots of original pics in the threadπŸ˜‰
    Scroll down to near the start.

    A guy called davidhgreatbatch has one in his Harbour on this site.

    I went to Cornwall models on the web and in the search box I typed in C55.

    Martin.
    If it looks right it probably is.

    Nah, that plan is limited, DG and a bit small. I have not been impressed with the plans they do. I had a Hornet Moth plan and it was utter crap that I had to try redrawing, until I gave up and threw it away. 12 quid in the bin.
    I think I can get pictures enough. I just wondered if there was just one source of info. Paddleducks I'd completely forgotten about. Thanks for the links.

    Would you pay for a plan? https://www.sarikhobbies.com/product/waverley-paddle-ship-c5...

    and Paddleducks is the place to go for paddle steamer info: http://www.paddleducks.co.uk/smf/index.php?topic=2179.0

    Hi all, in the unlikely event that I might attempt to complete the large model of Waverley I've been given, is there a publication/article/thread I could find that goes into what the deck looks like, fittings, finishes, rigging, etc.? And an even longer shot... diagonal paddle engines and steam plant for it?

    Cheers,
    Martin
