Detail differences between ships in a class
Posted by Jim Davis on 7/12/2017, 11:56 am
Like many of you, I can be obsessive that a model I buy be an accurate replica of a particular ship. This then leads me to a question.... take the WWII USN CV-5, CV-6, and CV-8. All members of the same class. Yet, there were a number of differences between them, especially wrt their superstructures. Surely the builders were using plans, accurate copies of which could be made and disseminated to the respective building crews. So HOW do these variations come to take place? I can see how members of a class built over a long stretch of time could differ (the Burkes being an example) because later ships could be modified to exploit lessons learned with earlier sisters. But when they're all building at the same time? Do builders just take liberty with plans? Surely not... surely someone has to suggest a change, have a reason for it, and get it approved. Does anyone know?
