Hi to all Champs,

I am new to this forum and quite old to this hobby. Have made good models of indian warships and now planning to take a project of period ship. My aim is to build HMS victory but not now. :D

About a year back i made a sail ship albion and now looking for suggestion on selection of model. Which model should i pick? I will go with scratch building as there are very less chance to get kit in india or it is very difficult to import but i can buy parts easylly.

So please suggest me sourse from where i can get plans? My prefernce is any gun ship.

This is a source for many plans: http://www.taubmansonline.com/. Other good sources are to contact a museum and ask what plans they have. Most museums are very friendly and respond well to any questions sent by modelers.also see http://www.bestshipmodels.com/

Hello gajjark !

Welcome to Ships of Scale Forums. I am sure that plenty of Modelers here can help you. To increase your chance of other people responding, I will make a copy in "Scratch Build Logs" section to reference back to this page for you to obtain more feedback.

I will also try to help you find a source of plans.

Anyone here wish to help gajjark, please do !!!!

Thanks

Donnie
