Re: Norman Bel Geddes
In 2013 at the SMSC Annapolis show, members visited both the Academy Museum and Carderock, and we saw their stored models, which included a lot of 1:1200 Comet, Bessarabis, South Salem and Framburg models.
The Academy’s models were stored in the basement where their restoration workshop is located.
A long time ago I heard that the U.S. Naval Academy Museum has an attic full of 1:1200 ID models. I heard a similar story at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division. It sounded like they had no use for them. My request to see them was denied.
