Well, they can be at ANY scale.

If you look under my Butler class DE plans page, you'll see a photo of a very largescale model built from my plan using MANILA FOLDERS, by a vet. AMAZING.

Here is my latest design, I'm working up. Can you guys identify the class?

This isn't available in injection molded plastic kit, and a 1/700 resin kit would be extremely expensive.

She looks Italian to me, Garibaldi maybe? Always glad to see a new cruiser model.

BTW, a belated Thank You, Lou. Your Butler was the first paper ship model I ever built. Glad to see you here now.

Thank you, Scott. It is encouraging for a designer to hear that someone has built his models.

And you're right, of course: they are D'Abruzzi and Garibaldi at 1:700 scale. The turrets and superstructure in the foreground are from the 1:600 prototype.

You guys are SHARP!

Interesting, if alarming, first-time experience in my 25 years of cardstock model building, described under "So I heard this cra-a-a-a-a-ck!" in the Lounge.

Free (but not public domain) cardstock model ship plan for RNoN Sleipner class WW2 No

These were fine, compact ships. It was a tragedy that most of them were caught at anchor on that foggy morning of 9Apr40.

The plan on my webpage is for anyone to print off (preferably onto light gray cardstock paper) and assemble at whatever scale they choose. (Note the "Scale Selector" provided.)

Schoolage children and/or hobbyists might be most interested, especially during bad weather months.

The plan is on/via my http://www.coatneyhistory.com webpage.

My brother in law Roger Grytdal has done a fascinating animation of initial assembly, retrievable at/via http://www.grycon.no/temp/

My selection of designing the Sleipner class is in part in appreciation for my residency/acceptance here in Norway to be with my wife and children.

Thanks for posting the links, Lou!

That animation by your brother-in-law is really quite amazing! An excellent way to show how these models are built. How come the graphics file doesn't jump off the computer and start assembling itself like in the video? Wouldn't THAT be something to see!

A wonderful complement to your fine designs, I should add.

Thank you again!

Cheers!
Jim
