Pieter writes:  Here some new progress views of my model- the rangefinders took up some time- what is lacking are some screw bolts- I already bought them on e-bay and will fit them later. A switch on the back plate of her quad 40mm mount also has to be made but for the time being I will first continue some work on the #2 16-Inch turret.


USS Bennett (DD-473) in 1/48 scale by Ron Berry (Bath Builder)

This is the USS Bennett DD473, which was constructed over the course of over two years.  The frame work is 1/4 inch plywood, planked with  3/32 inch maple with a layer of plastic that insures that it is water proof. The decks are of marine/aircraft plywood. The structures above deck are basswood. The mast is brass as are the stanchions and rails. Ron did a lot of carving, including the anchors,whale boats, guns,and many other fititings.
