The drawings described in this list have been produced to meet the needs of those wishing to build authentic scale models, and every care has been taken to ensure accurate detail. In the case of named ships they have been compiled from the original builders' plans and specifications, personal survey of the actual vessel, or both. Where possible, any changes made during the life of the ship have been noted on the drawings. The range mostly consists of 3 masted Clippers, smaller single and two masted British merchant vessels and a few 17th, 18th and 19th century sailing warships.
