Cabin Layout on a Swan or Oliver Cromwell ship

Recommended Posts

Hello Ship Mates

I am trying to find a picture or drawing of the aft housing on a Swan or Oliver Cromwell ship. My Harold Hahn plans do show me the Magazine deck but nothing for the deck above. I have been kind of thinking that I want to build a cutout ship and it would be nice to add these details top my Oliver Cromwell,                                                              ENJOY.                                                                                             Regards   Lawrence

Hey Lawrence, have you seen the books The Fully Framed Model - Swan Class by David Antsecherl, VOL1, chapter 5?

 

Also, Dan Vadis in this forum did a superb job of his Vulture using Mr. Antscherl's books (see his work in the scratch build section of this forum).

 

Have fun!               Duff

Hello  Duff

Yes, I do have volumes 1 & 2  of Davids books. Also, I have just come from looking at Dan's Vulture Build, it sure is a beauty with a lot of very helpful hints. I was looking for a full layout of the center aft deck, Thanks for your help,           ENJOY.       Regards   Lawrence

Sometimes, if an original deck plan is not available, you have to interpolate from similar plans. The cabin/deck layouts were pretty standardized at this time period for each class of ship.

Hello Druxey

I thank you very much for your help and information, Yes, I have been thinking of doing just that, but I was hoping that I could find the real layout,                                                           ENJOY.                                                                                                          Regards   Lawrence
