Hi
I´m new on this site and what a amazing site it is, have used hours to look on pictures and reading things on the forum. I am a modelbuilder and want to build the french tug "Bourbon Abeille" but can´t find any usefull information about it or body/lines plan over it somewhere. Have tryed on different models forum, but no luck so far, know there is a frenc company (MRB)who sells the plan, but many have told me that the plans are very poor and for no good. Have been waiting for Billing Boats to release the kit, they said in 2011 that the just need few adjustment from RR, before it went to sale, but still not on the marked, therefore I scracht built one by my self instead. But it will be alot easyér if their was some one who have a plan over Bourbon Abeille and I can get a copy of it. My plan was to built it in scale 1:50 and RC controlled and lot of functional details, by hope some of you kind people out there can help me :-)
Best Regards from Denmark
Brian Larsen.

Hi Brian,

The MRB plan may be lacking details but it is definitively based upon actual drawings.

Suggest you get that one and improve détails based on photos.

Hi Roland

Have orderet the (MRB) plan over Bourbon Abeille today, so will be interest to see in a few days how good the plan are. The most important are the drawings of the frames to construct the hull, if I just can built the hull, then anything else is able to be built out of what you see on pictures.

Regards Brian....

I've been trying to get hold of a set of plans for the Abeille Bourbon for ages! I looked at the MRB plans, but unfortunately they're on paper - and I need a digital set, as I work in 3D. Does anyone know of anywhere that either sells (or preferably, freely distributes) digital versions of the Abbeille Bourbon plans (mainly the linesplan, I can work out the rest from the internet!).

And with that, I will now return to my hole.

Hi Smithy166

On the german modelsite www.rc-modellbau-schiffe.de there is a user named "Deadwood", his real name are Ralph, he have made the Bourbon Abeille line drawings in 3D, try to contact him for help. The lineplan are on the forum of the german site, so you can look at it first, hopefully this can help you. I still need my plans on paper ;-)

Regards Brian.

Perhaps it would help to search with the ship's real name, "Abeille Bourbon"...
