Just curious, I've been searching and searching the internet for days, and
while I can find plenty of photographs, I'm looking for some drawings and/or
plans for WW2-era boats, in particular the T2 Tanker, Victory Ship, and
Liberty Ship, for a project.
Can anyone tell me where I might find online technical resources with plans
Thanks very much.
That's a start, thanks.
I'd prefer abit more detail though, you're right they're rather simplistic.
Some good quality line drawings would be great, or some general arrangement
I've got no particulars for ship name, so any would do. Found more pictures
than I could ever use, but need good drawings to put it all together.

You may need to take a trip to the National Archives II,
in Maryland - that is where most of the BuShips drawings and
photos are archived.
I don't know if the Floating Drydock has plan booklets on
those ships or not - they probably do, I just haven't paid much
attention. They have a website.
You can also contact the SS Jerimiah Brown (I think that
is the name) in San Francisco and see what informtion they
I would recommend you try Bluejacket Shipcrafters. They make a series
of 1/192 scale shipmodel kits and have all three vessels you mention in
their line. I believe you can buy just the plans sets if you so wish.
