Re: Drawings of Brodie rig aircraft recovery system
This doesn't have anything to do with the Brodie rig system but does with WW2 LST's.
To unload the main deck to lower deck on the early LST's used an elevator . When LST 542 was built this was replaced by the main deck by
having a lowerable ramp. The elevator was located between the exhaust vents near the bow ,the ramp was located near the bow behind AA guns . Perhaps this could be used for diaorama idea. On the models photos where they show the
inside tank deck with vehicles the upper deck is next to it and you can see the rectanglar shape of what would be the ramp in the front.
AFV Club is showing sprues of a new 1:350 scale LST at theIPMS NATS. Looks very good 3-piece hull (port, stbd, bottom). Hull shows oil canning. This will be a good starting point for many options.
I was talking to Richard Harden of Toms regarding aftermarket options. He doesn’t see a lot in the kit for him, but he could possibly be talked into doing a fret which would contain Brodie rig
We were looking at pix on the web, so do not need them
