I have a new fiberglass hull for a USN Tacoma Frigate. I was told it is also a River Class. My club has no British ships in it so this could be the first. I am looking for great 1/96 scale plans of a River class frigate. Can someone point me in the right direction to buy some if there are any?

The hull was received in a trade. :jump_1: The company making it wants to stay nameless for now until they are ready to sell them. I received plans for a USN ship but as I said above a British ship would be much more fun to build. :thumbs_up_1: I can post a pic of the hull if anyone wants to see it.

Joseph

We have about 18 photos of River Class Frigates up on the Flower Class and WWII RN forums now if anyone needs to see them for detailing etc. You will find them all on this and the subsequent webpages http://p214.ezboard.com/ftheflowerclasscorvetteforumsfrm20

David Brown told me he has seen an early draft of it, probably to proof read it, and he was very impressed, got mine pre-ordered at that price I can see it rocket up as soon as it goes out-of-print.

If you guys like the WW2 RN frigates, you may enjoy their siblings, RN sloops. I am scratchbuilding a Bittern-class sloop and, like the frigates and corvettes, there is a wide range of types and classes from which to choose. A great book on these is available, and highly recommended by yours truly:

Yes I have that one, it is indeed the best volume on the sloops available at the moment. Anyone interested should buy it ASAP as the World Ship Society publications go out of print fast and then become very difficult and expensive to obtain.

There are a large number of sloop images on my website here http://p214.ezboard.com/ftheflowerclass ... orumsfrm20 Mainly Black Swans, but some others on there too. Go to the other pages to see the sloops as the first two pages are mostly River Class.
