    That is a very nicely detailed model Norm.
    Very well done indeed.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    No problem In fact there are a number of pages that are not really needed. I have profile and plan together and on the wall by the bench ready to go. Attached Rainbow virtually finished. She needs a searchlight and a locker on the bridge, and some lifebelts here and there. No carley floats back then.

    Glad you like 'em NormπŸ‘πŸ˜Š
    Yeah! It's a bit-of-a pain in the rear end getting all the sheets lined up
    Did the same for my HMS Manxman plan.πŸ€”
    One way to reduce the effort, if you have an A3 printer, is to copy the pages into a graphics / CAD program and join them in pairs. Then print on A3.
    Have fun!
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Yes, when I get the necessary piece of basswood. Still have a few things to do on Rainbow.

    Hi Norm,
    I remember Rainbow looking absolutely magnificent!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Re Plans: I'll PM you the 1:200 version as pdf.
    So check your Messages box at the top of the page.
    It's the best detailed and easiest to scale to 1:182.
    Cheers, Doug😎

    1/182 1/16" to the foot.
    Yes, been a while. Rainbow took a while, and I'm not happy with her. Rigging was a nightmare. Think I'm getting old!
    The drawings you have. I assume they are drawn by someone reputable or you wouldn't have them. I have usually got builders drawings from Greenwich, but they whacked their prices way up a few years ago to then about sixty quid a sheet. They haven't answered my current query yet but I'd lay money on them being up again.
    What price your drawings, and how transmitted?

    Hi Norm,
    Long time no hear! How's things shipmate?
    Ref HMS AJAX:
    What scale were you thinking of?
    I have pdf plans in 1:200 and a combi set 1:350 / 1:700.
    You can always adjust the scale if you wishπŸ‘
    Cheers, Doug 😎
