If you're new to model boat building from scratch or just want something easy, try this one. Model ship plan of the first Confederate ironclad AKA Merrimack (or sometimes incorrectly Merrimac).
The plans show no model construction, but is rather a representation of the real ship as she would have appeared just before the battle at Hampton Roads.
Here is a plan set for building the protected cruiser USS Olympia of Spanish-American War fame.
They fall into two categories:CAD generated and computer loftedThe CAD generated plans are of exceptional quality, simply because they have never been printed, scanned or folded. This has been a real heartwarming project for me to watch my 12 year old son work on this with me.
It shares a similar easy-to-build hull construction as the PT boat, but is actually even easier to build. I'm about 90% complete and look forward to 'ice-out' so that I can see how well she performs.I have scratch built many airplanes but always lacked the knowledge to build a boat.


I was most impressed with the quality of reproduction and it looks like the size would be perfect for an RC model.Syd K.
They are beautifully done, the best I've ever seen of an ironclad and have inspired me to build a model of her.Matt B. To my knowledge, nobody else offers this service.Scanned and electronically cleaned upThe down-side with CAD generated plans is that, for a one-man-show, it takes a long time to generate each one of them.

I've concluded that it would benefit more people to simply offer scanned plans of these historic ships.These plans are still excellent quality, and of high resolution. As the originals are over 100 years old, many hours have been spent cleaning them up to a my own high standardAll plans are in pdf format.
For prospective buyers outside the USA: Make sure you have a printer who can handle the paper size!!They are based on the RC PT boat that I was building, inspired by the old Lindberg kit I had as a teenager.
I use jZip because it's free and reliable.Changing the scale when printing out is tricky with pdf files.


Follow the link for more tips on printing pdf's further down on this page.At one point I offered the CAD generated plans in several different scales, all individually. It drove me crazy trying to keep track of it all, and try and figure some sort of price structure.
I gave up and decided to offer all different scales of the same subject in a single download. It has worked out well.When you buy these model boat plans you receive a zip file containing multiple drawings at different scales.
