I didn't see an attack transport topic, sorry if I missed it. On the USS Montrose at the bow(front) there is a gun there and to me it looks to be a quad 40 bofor, is it?

Asking out of ignorance, is that an associated director aft of the gun? If so, what model?

Does any know what weapons were on the montrose during the 1967-1970 time period? And where the information came from.

Thanks

After searching the net and coming up blank I'd thought I would throw this out to the forum.

I'm looking to build an 1/700 APA either in a C3-P&C (eg; Crescent City) and/or a USSB 1029 "President" type of transport. I have the WSW Callaway C3 which differs from the hulls I'm
looking for.

I know they don't exist in injection mould, but was wondering if anyone has any info a resin kit.
I've searched the site sponsors and the web and am still in the dark.

If anyone can point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Paul

Russ, that was one of the first places I checked. Mostly AK's are offered, but not the hull I'm looking for. Although Harry's C2 Sea Witch, will make a nice APA-49 class that I plan to build also.

Thanks,

Paul

In reply to Werner's question of Sept. 12th, Carl Musselman tells me that is a mk51 director in a raised tub. Some of the Barnegat class AVP's had them, and Carl's knowledge of that class is encyclopedic. There is one for the quad 40mm, and one for each of the four twin 40mm's.

Werner,

In the What's New for today ,you'll see a CL by Richard Sliwka. In the last photo, you'll see a Mk 51 director in an elevated tub between the anchor chains.

If you go to the photos from Telford posted in What's New about two weeks ago, on the third page, top row, you'll see three photos of a Montrose kit which the modeler has dramatically improved, something I've been working on for several months. I wish we knew his identity.

Mike, Werner is no longer with us (in the full sense of that term), so he won't be seeing your message, sadly.

Those look really good, Jim!

Are they all built from scratch like the tanker you showed?

Jim,

Your models are so impressive, I bookmark the pages and keep coming back for another look. They are a great example of what to strive for.

Paul
