I am not a health care worker, albeit a cook at Vermont’s (USA) VA Hospital and I’m okay.

God bless you all.

So this ship is converted directly from the WW2 configuration? No, I believe that Montana’s career would have paralleled that of the Iowa’s so I’ll proceed accordingly. I’ll begin the series with USS Montana (BB-67) as commissioned. General characteristics (Design BB67-4) Displacement: 63,221 long ...

Nice, but would the MK41 work so constricted by the funnels and masts? Could you not ditch some of the 5" guns and reduce crew & weight as well to give you plenty of space for the Mk41s say beside the rear funnel (then put the harpoons in the gap?)? Potentially also remove some 5" forward for more ...

Ian: Nice stuff. A few things jump out at me: 1. Harpoon canisters have no blast deflectors and launching would be difficult especially from the forward position 2. The top view of the 5" guns doesn't seem correct to me - I think only the rear of the mount has a beveled edge. Check out photos of the...

It was August of 1972; I was walking across the lobby of Recruit Training Command Headquarters San Diego, when I laid eyes on a six plus foot brass ship model encased in glass. As I approached the case, I mistook the craft for a battleship, three triple turrets et al; after a cursory glance I realiz...
