I don't know of any models for lumber schooners....BTW...what size/type/era are you looking for?..IE sail, steam?...and are you looking for standard size lumber schooners or "doghole" lumber schooners.

There was a guy on ebay (don't recall the seller) that was selling some very nice ship plan-sets one of which was a for a vertical prow steel hulled "doghole" schooner.  I had the chance to look at the planset for this ship, and though a lot of work (especially if not a ship modeler)...it would have made for a beautiful ship......really made me want to build one.

Here is a PDF with some information as to where some plans are available, and some info on a build, for the Lumber Schooner Willapa.
