I'm in the middle of a major 3-car garage and workbench re-build (my hobby workshop is in the garage). While renovating the workbench section, I ran across a full set of plans for the USS Constellation and the USS 32 gun Frigate Essex. These plans are approximately 18"x30" fold outs, but the Essex is a little less complete than the Constellation. They appear to be from Scientific Models from the late 1950s or early 60s, but they are very nice. I believe I found them in a LHS that was closing about 15 years ago, and placed them in a little used drawer in my workshop. I don't want to throw them away, The are absolutely beautiful renditions. I'm willing to send them free (US only) to anyone who would give them a good home--(overseas postage I'd need help with). They'd look absolutely beautiful framed, or you could use them to wallpaper a small bathroom or closet! PM me if you are interested.
VR, Russ

If I had seen this post earlier, I certainly would have made a play for them. Any chance you made a copy or two???

Sorry, Timothy, they are a bit large for my copier. I wish I could, but these are really too large to get effective copies.
