For the waterliners, the Danish navy took a great shot of Peter the Great as she passed through the Danish Straits on her way to St. Petersburg earlier this week - the camera orientation and calm waters make her wake pattern very clear to discern and replicate:

Does any one know where a person can obtain the Kirov plan book, and how accurate is it?

If this has been asked before in the duration of this thread I apologize:
Where was the ship's bell located on the Varyag? I have seen a photo of it on line but can't tell where it was mounted.
TIA,
Chuck

It can be seen at least here on the starboard side amidships: https://i.imgur.com/jDWaj.jpg

Hi Chuck, if you look at Tim's first link you will also see a second bell, located on the starboard aft signal deck (rear of the foremast)

The bell located on one deck, near the gangway, is the ceremonial ship's bell and is only shipped when the vessel is in harbour, at anchor or at a buoy etc.

Aha. Yes, I see the other one now. The one on the forward superstructure looks like the one I have a closeup of. Thanks for the clarification! :smallsmile:
