Hello didit - Dave
I thank you very much for all of this great information you are sharing with me and my Ship Mates. Is it possible that you could post some or even all of those pictures out of Harolds Hahn's archives, I am sure that they would be of great interest to me along with very many helpful hints and ideas that would help me and also many of my Ship Mates who are pondering a POF build, ENJOY.
Regards Lawrence

yes I could post images on the Oliver Cromwell

here is the thing when Harold Hahn passed away I was given his library which in volume filled a pickup truck twice. I spent 3 months going through the material and scanning the material and it was to go into a on line Hahn library on the Navy Board Model site. The archive was started but came to a halt because it was only one person doing a massive amount to work. I did not even finish the scanning of the material.
The people involved in the Hahn library decided putting the material on any forum it would in time just get lost among hundreds if not thousands of posts and subjects. So this is why it was thought best to have a dedicated library of Hahn's work.
What I posted here is about 1/2 of the Oliver Cromwell material.

Hi Dave, Where will the dedicated library be, was very interested in the concept of the original postings on the NBM site, understand fully the amount of work you had to do with very little help, I still think it should be on a site MAYBE GETTING HELP FROM SOME ONE AS A RESEARCHER/ AND LIBRARAN for the NBM SITE, you and I have had discussions on this before to bad the people we had thought were going to do this deserted us, but some qualified people are still there if we ask, maybe some international member could step up and do this it would really help the site overall as well, maybe the works are not as well known internationaly as it should be, PM ME FOIR MORE DISCUSSION DO NOT WANT TO HOG UP THIS THREAD.
