#54764, "Bob Read's CAD Plan availability - March 2017"

Hello everyone,

I was interested in buying a set of Bob Read's CAD Plans Standard but unfortunately, I noticed that the website says "Titanic CAD Plans has suspended operations indefinitely. If and when operations resume, it will be announced on this page."

Doing a search on the forum I noticed that he was out and resumed his sales January last year.

My question is does anyone that knows Bob Read or himself can shed a light if there is any news on a comeback?

I really would like to purchase a 1/350 set of prints for my current Minicraft's construction.

Kindest Regards,

Zeno Silva

Hello Zeno,

I don't have any further information. The announcement on his site seems pretty clear.

If you can't wait for sales of Bob's plans to resume, there are alternatives. This list should not be taken as an endorsement; some of these I have not seen, and some are a few years old and may not reflect the latest research on the ship.



Also, Art Braunschweiger's model website is scheduled to come online in April, and promises to be a very useful resource for anyone building the Minicraft kit.

Regards,
Ralph

I spoke with Bob via email, and he did not indicate if and when he'd resume sales.

I used the Hahn Titanic plans for my model and they served well, so I do endorse them. Bob's plans came out several years after I started; the only reason I didn't use them is because I already had heavily annotated my Hahn plans by then.

Ralph and Art,

Thank you very much for the information. Based on that I ordered from Dr. Hahn a set of his plans, I noticed that working only with the book from Peter Davies-Garner is a bit challenging to design the 3D parts I want to print. I want to get every window and door right.

Kindest Regards,
