Bluebird & Other Scale Models

Post by danatkins » Wed Aug 05, 2009 4:38 pm

Hi Everyone, I am looking for a decent set of plans for Bluebird K7 that I could make a decent model for myself. I know there are kits out there but I want to start with the internal frame and build an as-accurate-as-i can model from the bottom up. Please get in touch if you have a copy of the plans or know where I can get one.

Thanks
:)

There was a set of plans produced a few years back, at 1:9th scale. They were produced from some of Ken Norris's general arrangement plans of K7, and produced with his authority and permission. Think they appeared in Model boats magazine. Would perhaps suggest getting hold of a copy of these alternatively some plans are offered for sale on http://www.acrossthelake.com/ click the collectors tab and there is a whole bunch of plans for sale.

Hi There,

I can supply K7 Plans, as drawn-up for Ken Norris by Richard Corrigan. Ken gave me permission to scan them and reproduce them on CD.

Cost in the U.K. is £5.50 plus £1 P&P, and can be posted off by return mail.

Kindest regards, Fred

Mike - stop showing off and, Fred, stop advertising on our forum or mike will moderate you.

Thanks for the plug Bill,
I don't need to advertise, as sales aren't limited to this Forum, and are going very well.
Thanks and regards, to all. Fred

Hey Fred, I hope you're not getting all touchy in your old age. You know I'm only teasing.

You're a different Andy to the one Mike didn't really make a model for. Now I'm confused!
