The Trumpeter USS Texas (BB-34) shows the ship in its last WWII configuration with the new gun directors and Mainmast setup.
During the D-Day action and off Cherbourg the configuration of the Mainmast and upper Foremast was different. The Mainmast had a 4 searchlight platform and then a small platform under the large SC-1 radar.
I've found a drawing of the Mainmast circa 1942 and late 1944, but can't seem to find one for the late 1943 - Fall 1944 period so I can get the layout and size of the Mainmast platforms
Anyone know where I might find an outline drawing of the 2 platforms?
Thanks
Mike
