RMS Edinburgh Castle, Pretoria Castle and Pendennis Castle

Having sailed on all three of these vessels, I am trying to find plans with a view to building models of these great vessels.

Can anyone assist please?

Neil

No need to - here I am
Brown, on & Ferguson, Glasgow can supply modelmaking plans for Edinburgh Castle. Pendennis Castle plans are at the Ulster Folk And Transport Museum, Northern Ireland, but when I was last in contact, they couldn't supply plan copies because they hadn't been catalogued. Things may have changed since then. Here is model of Edinburgh Castle that I built a number of years ago. I sailed in all three ships as well!

A lot of plans at Glasgow are with the Business Archives, and some more at the Mitchell Library. Usually very expensive nowadays.
