Mike - many thanks for taking a look and for your comment. I started work on the rigging and realized I'm missing one turnbuckle. Another modeler mentioned the same problem with his kit. I sent a request for the missing part to Lindberg but I doubt if they will send me the missing part. Delay of Game - 15 Yard penalty !!! LOLBeautiful work, great looking model.
The real South Goodwin was towed to her position , Goodwin Sands the Great ship shallower. If you went aground there you lucky to get off.JPC - thanks and I'm looking forward to working on this kit. I looked up information on the South Goodwin lightship model and it was issued with having no propeller. I cannot find information as to whether the real vessel was 'towed' to it's position or was able to sail under it's on power ( thus, it would be in need of a propeller).
I have looked at pictures of the Nantucket LV-112 while she was in drydock in 2011. Her keel lines look similar to what is portrayed by Lindberg on my kit. I noticed that the model hull is missing a few holes just above the water line ( I presume these are drain holes for the bilge ). I will mark them on my hull to be drilled open.
