Spindrift Blueprints

Here's my first pass across the top of a giant sheet (6' x 40"?) of the blueprints for the Spindrift miniature.

The sheet is dated August 14, 1967. I'll do two other passes across the sheet over the next few days or so and post them here. I sure hope the moderators don't mind me altering my identity (2, 3, etc) so as I have room to post all these attachments that I've been posting (I also have exterior plans for one version of the Proteus I'd like to upload someday as well). I hope that someone can stitch them together with Photoshop or something and perhaps post them on a more permanent and less easily lost web page somewhere.

It won't be hard at all to stitch them together. I have Photoshop but I've been also getting into using the free open source GIMP (www.gimp.org) for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It pretty much does everything Photoshop can do and has plenty of plugins available.

Excellent stuff, thanks. I've always loved the Spindrift. One of the coolest designs ever.

I'll work on these tomorrow. I've used Photoshop since Photoshop 3 and now use CS3. As long as there is overlap between the images, they will stitch together nicely. Thanks for these!

Heck no, post away. The Spindrift is one of my faves.

So long as you're not hiding it - and I'm not even slightly insinuating that you are, mind you! - and you've got Rob & I to back you up with Hank, I don't see any problems. He might get a bit upset about the multiple accounts and delete the secondaries, tho, just so you're aware of that possibility. I'll argue to keep your first account here and active, tho.

Actually, the multiple accounts thing is getting mighty unwieldy from this end. Which did I post that drawing from, and where did I put it??? I'm just hoping that before I do nuked, someone here does download and save and stitch together and format these into something savable and usable.

That was a hint guys. Someone do something with these. I think this is a great place to post these a) because I can post these here, and b) the users of this group are the best people in the world to have these.

It's strange. A couple of these scans turned out really differently from each other - darker or a file size 4 times that of the previous. I've tried to keep them pretty equal. If any of these need rescanning, or I've missed an overlap, let me know.

Whaddya mean, get my own web space and post these myself. I'm still working with a film camera. I'm still amazed I've figured out how to use a scanner.

I've got a sheet named "1 of 4" of the interior of the Spindrift. It shows one wall and the floor plan. I'm not sure if it's accurate but I'll start scanning it, too, in case anyone's interested. Hmmm, I wonder if I'll have enough room to do the Proteus...

But even if the datails aren't correct, I figure maybe some of the main dimensions might be, and might be of help to modelers.

And sharing these takes a big weight off my shoulders. Every time I look at these (and that isn't very often! - getting old and yellowed and crumbling - the blueprints, I mean, tho I am sitting at home these last few days with a chestful of broken ribs from a bicycling crash and burn) I know that other people need to have access to this stuff. And of everyone I've ever seen it's the people on this site who seem the most interested. So I hope this helps with modeling projects! Now download them quickly!

I doubt the posts themselves would be deleted, so I wouldn't worry about that. Hank's not at all like that. The worst he would likely do is BAN the extra accounts, not DELETE. A Ban of your other accounts won't delete the posts, nor should a deletion of said accounts. I shouldn't have used that word and my apologies if it's caused you a panic. That wasn't my intention, I promise.

Still, you never know, so get to DLin' those files, folks!
