Hi All,

I have an incomplete set of drawings for a 41.6'  BPB wide beam Seaplane tender that were drawn by John Pritchard.

I need to order a new set of A0 drawings but cannot find where to order them.  The model shops online only do A3 which isn't good enough for a 1:1 scale  model (with my eyesight anyway).

I've ordered the A3 set as a backup but does anyone know where I can but a set of A0 ones?

Thanks
Don

Hi there Don, one good idea - why not go to a printers - they could enlarge the A3 ones for you to the size you require.  Worth a try.

Hello Donald,

Thanks for your kind offer.  I've almost completed my first  bilge stringer (1 of 6). I hope to start planking her sides in May when we get  more settled weather.

I've put a few photos of her "as is"  at www.rania.co.uk/ST365-2 

I've bought  a 4 page set of A0 model plans by John Prichart.   They're excellent but lacking in the detail I need for some restoration work, especially the helm & cabin.

I'll be glad to pay for the copying and postage for anything on the 41'6" BPB seaplane tender.

Regards

Don
