It's a hobby, not a job.
Have fun and enjoy the pastime of making model ships and boats!


Lookin for source for plans of USN ships
- by Nilsson On Aug 27, 2015 - 11:23 AM
Two years ago I decided to build a model of the USRC Mohawk and easily obtained plans from the Coast Guard archives. I drew the scale model plans and built the model. Now I would like to build a scale RC model of the U.S.S. Ward (DD-139) or any four piper, however, I can't find a source for drawings. I would appreciate any suggestions.

Hi fellow Shipmates. I'm new to the Forum and I'm not quite sure what to say at this time.
So I'll just say 'Ahoy!', and I'm glad to be part of the crew!

Title: Nameplate Carving
Contributed by: Landlubber7 on 07-30-2013
Summary: The purpose: The shape of the V will determine the depth of the cut you intend to make, say you determine you want a deep cut within the letter, you will draw a squatty or short V at both ends of the centered line. Likewise should you decide on a shallow cut, the length of the V will be elongated, where-as the centered line will be shortened,. The depth of the cut is up to your taste. Just remember whatever you decide on has to be replicated to all the letters and numbers and kept as uniform as you can make them.
