Ships' plans

Mick,

The first place to try should always be the National Maritime Museum on 0208 312 6599. They have huge a collection of ships plans held in a seperate archive, with copy facilities.

Depending on whether you need the original plans or simply good general arrangement drawings, there are cheaper alternatives. Let me know if you want more info.

Good luck,

Bruce

Michael, the builders of the ships you are interested in may be able to help you. "Janes" will supply the names, or if you don't have a copy, let me know the ship names.

Best wishes

The ships I'm looking at are a bunch of Flower Class Corvettes built in Aberdeen during WW2. The Maritime Museum in Aberdeen has been contacted, but they were next to useless.

I hadn't thought of the builders. I've got their details so I'll see if they exist in some form.

Nice link Bob, perhaps I should have looked a bit deeper myself.

The NMM collection looks ideal as it includes machinery specs and calculations.
