This post might be better suited to posting at steelnavy.com. But there is a chance that some reenactors may be good ship modelers.
First, I'm looking for scale drawing of an improved Monitor, the Passaic class. At 1/48th scale that ship would scale out to about 4' 1"(give or take). At 1/96 scale (typical ship scale) the Passaic scales out to 2', not a big model. Where can you get plans?
Second, I'm asking just a general question of reenactors. If there is a large reenactment and some craftsman builds a superior model of a Civil War ship and puts it on display at some tent over by the vendor section then do the reenactors like that sort of thing?
I've seen some craftsmen build superior quality models of Civil War ships. It's a pleasure to look at them.
Thanks in advance.
