Morning all and thanks Wildspear for pointing me to this forum!!! It is good to find a group with such a depth of knowledge in this area and so willing to share. I am amazed at all the questions already answered by just reviewing the posts on the site - a tremendous resource.
Yes as Wildspear noted above, my godfather was indeed Jack Coye's radar and Torpedo Data Computer (TDC) operator in WWII and he is the inspiration for this build. I am in the process of laying out my plan of attack, and gathering aftermarket details targeting Silversides cc 1944, I will dress her out in Measure 9. Many thanks to Wink, James, and Mario for the products they offer, these give hope of actually and successfully finishing my project with some level authenticity!! Was wondering if there are any inside the CT detailing out there, am planning some scratch work in this area if not available. Wildspear I tried to access your photo library on photobucket but it wants a password?? Nothing like photos to answer to all those detail questions!!
