Solano Ferry Model

From: "Eddy Matthews"

I looked at [the] model of the CPRR Solano and was in awe! An absolutely beautiful piece of work!

I'd like to make a fully operational radio controlled model of the Solano, and wondered if any plans were available anywhere? ...

I live in England (UK), and run a website devoted to modelling paddlers of all descriptions ... , so I hope you will be able to see I'm serious and not just another time waster! :-)

If you can help in any way I'd be extremeply grateful....

We are interesting in ferry steamer Solano. Is it possible to get some plans?

I am a modeler who likes to do scratch built river and lake side- and stern-wheelers. Originally I was searching San Francisco websites for information about passenger ferries, and came across the extensive information about the Steamship Solano. Can you refer me to an organization that would have plans for sale if I would decide to build this model?
