Re: Thanks Rick, you are always so generous in sharing your knowledge...
Yes he is a wealth of information that he shares with us. If it's destroyers Rick "is da man"! Tin cans forever!!!!!
...expertise, and the fruits of your research.
But, I would have to dig them out ... here is one from 1941.
Up to more recently.
...with ships undergoing repair/maintenance?
I received this kit today, and it's a great little model. The detail is really fine and restrained, and the molding is sharp and clean. It comes with lots of hull blocks, PE for the crane, and a nice booklet with photos that depict the history of the dry dock. Finally, it comes with the hull bottom for the Snowman Gearing kit.
It depicts the dry dock in her post-WW2 appearance--after it had been extended some. To depict it in its WW2 appearance you would have to remove a section of the dry dock with a razor saw--but my initial impression is that this would be very doable, as I believe that the added-on section is clearly demarcated.
And this would be a really interesting diorama: USS Hambleton in two pieces undergoing repair in the dry dock, after her torpedoing in North Africa: https://www.reddit.com/r/drydockporn/comments/5953kp/the_torpedoed_us_navy_destroyer_uss_hambleton/
