Early 1980's or prior. I think they went to an alloy in late 80's.

Thanks, bee man, good info.

So Jason, looks like all nickels are an alloy, not pure nickel. Maybe you could saw of the 25% thats nickel and just use that . Guess it's back to square one.

After a loooong hiatus, I am working on this model again, just started the balsa sub-planking on the hull sides, and I'm looking for a good name for this one. Here is a list of words prefixed with mis- http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Catego...ixed_with_mis-

So far, I really like Miss Appropriation, Miss Allocation, Miss Belief, Miss Govern, and Miss Guided. I'll look for an appropriate-looking 1930's font and I'm planning to paint the lettering by hand after epoxy, then seal it with varnish.

Updated photos coming soon!

edit> just found Miss Deeds! I think thats my favorite, any other suggestions??
