    X craft plans/drawings

    Post  Tom(ADMIN) on Sun Dec 12, 2010 11:49 am

    I have quite a lot of drawing and plans of the WW2 British X craft from various sources which I can email copies of to anyone who needs them.

    x-craft plans

    Post  deepdive46 on Mon Dec 13, 2010 5:33 pm

    Hi Richard,
    Just joined I would be most grateful for any plans of an X-craft, recall many years ago about an excellent model that worked on glow engine on the surface and electric power under water! It was lost I believe, caused by suspeced fire in fuel line?

    Hi DD46 :cheers:

    The X that you are talking about is the one that Alf made,
    Alf has been working on a new all alloy type 9 40/c for the last 12 years. + a few Russian boats.

    X-Craft Plans

    Post  mikesivo on Wed Apr 06, 2011 9:12 pm

    I've just joined the forum and would appreciate a set of drawings for an X-Craft as I'm planning to build a 1/12 scale model of one with cut-away interior details.
    Regards,
    Mike S.

    Hi Mike, and welcome to the forum...I'll find the drawings for you tomorrow, they are on a USB stick, and I'll get them emailed to you.

    Good luck with your project, we'd all appreciate you doing a build log as you go.

    Richard,

    Could you let me have a copy of the X-craft drawings, please? I have seen the real thing at the Submarine Museum and would to like to start one as a project.

    Many thanks,

    Another Richard, eh? Welcome to the forum, I'll hunt the plans out again and email them to you this afternoon (just off shopping now)

    Are you building from a kit or scratch building?

    X-craft Plans

    Post  Sonar Ping on Tue Sep 06, 2011 12:50 pm

    The X-craft is a fill in as I cannot get at my S-class because it is in store.

    Initially just building a static model from a kit, then want to scale up to maybe 1/32 and finish with a working model.

    X Craft plans

    Post  Matress on Fri Sep 09, 2011 2:10 am

    Hi Richard

    I would be most interested in your plans for the x craft. I am looking at building a 1:12 scratch built working model.

    Thanks

    Hello Richard, sorry to bother you but I have had a disaster with my laptop and had to buy another. In short I have lost the plans for the X-craft you sent me, wonder if I could ask for them again? I have made my mind up to build it now (from scratch) after seeing a real beaut for sale and beyond my means!! Thanking you in anticipation.

    Hi Richard, I saw your post re the x craft plans and would love a set if possible. My son is currently an Instructor SMQ at HM Naval Base Clyde and is trying to put together a representative history of the Submarine Service in general and Faslane in particular. He is currently putting together a biz plan for display cases etc and he has asked me to help him fill them!!! Any help on this or indeed any RN plans for boats up to present day would be gratefully recieved, Creditation goes without saying. Regards Craig.

    A very interesting project and it would be good to help "our 1:1" fellow enthusiasts!

    Has your son been in touch with the RNSM, for starters?

    Give me a couple of days chaps, and I'll trawl through my ever growing pile of CD's and find the X craft plans, etc.
