There are several new photo sets posted recently, among them two sets from SC 143, and some crew photos from SC 258.
Also, for those of you who are working on, or considering building, a chaser model, there are some notes posted on chain sizing for the anchor chain.
Hope everyone is enjoying the winter. Up in Maine the wind is howling, and the forecast is for snow.

Phil Pomber, grandson of SC 143 crewman Clyde Campbell Thomas, recently submitted a number of photos from the service of SC 143.
Several of these can be seen on the SC 143 Hull Number Photo Set page, and others in a Crew Photos page.
You may recall that SC 143 was the boat on which Ens. Alexander Moffat, author of Maverick Navy, served. Note the photo showing a star painted on the bow.
Howard Gould, crewman on SC 258, is show in this photos set, submitted by Robert Chesbro. See also a photo of chasers including SC 258, here.
It can be tricky to depict in a chaser model some of the finer details in the equipment and features. Jack Hudock offers some notes on sizing of the anchor chain, in a page added to the pages on improving the Glencoe model.
