WOW, cool! THANKS!!!


Just noticed today that I came up as a 'guest' above. Not sure how that happened but, for the record. that was me thanking you for posting. So again, THANKS!

Now a question (well, three); what is that above and abaft the main mast that looks like a torpedo (a torpedo?) and what does it signify, and................why is it not there on the San Juan June 42 diagram?

(I know nothing about this class!). If you saw a drawing of another ship without it, then the artist either didn't put it in, the ship didn't have a torpedo launcher, or the poster edited it out.

Hope this helps.


Helps, and thanks for your reply.

Guess it was inadvertantly left out then, as CL 54 - USS San Juan (previous page) had torps in June 42, and the launcher can be seen on deck below.

No worries, easy to 'fix'!

Thanks, and yes, they are just depictions of the "missile" (in this case the Mark 15 torpedoes used on the class), shown above the ship as putting them below it is confusing to look at. For the CL-54 drawing I just missed it.

Not to derail the thread anymore, but all my Shipbucket work can be found here: http://shipbucket.com/drawings/search?c ... dDate=1960

On my trip to NARA last week I came across one of the rare photos of USS SAN DIEGO as she appeared post initial Fitting-Out, 10 January to about 28 February 1942 (may have departed earlier than this date) at the Boston Navy Yard in a photo collection I had not been in. This was the only photo in an ATLANTA class Cruiser folder. This would be her Shakedown configuration, which lasted about six weeks. The location isn't certain, but likely was off Boston or in Hampton Roads. This photo shows her prior to the quad 1.1-in mount being installed on her fantail. During her Post-Shakedown availability, 15 April to 8 May 1942 at BosNY, she would have had the fourth quad 1.1-in mount installed. Fred had a copy of this image as provided to him from a crewman and a smaller low-res version was posted earlier in this thread ... viewtopic.php?f=48&t=23563&start=160#p492823 ... It was uncertain as to the source or date of that image and isn't available in either the 19-LCM or 80-G collections at NARA. This scan is a better copy than the one I was shown. There likely were additional photos taken at the same time as the aircraft circled the ship.

This image shows that her Mk 4 radars have been censored, but the SC-1 air search radar wasn't.

Just announced by the crew of RV Petrel: the grave of the five Sullivan brothers has been found. USS Juneau rests nearly 2.6 miles below the surface off the Solomon Islands.

Perhaps now the great and tedious debate around what camouflage the ship was painted in can be solved (once more photos are released). ;)

That was some serious violence visited upon that ship.
Here is a photo of what that area did look like:

She may be in four sections - this quick sonar view they posted has "Bow and Stern" listed as well as "forward section." I'm not sure if she's in three pieces and the stern piece is just larger or if there's a fourth "aft section" they didn't show.

I am building a working model and need information on the rudder. Does Anyone have drawings of the rudder they can post or email? Tia
