USS READY PGM-87 - Posted: 8 days ago by rustypiston
The USS READY was an Asheville class gunboat that saw service in the USN during the Vietnam period of the 1970's. Four of the boats were outfitted with RIM missiles and served with the US 6th fleet until decommissioned in the late 1970's. The 51" model is a Dumas kit from the 80's and like other Dumas offerings rather basic. I didn't use the kit's metal fittings but replaced them with scratch built items. To make my boat a little different I built the missile launchers that the READY carried. It's just finished so I hope to have it "underway" next spring.

Tried it - it does exactly the same thing this does
Response by Dave M on the 19th Jun 2017
Hi JTodd
Perhaps I should have explained better when I pointed you in that direction.
The intention of the Build Blog is to allow you to post details and Pics as you build so our members can share your experience. It works fine if used in this way and there are plenty of Build Blogs in support of this.
You can easily add to your build blog and give each addition a title relevant to the build, plus any written comments and pics, this then allows others to follow your progress.
Stephen is possibly on holiday but will be able to advise you on his return.
If the weather over your side of the pond is anything like the UK your Constellation has possibly been in the doldrums, our Schooners on my sailing lake certainly have!
I look forward to many more posts showing your models and building skills.
Regards
Dave

BRAVO ZULU! Very fine replica sir. As small boy, I invested many hours in the basement on Dad's workbench to construct the Revell plastic kit of USS CONSTITUTION. I remember the detail of that model and subsequent plastic & wooden builds, so I can fathom the painstaking effort it involved to create this work of art. Thank you.
FAIR WINDS & FOLLOWING SEAS

Wooden structure model fishing boats. Was done on his knee at home in the kitchen from the remnants of plywood, balsa etc. Motor 1 pc 600 with water cooling, 1pc battery NiCd 3000 mA. Excellent handling characteristics. Even though it was not good at handling the water looks great.
