Chris,
You might try here;

<http://www.modelboats.co.uk/>

They offer 'plans', haven't looked to see what the plans are for, but they
may have something you would be interested in.

for other types including old cruise ships.

So Chris... have you found any attractive ship plans yet?

Have your scratch planes been mostly from plans or have you designed any? I think ships are a little easier to design than planes -- unlike planes, they usually have too much lift and need to be weighed down. (It's a lot easier to add weight than it is to add lightness.) And the way they're painted, it's obvious when you need to tweak the balance a little or when the CG is right. There's still challenges, but it's a pretty doable thing.

How's it going?
