Using a picture of the Catherine Olendorf at her launching in 1974.
On the picture I measure 70 mm from the bottom (somewhat obscured by trash)
to the water line. From the water line to the hawse pipe I get 48 mm.
This makes the waterline 59% (70/118) of the distance from the bottom to the pipe.
I will use this unless somebody comes up with a better answer.
cheers Jim

Hallo,

As the most SD14 ships has been build On the Tyne ( Area around New Castle ) shipyards you will have to look for one of the museums in that area. Might be this is the right one: Austin & Pickersgill Ltd, shipbuilders | The National Archives
A couple of years ago I bought copies of original ship building drwings from them. Including one with the painting scheme. If you don't succeed I can look up that drawing .

Thanks Gert but it is just a model, it doesn't need to be that perfect.
Measuring the photo is good enough for me.


The last of the side plates are on with the cutout. The plastic frames worked out
really well. They support the bilge plates and don't block the view very much.
The interior lights affect the transparency somewhat. The last pic shows the
frames in natural light.


The plastic material is terrific. It is 0.010 inch almost the same as the card which
is 0.011 inch. It can be cut, scored an bent just like the card.
Imagine the whole model made out of transparent material!
cheers Jim
