  1. Hello, everyone. I've been advised to post my inquiries in this section. I'm going to be starting build logs for two ships - a spanish galleon and a french xebec. They are part of a larger project. I need plans for the xebec. Fortunately, I finally found a few places that sell them. Unfortunately, the thumbnails only show me one image despite the site saying several sheets are sold together. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with the Amati xebec kit or the Occre xebec kit, and if you could give more details. Are the plans for plank-on-bulkhead construction? Do the plans include images that can be used for scratch building? I would appreciate the help. Thanks. My original post (more details) follows below. "Hello, everybody! I'm new to these forums, even though I have been lurking in the shadows as a non-member for the past year. It's sad to see such a wealth of information has been lost, but I'm looking forward to adding a new build log to the site. I have been planning to begin a large scale modeling project for quite some time now, but keep putting off. I'm hoping to finally take a crack at it. I have constructed scaled models since I was a child - my projects focus on scratch-built fantasy architectural pieces. Now, I am going to combine this passion with ship building. Currently, I am designing a layout for a section of a seaport city. It will have two ships off the coast in the throes of battle. My ships of choice are a spanish galleon (San Francisco S. XVI, according to the plans) and a xebec/chebec similar to Le Requin. These will be used as a basis, as I plan to modify the designs slightly with fantasy elements. After in-depth research, I have decided to build these ships in a 1/57 scale; I will be working with a great variety of war-game miniatures ranging from 28mm to 32mm scale. The ships will be scratch built due to the specific size I'm working with. Also, I have acquired many reference images including lost MSW build logs and ship plans. I obtained elevations and construction plans for the galleon, but unfortunately, I only have elevations for the xebec. They are beautiful plans, which you can see below, but I need construction plans to build the framework of the hull. I'm hoping someone can help me out with this. I'm looking forward to hearing from you guys and girls!"

If any of you own a copy of the plans, it would be great if you could send me a high-res scan. I appreciate any and all assistance with getting my hands on these. I'm looking forward to hearing from you guys and girls! EDIT: I can't upload the image even though it fits the size constraints!! Bah!
