beautiful set of images has been sent to SEAWINGS from the files of
our regular correspondent, Bruce John Vander Mark, and originate from the
document 'Final Report on Service Acceptance Trials' of JRS-1 Bu. No.
as we all know is the military version of the civil S-43, and as such a
great many of the details shown here are common to both - a great help
when detailing the new Sword 1/72 scale kit. Note that some of the images
have details of minor component relocation written on them. Many thanks go to Bruce for
his generosity and his patience!
