Past member (and friend of WCMBC) Doug Galt, who now lives in Kleinmond, has discovered the following website from which can be obtained various (R/C model) ship plans.
Doug's comments: 

I recently purchased plans for a fishing vessel model from this site, cost about $6.00 +$6.00 postage to SA.  I was very pleasantly surprised to receive a CD disk of the plans in digital form plus several very interesting articles relating to plank on frame construction.

I found it to be good value and it's also much cheaper than hard copy plans from UK!

They have a very comprehensive library of plans...

Resin fittings - especially modern Royal Navy vessels
I have a number of resin fittings at 96 scale which I have made.  So anyone building/interested in this scale, I can perhaps assist with fittings.
