The French plans link has been dead for a while. Too bad because they were some awesome plans. I downloaded most, if not all of them before they went off line - almost 5 GB worth.

You might be able to find them via the Wayback Machine (http://www.archive.org/web/web.php)

Try this link:

Completely dead,.. at least you managed to get them before they went down. I dl'd a bunch of russian ships a few years back but only 1 set of drawings was good enough to build from.

Do you build 3D, physical, or both?

My hands aren't steady enough for physical models, though I would love to build one.

I work strictly in virtual models.

Well I think my hands are still up to it,.. but the eyes,... well magnifying glasses are a good thing. I've been wanting to do this 40 years. I'm hoping now is the time.

Have you modeled any pre dreadnoughts?

I have thought about modeling the early American BB's such as the Indiana, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

I love the lines of the french ships with their tumblehome. Do the drawings have good detail of externals, guns, boats, plating schedule etc?

The French plans are some of the best prints I've seen. Here's a few examples. I had to reduce them heavily in order to keep it manageable. The quality of these are crap compared to the original TIFF images.

I apologize for the size!

Wow!! the fullsize must be literally works of art! What an amazing find. Are there sub drawings,.. like turret construction, or searchlights in great detail?

Some of the detail is insane - winches, steering gears, conning tower structures, plating and armor, interior structure, screw pitch detail...and the list goes on and on. There are even detailed drawings of engine telegraph transmitters! Over 4GB worth of TIFF images (more than 5000 of them).

I'd love for someone to offer up web space for storage - I'd be more than happy to burn them to DVD and mail them to whomever can make them available online (hint, hint tone).

I knew I liked the french ships. But I had no Idea what works of art they were.
Look at those stairs curving up! and the shape of the bridge deck! I'm stoked just seeing what I have.

Mark,

Many thanks for showing the Bouvines examples.

In those plans, are there a set for Jaureguiberry?

58 pages - 22.6MB.

Unbelievable detail including hull lines, stem detail, stern and rudder detail, boilers, engine, screw, gun sight lines, and a bunch of sheets dedicated to the guns.
