Looking for HMAS Adelaide FFG

Postby Raverdave » Mon Nov 25, 2013 3:11 pm

Hello all,


I am looking for some picture of HMAS Adelaide FFG on or around her commissioning date for a build that I am doing.

Cheers

I have a set of three close up on the port side that I took in 1988. Not sure if she had any modification by then. If they are good for the period you want, PM me with an email adress and I will forward them. They are too big for here and the PM won't allow me to post JPG.

HI guys. If you have photos from 1988 that would be after modifications were done. She was modified in around 83 where her stern was lengthened and the CIWS etc fitted. I joined her in 90 and she had all her new gear.

Thanks Russ, I wasn't really sure if she had been modified by then. I was mainly CVS/DDG/Amphib, not much to do with the FFG world. Good to know when I get around to doing one.

I can do March 1988 when she visited Port Adelaide prior to a 12 month refit.

Cheers,

Thanks BJ, got some pics already, but happy to have a look at what you have, I am really after pics from as close to her commissioning day as possible before she was modified.

^yup 'surfsup'

-thats right, a 'short' FFG with no CIWS (and the chip frier in the galley)

(Phalanx CIWS was installed in about '83, RAST stern refitt began in mid '87 with Sydney, VLS refitted in '02 [also Sydney])

1/350 USS Enterprise CVN-65 (2008 refit) @ 60%
