HMAS Voyager Model by Ken Taylor
Many people build models, I guess in the main from kits, I built a model of USS Blue the American Destroyer that came alongside the burning and stricken Canberra after the Battle of Savo Island on August 9 1942 to rescue many of her crew, myself included.
On the other hand are a devoted band of model makers who work from scratch and detailed plans, one such is Ken Taylor who has devoted 9 years of his life, and I imagine a large amount of his home living space to house the keel when laid, and the model as it grew to the finished wonder. It is on a large scale of 1.24, not too many modelers are that ambitious.
I am unsure where the model had finished up, it deserves a very public display to be worthy of its magnificance.
However, AHOY in its small way pays tribute to Ken and his art in producing this model of HMAS Voyager.

I read your interesting article on the HMAS Voyager built by Ken Taylor.
In the article you were not sure where the model ended up. Please refer to
I found your site because I too am looking to build a model at 1:48 scale, but as yet cannot locate any builders plans.
