Help!
Willemoes missile boat

Hello fellow modelers

I am planning ( hoping ? ) to build a large scale RC model of the Danish WILLEMOES class missile boat, however photos of this boat are few and far between, line drawings cannot be found...

if anyone has a source for line drawings, GA drawings or have built this model i would like to hear from you

Cheers and thanks TIA

Bill, I did a quick search and found some stuff (and pics) for you. But on the second page of the google search I found this article about one of the boats being donated to Danish Naval Museum collection which means they would have lots of good info on her. http://www.navalhistory.dk/english/n...hestedOpen.htm Just spitballing maybe contact Josse or one of the European members and see if they could get you some pics also.

Found this thread on the board which briefly mentions the missile boats maybe that could help also. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...1386931&page=2

These may not have a lot of info but they do have at least a pic.

Hope this helps or at least points you in a right direction.....

P.S. sometimes it is nice to be unemployed (except when you have to pay the bills). If someone needs some research done for things like this please let me know, will be glad to help.

Willemoes

Hi Foo

thanks very much for your effort, have seen and DL all those photos , will try to contact the museum to see if GA drawings are available...or contact a modeler living in that area...my other option
is to use my graphics program and create a set of basic plans from a broadside view, not a replica but very close...

Regards
Leaky bill(ge)
