Some of these ships might work in a convoy:

Several good ship links here:

The Iceberg links are another good source of ship models:

Depends on what you're looking for.

For basic wargames, there are 2-d card style available from Junior General Home Page - several different ones under "Battle of the Atlantic". The site has actual games to use with these cards. I found the site when my son needed trireme models to use in his Interpretive History class.

The Canadian Navy also has several relevant 2d models on their website. Canadian Navy: Canadian Naval Centennial - Downloads

Meanwhile, JSC has a 1/400 scale Victory Ship and a number of related vessels. JSC - paper models ships vessels aircrafts architecture

If you want a totally detailed Liberty Ship - Halinski's 1/200 scale model of the Jeremiah O'Brien is quite a challenge, but I've seen good results. Unfortunately it is out of stock at Halinski right now.

Olli has some very relevant models here. Ships/ Military and Zivil - Olli's Papermodels

Hanamaga is an old favorite - with numerous links that may be relevant. 50 ‘D”•

There's even a model of a u-boat base that you can find here. U-Boat Pen Diorama

S.S. John W. Brown & S.S. Grainton

The Project Liberty Ship has a store where you seemingly still can order a 1/250 paper model of the Liberty ship S.S. John W. Brown. It is in fact a German Wilhelmshaven model, which speaks for its quality. Fingers crossed that some are left.

You can read a detailed build report of this kit in two parts, here and here, with many suggestions for improvements.

In addition, the German CFM Verlag has a 1/250 model of the convoy ship S.S. Grainton. It looks very good, too.

I'm glad I found these, since I knew at the back of my head they were out there somewhere. If I built a ship, these would be high on my wish-list.

Hello Edd,

I would like to add the JEREMIAH O' BRIEN combined with the ORP KRAKOWIAK from Halinski, both scaled in 1:200 full hull ships and in an extraordinary quality ...

With lovely greetings
the Wilfried

I removed the url to your file, as it is a pirated copy/Illegal scan of 2 commercially available models by the Halinski publishing house.
I know for a fact they have never authorized or published a digital copy of their kits.

I was unaware of it being a illegal copy, I had found it recently and thought it was a good go to the question posted so long ago. Besides in most cases people's inkjet printers really are not up to the job on printing things like this on standers printer paper it will be muddy as heck.
