Hi,

  I am having a bit of trouble finding a set of plans for a 63' whaleback, I did find some on a CD in Canada but they have 'disappeared'! I have found most other boats but not the one I am looking for.

Any ideas where to look?

     Cheers Clive...

Hi Clive!

There are a set of plans for a BPBco Type 2, 63ft Whaleback plans available for "Model Boats" magazine for the RAF A/SR and the RN MA/SB in 1:24th scale

I have a plan for the RN 63ft MGB!

You can find the Telephone number on the inside of the cover for the Plans dept.


If you have any trouble, please contact me direct through my website. www.hslmouldings.co.uk


regards

Chris

By John Pritchard, I thought this was available through Nexus Plans Service but now I can't find them anywhere.

Saw this on eBay, no idea where to get them though.

If hslmouldings' idea draws a blank, try asking John Lambert through his website; if he doesn't know no-one will!

Hi guys

Have read recent discusion regarding Whaleback hul plans. May be able to help. Just developed a set of "faired" hull drawings and about to construct a 1/12 scale hull to prove fairing. If result is OK then I shall be able to provide comparable information to any scale required. Superstructure details are another matter as variants occurred.

regards

Douglas

Hi Douglas,

  I got a set of plans off Chris (HSL) and am in the middle of trying to build what should end up looking like a 63' MASB (1/12)

At some point soon I will post some photos so people who have not built a model can say "I can do better than that!" maybe i'll inspire someone to try.

well, you've got to have a go, and considering all I am useing is a battery drill, jigsaw and hacksaw I dont recon it is too bad! when I am one stage further i'll get a photo posted.

 all the best, Clive...

Try searching on eBay for veneer timber. I would imagine it would be good for authentic looking planking on a solid hull.

At my model shop you can get 0.4mm  and 0.8mm plywood! it is about 7 for 2-3 square foot. I suppose you would cut it with scissors or a guillotine? I've not got to that stage yet..
