Another PT-boat site:

http://www.pt-boat.com/
Laser cut 1/35 and 1/20 wood hulls and detailed drawing, mathematics on prop performance and how's with the fittings. It also talks of the different types of motors to use. It is a nice site

Hi, i had this site bookmarked from a while back. I dont remember the original person who found this site and posted it here but its has free plans for French warships. Its all in French but its pretty easy to find the ship you are looking for and go from there, hope it helps.

I just found out about this website:

http://www.scalehardware.com/

Lots of cool little bolts, nuts, rivets, etc. for the large scale builder.

Steve,
I just printed off your list. I personally want to thank you for taking the time to post such a treasure trove of information. I want to scatch-build an ironclad someday (if and when I can decide on a subject) and this is a great starting point. Thank you again.
Bruce
