Is it the USS Cole which was attacked by  an explosive motorboat in October 2000 in Aden?

Hi Ian do you know how much ballast you will need to take on? i have just finished a sub and now realise that 20grams can be the difference between sink and swim depending where it's put.

BB,

At this stage - havent a clue! But the tanks have a capacity of about 20l, so I hope that will be enough!

Making nice progress.  O0

Actually, I think that is the Samual B Roberts FFG-58, after she hit a mine in the Persian Gulf.
Because the ship is on the deck straight. That would be the Mighty Servant 2 carrying her.
Check the superstructure and the stacks...

The Cole was set on the Blue Marlin at an angle across the deck.

Oooh, more progress... O0

Cos,
Nice find for the Dockwise 11 and SS-3
I hadn't see those images before.

Ian,

Are you in need of photo references?
I have almost 200 items (75megs) of referances for the Dockwise ships.
Can't imagine how to get them to you,... Mail a disc?

Here are some scans I have archived of a magazine article for Walter Keisling's model.

John,

Looking forward to that light!

I always find this part the slowest and frustrating at times.

Its off the building board! WOO HOO O0

It will have to go back on though after some internal mods and strengthening!

Ian
"Boatmadman", could you please contact me via a PM as I would like to discuss the stability aspects of these fascinating ships. BY.
