If you mean the monitor, yes. This is part of an ongoing project to create a full, detailed set of plans of the unbuilt 1235 Danube river monitor project of 1916. I have found a later version of the plans that included lines, so I am not entirely pulling this out of thin air. The idea is to create a complete set of plans to go with the two drawings already hosted on this site, and to eventually build a model.

Hi
Iain, Interesting drawings of the boat, where did you find pics with hull lines ?
These are some pics of my model of the monitor @1/48 scale, built from drawings I made from the pics on this site. I used design Cad V13 to draw mine, not quite as good as the superb drawings on this site




I made a british insect class a few years ago, I gave the Danube monitor the same sort of hull, she sails very well indeed.

I'll have to show the lines I've managed to dig up, as well as my final drawings.

The model is rather nicely done; however, I believe that the deck would have been covered with linoleum.

I must admit the colours were a bit of a guess, What shade of green ? is there a Humbrol/tamiya paint colour that's a close match.
I will put a respray on my project list,
cheers
Bart

Oops, that's a typo. Insteed of 'geen' it should be 'been.'

As to the linoleum colour, it should be brown. Somewhere in my junk, I have paint samples that mach it and standard A-H naval colours post 1901. I'll try to find it.
