Plans available

Measurements on plans are given in full size increments to aid modelers building in different scales. In other words, if the prototype has a 50' hull it will show 50' on the plans. Since the offering of plans is a hobby of mine and not a full time business, plans are printed on 8.5" x 11" and 8.5" x 14" paper and are marked with a match up line for drawings larger than printable area whereas the paper can be cut and taped together to make a complete set of plans. Plans are 1/8"=1' unless otherwise noted.
