I spent 6 Years on the USCGC Duane from right out of Boot Camp. I was part of the Decommissioning Crew at the end as a GM1.

Thank you for bringing my ship back to life!!

I just want to thank you for this splendid thread. I have dropped in from time to time without ever commenting on it and I just want to say thank you and may you beat all the health problems that you have. It is an inspiring site to see the creation of such a fine vessel and it gives hope to all of us procrastinating builders.

Again I wish you and your family well.

Sincerely

Billy

Thank you! I am a newbie here, and have just read through the Kiev and Duane threads over the past three days--the most enjoyable reading I have had for many years. I've built an Active-class cutter in 1:160, and am now building a Reliance-class. The techniques you and Dave have shown have helped me beyond any reasonable expectation. Now on to the rest of the builds . . .

Thank you, and prayers for your health!

Peter Nolan

What is the "litho" that you use for plating? Is it brass sheet? Is it what we in the US call "flashing?"

I have now read completely through four documented builds--Kiev, Indiana, Duane, and Indianaplois--and have never learned more about shipbuilding. I'm late to this hobby, but will start posting documented build for three small ships in 1:160: a 173' WW II subchaser, a 173' Aggressive class minesweeper, and a 210' Reliance-class cutter (both pre- and post- the 1980s rebuilds.

I have tried to keep my log-in up-to-date, but seem to be posting as "guest."

Thanks for posting peter, I look forward to your builds, Litho plate is an alliminium, it very light, easy to bend and cut, its what is left after the printer has finished with his printing work. they dont use alot of it these days, but it is still about. My good friend Dave W got my supply for me. :heh: :heh: :thumbs_up_1: :wave_1:
