Help me, pupupuhleaase!!!

I need a copy of deck plans for the battlecruiser Gneisenau (Scharnhorst will do, being similar enough). Any book titles or websites are appreciated, as would info on the possible location of the original plans.
If anybody in Norway can give me the contact info and address of Austr√¬•t Fort near Trondheim where the aft main turret is currently located that'd be great.
Danish people can help too with similar info on
Stevnsfort near R√¬łdvig.

It's for a marine history project, in case you're wondering http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Which scale do you need? How much detail? Is this is serious project? You can buy highly detailed plans, but are these what you want? What are they for?

Maybe he wants to build his own Navy and terrorise the high seas from secret locations inside Scandinavian fjords? And who are we to judge?

I can give you some sources but I'll need to know what kind of plans you require. Plans run the gamut from 1:100 scale items with huge amounts of detail to ones that are too small to be of much value for some projects.

Hi!

Austr√¬•t Fort has no real postal adress as far as I can see. It is now a musuem. It is administrated by 'Rustkammeret' in Trondheim.

Try e-mailing at rustkammeret@start.no, or go to this norwegian page for telephone numbers etc. http://www.mil.no/felles/rkt/start/Aust_tt_Fort/
