Hi All,

I'm looking for plans of CSS Alabama. The ship was built in 1862 as "Hull 290" by John Laird Sons Company in Birkenhead, England. I want to build a functional scale RC model. Any information to help me find the plans will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Edwin van Doorn

I guess that you should buy "CSS Alabama: Anatomy of a Confederate Raider" by Andrew Bowcock. It's probably the best single source of information about the Alabama.

All the best,
Kaz

There's a second-hand copy of that book at the De Slegte in Utrecht the last time I checked.
