Hey guys,

I just got the old Revell USS Aaron Ward (John Steel artwork box). I want to build the USS Ward. Of course the 4" deck guns are a little crude. I want to scratch build the guns. Does anyone have any drawings or referencs of the pre war 4" deck guns?

Thanks, Kenny

Hey Gator!
I'm sorry mate, I have nothing to help you with...just looked through all of my reference books and files that might contain a pic or two...but one of our mates here at MSW that immediately comes to my mind that may be able to help you is Al Ross. If he doesn't pick up on the thread, Bro, I'd give him a holler. I'm gonna still keep searching around the web too...
Later Gator!
