Farm passenger ship free plans

Here is a good piece. The plan have a missing part but experienced model makers can complete it by theirselves, and begginers can try too:) There is some info about the ship but it's not in english. I also found the picture below, i'm not sure that its the same ship but looks similar and named KV FARM. Maybe she could be converted to another kind of ship... Please note if you have information...

GÜZELHİSAR bosphorus ferry plans (tiff)

And here is one of the best ships in my archive. Güzelhisar.

She was built in 1911 by R&W Hawthorn Leslie& CoLd in NewCastle England. She had a sister named "Kalender" . The owner of the ship was Seyr-i Sefain İdaresi which was the bosphorus ferry company of Istanbul , Turkiye. She had 970 passenger capability in summer and 790 in winter. She was 46.41 Meters long and 7.95 meters wide and she was a double screw, tripple expantion steam engined ferry. Served between 1911-1986 ,after retirement turkish businesman Rahmi Koç bought her to restore but nobody heard about the restoration after that. She was the last ship of seyr-i sefain idaresi. (Then company named Denizcilik İşletmeleri).

Many of the old bosphorus ships are scrapped, sold for converting to restaurants/hotels or retired and waiting for their destiny. The last valueable one is a 1961 clyde built steamer ferry waiting in Haliç. Their engines are known as the highest level in steam technology, that never used in ferries before or after them. whatever...

EDIT: Last Glasgow fairfields built steamer, and the last steamer of Turkey S/S Teğmen Ali İhsan Kalmaz is scrapped :( When will we learn to care about our past?

Hope everyone downloaded this plans starts to build this beauty, i couldn't catch her working time but it would be nice to see people building her...

Calypso Research Vessel Plans (Jacques Cousteau's ship)

Here is the famous research ship all of us know. Jacques Yves Cousteau's "Calypso". There is also some german info with it.

Photo from

Calypso was originally a wooden-hulled minesweeper built for the British
Royal Navy by the Ballard Marine Railway Company of Seatle, Washington, USA. She was a BYMS (British Yard Minesweeper) Mark 1 Class Motor Minesweeper, laid down on 12 August 1941 with the yard designation BYMS-26 and launched on 21 March 1942. She was commissioned into the Royal Navy in February 1943 as HMS J-826 and assigned to active service in the Mediterranean Sea, reclassified as BYMS-2026 in 1944, laid up at Malta and finally struck from the Naval Register in 1947.
World War II she became a ferry between Malta and the island of Gozo, and was renamed after the nymph Calypso, whose island of Ogygia was mythically associated with Gozo.
The Irish millionaire and former
MP Thomas Loel Guinness bought Calypso in 1950 and leased her to Cousteau for a symbolic one franc a year. Cousteau restructured and transformed her into an expedition vessel and support base for diving, filming and oceanographic research.

Lochinvar Clyde Puffer Plans

Clyde Puffers were small coastal cargo ships used in west coast of scotland to carry goods between islands through canals... Puffers had steam engines and the "Puffer" name came from the sound of the old steam engines. With the improvement in steam technology, they no more puffed but the name standed still... You can find more info on internet about puffers, especially about the "Vital Spark"
I built a small one from this plan by printing it on A4 paper, it has no scale information, so we can say that you're a little bit free on it...

You can visit to download the plans.
