Hi and thanks for all the responses so far, No, we do not have a set of plans for RMS Republic. The webmaster of RMS-Republic.com claims that he has some details, adequate for their salvage operation, and won't release any more information until that is complete. A rough estimate is 3-4 years. Before spending what will obviously be a lot of time and money on a search, the manufacturer wanted to know if it would even be of enough interest to us modellers. So far, on 3 message boards with at least 300+ readers, I have only had 13 positive responses - well, 14 including me. So far, that isn't very encouraging. Nevertheless, I shall conduct another survey shortly, on a vessel of around the same era, where enough plans exist to create a master from. Hopefully there will be better feedback. Sincerely, Michael J. D'Silva
