Nice looking oiler.
I can only remember one time when I was topside during an unrep. All of the rest of the times I was either in the engineroom or engineering central control.

Very nice indeed, for me it would have to be double the scale to build though.I'm too old and shaky.

Nice work on Wayne's T-2, Bob!

Incidentally, USMC Fallen Timbers (Maritime Commission Hull Number 803) was built at the Kaiser Swan Island Shipyard in Portland, Oregon, was launched on 21 April 1943 and completed in May of 1943.

There is a lot of information about the U.S. Maritime Commission T-2 tankers is available at T2 Tanker Page

Images of Fallen Timbers and its subsequent manifestations are at Fallen Timbers

A lot of T-2s were named after American battles. The Battle of Fallen Timbers was the last battle of the Northwest Indian Wars and was fought on 20 August 1794. Soldiers of the Legion of the United States (as the U.S. Regular Army was known at that time) commanded by General Anthony Wayne and the Kentucky Militia commanded by General Charles Scott defeated a combined force of Shawnee, Ottawa, and other Native American warriors near the Maumee River in Ohio. Fallen Timbers Battlefield and Fort Miamis National Historic Site (U.S. National Park Service)

I'm looking forward to your next build, Bob.

Don

Jim,

After this exercise the GPM small parts are big. I'll still hafta use magnifiers though.

Again, thank you for the gift.

Bob
