Cheers for that. Just ordered via Amazon ( along with H G Wells War of the Worlds paperback and BSG Season 4 Soundtrack...I cannot be trusted on Amazon!! ), looking forward to a good read, and possibly some more clues about Oerlikon numbers and placement on the ship. I still vote for two aft, two on the upper bridge wings and two on the aft part of the upper bridge structure, port and starboard. However, still looking at the forward part of the aft boat deck.....

I just read past that section of the book describing the "preparations" and alterations made to Ohio. I think they were quite specific and will help you in your detailing quest. I don't want to spoil your anticipation though, so I'll refrain from posting them.
I don't get to be a tease very often.
Cheers

Teased from across the seas! I think I can wait a few days, it's been seven years in build so far %)

Is there a particular reason for this old thread being pinned to the top?

Mostly cos it is a work in progress, cool as a cucumber, big and heavy, the only SS Ohio on the forum, and it is not a Shannon!!! Honestly, I don't know, but am always grateful to up there with Albert the Tug :-))
