John McEwan saw my post about NB Dover from a zillion years ago (in blog years) and asks:
1937 Town Class, large Woolwich motorboat Dover. My father is interested in building a model of this particular Harland and Wolff boat. Where would we get plans of the vessel to scale down?
I dunno. There must be loads of people who know the answer, but I don't. I'm sorry to let you down. Any suggestions, Buttoneers?
One possibility is A.M. Models, who actually offer to build scale models of particular narrowboats themselves.
(I don't know what the 'M' of A.M. Models represents. Could it be, by any chance, er, McEwan, as in 'John McEwan'? If so, John knows rather more than me.)
Update 1: Many thanks to both George Boyle and Colin Marshall for reminding me about Laurence Hogg's excellent source of narrowboat plans:
That led me to call Laurence (his phone number's on his site and he's always willing to speak), and he reminded me about his special Ebay shop, Train Boat Depot, where you can buy them online with just a mouse-click. His plans are mostly 1/24 scale (1/2" to 1ft), making a 3ft model of a full-sized narrowboat.
Update 2: I just remembered that I wrote about Laurence's plans a couple of years ago.
