Hi Nerys, I think that was only scratch
ing the surface.
I found that lot in about 10 to 15 minutes.
But then I've been used to trawling the WWW for specific info for as long as it's been possible. Gave me the 'Edge' I needed in my job.
Don't want these skills to rust in retirement, and I never could resist a challenge anyway. 😉
Plus I was moved by your story and found it worth following up.
If I can help again please let me know.
Know just what you mean about too many projects 🤔
My Danish fish cutter restoration
and conversion from static to RC has got bogged down until I solve the problem of getting the drive right down next to the keel, my PTB restoration
and conversion to Kennedy's PT109 is shelved for the duration, re-shafting / re-propping Graf Spee and HMS Belfast, upgrading my Southampton tug are gathering dust🤔
Materials gathered for 1/350 Plastic Magic conversions of KGV (thanks Colin) and PoW battleship
s, HMS Hood, HMS Ark Royal, T45 Daring class (witnessed the build
ing of the lead ship! Stitching the modules together was fascinating😊), USS Enterprise CVN65, RMS Titanic, etc etc!!! kits for a 1/96 HMS Manxman and a 1/100 Akula 2 submarine
are lurking in the cellar as well.
Not to mention the 1/24 De Havilland Mosquito as a memorial to my Dad.
Whichever ship you decide to do for your Pa if I can help in any way I'd be very happy to. Maybe you can decipher from his personal records which ship was closest to his sailor
I'd love and be honoured to be able to see some of your Dad's drawings
Bon chance with your current projects, All the best, Doug 😎
