HELLO FROM rusty

HEY Jerry to small no way you can make it into a real nice RC that is the same hull I did my DD 537 on. It would make for a real nice RC but I know you . YUP those are nice hulls . I have had a pair of them gave one away a few years ago wish i did no do it .
BY the way my carrier came home again 5 1/2 feet long . Been doing some more detale to it and somethings I never got a chance to do for the Museum wanted it so I kind of rush it to get it to them. NOW she is home and I can do some more things to it . Do you think I went a little over board with como paint work and deck detae. . THE Slatter will make for a good build . Would you want a 12 ft Evarts class DE all most looks like your ship By the way did you serve on the slatter at one time from what yout saying? OK here is my Carrier. THE real one was built over across the river in vancouver in 43 and captured U 505 sub. THE Only U boat taken in a hold sub. THEY all most lost it but was able to save it . OK keep up the good work. I am now starting to think about the new up coming Montana. ?

WEll jerry I repulled the Wisky again . I want to do it as the Montana but dont have the heart to start cutting . Sometime i am suppose to be getting another Hull if I do then I may do it. I have had that wisky for many years. Ya I know I should just do it. ? I may still do it just have to let it go and just start cutting. Problem maybe once I start cutting I may not know when to stop Ha Ha. DON

Today i made the 4 life raft supports out of brass tubing and test fitted to the deck they seem to be a good fit and everything lines up added some elect conduit also in some areas still have to complete this task maybe tomorrow I had a full wind in my sails today because i was very unhappy for 5 days when my doctor stated i might have mouth cancer but that turned out to be a false alarm as per a ears,nose and throat specialist god bless him ,my doctor scared the crap out of me ,but that's all behind me now lets continue with the Slater which I'm enjoying this build alot

Jerry,
Glad to hear it was only a scare.Had one myself last summer, no fun.
Looks like it did not affect your building though. I am envious of all the fitings you have available in1/96th.
Carry On!
Jonathan

Hey Jonathan how are you doing and those medical scares are terrible it gave me a anixiety attack but alls well now the 1/96 fittings i had from the DE i built a long time ago that got destroyed but i had to buy alot from John Haynes 90% of the guns i had until i learned from the plans that the Slater during the war years had single 20mm's now she has twin 20's and also the war years she had 4 single 40mm guns amidships that I changed to twim 40's now I'm following her profile as she is now Glad you like the build
