Can you provide anymore information on the Baghdad, did she have any sisters or had she been sold on and had a name change anytime?
Where have you tried to find plans?
Will have a look but cant promise you anything.

Thanks Cueball, that helps a lot but being built in Russia may make it difficult to find plans. Thats why I was after a new name or a sister.
Will give it a try.

It has only been a couple of days and unfortunately when I have good days I have to try fitting other things in.
I am still chasing plans and will let you know if I find some.

Alwalid, where did you find the plans, how good do they look, how many sheets and how much will they cost?
I am glad you have found them as I was going mad searching Russian sites after searching all the other sites I know.
I was going to suggest you tried the owners, perhaps a set hidden away somewhere. Now know you would have tried them as your dad sailed on her.
Nice looking ship but with all those cranes the deck machinery could be a pain to build.
Let me know how it goes with the plans and once you start enjoy the building.

Thank you Don . Sorry if I made you busy. thank you for your helping . i make research at all russian and Ukraine websites . but the problem was that website just use russian language . with google translator I made some russian sentences.
at last Gentleman Mr. Andrey Shlyakhov who own the Marine Engineering Bureau (http://meb.com.ua/) send about nine plans and the specification book without any cost.
I were contact the owner Iraqi State for maritime transport co. but Unfortunately, all their do***ents were burned in the last war 2003.
Now really i am happy and i will try to make the model like real.
Thank you again Don . and also the thanks for all members at this great website.

Gents,
My father sailed on Al-Abedin which is sister to MV Baghdad in 1972. Can you please share the plans and specification so as to enable me to build a model of the vessel as a gift. I have tried reaching out to the marine engineer mentioned above but cannot locate him.

Here is a pic of MV Al-Abedin:

Hello,

I sailed on many of this class that were built for Kuwait Shipping Company, they were hard working ships for the engineers. Can you send me the plans you have if I send you a Private Message with my email?
I wish you well with your project build, please post a picture when it is finished.

Regards
AlbieR
