The Blandford Cross Section Group Build (BCSGB)
before requesting digital download @dbdriskell , please read and accept the Terms below.
The Blandford project sole purpose is ONLY for educational purposes and is not meant to be an endeavor on building a perfectly scaled model, however, it you wish to divulge in that, it is solely up to you to do the proper research and your own workbench. The sole purpose of the (BCSGB) is aimed towards the beginner in mind, but seasoned modelers are welcome too.

The Blandford was chosen as a base example of a "typical" cross section for educational and experimentation purposes. The main purpose is to teach model ship builders the techniques and basic practices of building admiralty style frames, decking, etc.

However, there are straightforward policies that must be adhered to and a member of the (BCSGB) is running a risk of not participating.
The purpose of these rules are not to discourage anyone, but it is to protect your interest and the interest of Ships of Scale.
