Lately, I have been doing more writing than model shipbuilding, producing a series of ship plan downloads. These do not contain any model shipbuilding information, only general arrangement plans of merchant ships, plus historical notes.
I have kept well away from famous subjects that have been modelled to death, and this series covers obscure, or semi obscure ships of the merchant navy. Here are the first four issues. Click the link and scroll down a bit after it opens to read the synopsis. Then, if you wish to purchase a download, a button is provided for Paypal or cards. The downloads are £1.99 each.
