Tony, are you interested in the Autocad file (or JPEGs) that I am making by copying the plans on your site?

Can you tell me more about them? Are you sampling the lines?
How many files do you have, and how large are they?

Tony, the files are not large at all; however at the moment I only have one that is partially completed. I've been working on it over lunch at work.

The set of plans I almost have finished are for the Austro-Hungarian monitor. In Friedrich Prasky's Donaumoniteren Osterreich-Ungarns von 1872 bis zur Gegenwart are plans for the later version; I am using these and the many photos of boats that were actually built to create a full set of plans suitable for modeling.

Sorry to have been unresponsive. Can you post some images or mail them to me (as tone at this site's domain)?

I'll see what I can do about exporting to a format you can use.

Next on my list is probably going to be Friedrich der Grosse.

Can I have a copy to have a look?

When I do 3d modeling, one problem always show up. The scanned images are not well aligned across different views. A lot of times, I have to guess which one is more accurate than the other. The manual tracing work actually take more time than 3d modeling. So as you are working on the 2d aspect, it would be a great plus to anyone who want to go further to do 3d.

In the case of the monitor, I have found a further source, the aforementioned book, that gives a general idea for stations. I am using that as a base point as the drawings in the book are for the later version.

This is rather slow as I am also working on a set of drawings for the Maritime Museum's next project, a USLSS surf boat.
