: In my quest to find plans for a 1022 type
: Islander freighter, I found that the ship I
: actually want to build (USS Rigel AR11/AD13)
: is a type 1079.
: Not a problem because they are very similar
: wtih the primary difference being the 1022
: is 401x54 feet and the 1079 is 424x54 feet.
: There are slight differences in
: superstructure, bow and stern as well, but
: since I have plans for both, I can see the
: modifications needed.
: I posted this for scratch builders in 1/700
: or maybe 1/350 scales as these plans could
: produce auxiliaries and convoy ships for
: your fleet.
