  1. 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. 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!
