    RE: 16-17 century Battleship plans ?

    Did they make "battleships" in the sail era?? sorry but every thing I have read about the sail era warships was about frigates and Galleons. No battleships, No destroyers or even Cruisers. Those came much much later.

    RE: 18-19 century Battleship plans ?

    Let's see... Ship of the Line... Line of Battle ship... Battleship... they all mean the same thing, its just that the term Ship of the Line was more popular in the sailing days. Whatever it is, they are the big nasties with lots of guns.

    I have a collection of plans, including several multi-deck ships of the line. I even have a collection of hulls by Chapman, the most famous shipbuilder of his day.
    PM me your email (DO NOT POST IT HERE DIRECTLY) and I will email a list of plans to you.

    I have only one condition: don't sell the plans. I got 'em all for free, and they'd better stay that way.

    From 17th to mid-19th centuries, navies (most notably British Royal Navy) used a rating system for warship. There were 6 ratings (first through 6th) with the top 4 being "ships of the line". Fifth & sixth rates were frigates. What you probably want to look for is "First Rate Ship of the Line". That would be what eventually evolved into the "battleship" in the late 19th century.

    RE: 18-19 century Battleship plans ?

    There are lots of plans of French ships here:www.servicehistorique.sga.defense.gouv.fr/02fonds-collections/banquedocuments/planbato/planbato/listebato/listebato.php, though mostly 19th and 20th century. I seem to recall older ships in another section of the sit, but do not reemember where, exactly - might want to look around a bit. If you speak French, it might help, or use Google Translate, perhaps.

    Good luck,

    Wreno

    Sorry ZeuSsss, if Google Translate doesn't help then it looks like you'll have to find your plans the same way we all do: guess and check. Of course, if you know any ships by name that'll help speed the process.

    Did you get my email with plans?

    Dear Kotori,
    Yes, it is indeed a great thing to keep the plans free. Ihave a few plans, but I need to scan them, and Iwill quickly share them here.
    Until then, please, will you be so kind to send me the plans you have? Thank you in advance!

    RE: 18-19 century Battleship plans ?

    Okay, I just have to ask, are you looking for a true "battleship" or a "ship of the line" or frigate? I can go on, but to keep it brief, there were many different kinds of "battleship" in the late 19th century. To give you an example, here's some general types:
    wooden hulled with sails (think USS constitution, HMS Victory) http://www.sculptor-iangb.com/hms-victory.htm
    wooden hulled with sails and screw (think USS Kearsarge, CSS Alabama) http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/s...k/kearsarg.htm
    wooden hulled with metal armor, sails and screw (think HMS Warrior) http://www.solarnavigator.net/history/hms_warrior.
    armored casement with screw(think USS Merrimack/CSS Virginia) http://americancivilwar.com/tcwn/civ..._Virginia.html
    Monitors (no embelishment needed, I hope) http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/s...-m/monitor.htm
    Barbette ships with Monitor style turrets, sails and screw (think HMS Captain and HMS Monarch) http://www.battleships-cruisers.co.u...ptain_1869.htm
    Pre-Dreadnought with main turrets, screw drive and multiple sizes of secondary guns (think HMS formidable or HMS King Edward VII) http://www.worldwar1.co.uk/pre-dread...dward-vii.html

    Okay, which do you want?
