cquire a unique collection of plans by the Smithsonian Institution! Taken from drawings done for the WPA during the Great Depression, the plans are highly detailed and well executedaccurate enough for the construction of full-sized vessels. Rich in historical value, these "Historic American Merchant Marine Surveys" identify 24 different vessels from 1868 to 1914.

A limited offer from Model Expo! To commemorate the restoration of the Statue of Liberty in 1986, the Smithsonian Institution re-printed the entire set of the WP A surveys-in limited edition quantities of fewer than 1,000 per set. But, the printer could not deliver in time for the festivities. After warehousing the plans for almost 10 years, the Smithsonian recently put the entire lot on the auction block. We were able to obtain all available sets. Now, you won' t find these specially printed plans anywhere else-not even at the Smithsonian!
