I would like to see who has models of navy ship built during the years 1950 through 1980. Do any of you out there know of any?

To make sure the Neosho class oilers are recognized it may be better to create a model of the ship and place a display in an existing museum. Two museum curators have already agreed the subject is worth while. View a new web page depicting the use of a model. Perhaps interest will be great enough to save an actual 143 class oiler before it is scrapped. http://navy.memorieshop.com/Model/Oilers.ht

Since joining the Navy League a different idea has come along. Most of the old navy base here on Lake Washington has been sold to the City of Seattle and is a public park. The buildings will be used for housing. To remember the navy, perhaps only the working deck of an oiler need be placed to make the public aware of navy ship support activity.

Maritime Museum Survey points out that the West Coast only has 18% of all U.S. museums with the Northwest having 4%. That is a shame with Seattle being the "Number 2 Goal" for places to vacation. See: http://navy.memorieshop.com/Museums.html
