I received the DVD today, went through all the photos, and came away disappointed. The 150+ images are all scans from books and include scans of The Floating Drydock's camouflage pages, several of Jeff Davidson's CAD drawings, and other often-seen photos. Really, I found nothing new here. Aside from that, there is no organization on the disk by boat type, armament, camouflage, or theater. The content is mixed up and appears on the disk apparently in the order the scans were made.

Too bad, really, since the person producing the DVD is well-known Canadian modeler Ray Bean, who has produced some outstanding dioramas and in that segment of the hobby, at least, is very talented.

Cheers!

Thank you for the head's-up Bob. Ray didn't ask for permission and I'm surprised he'd do that. Is my copyright text info still there?

Looks like I have to eat my words, Jeff, at least insofar as your CAD images go. When I perused the disk yesterday at least three of your CAD renderings came up, but upon checking today I don't see any. I looked at the images as a List, Extra Large Icons, and Large Icons and don't see them anymore, so I have to assume my laptop cross-linked to your site somehow.

I also saw several of Dick Washichek's cut-away drawings but they're not on the disk, so I have to believe my laptop is becoming over-excited by the approaching holidays.........grin.

Ray Bean's website is, for anyone with the interest, this:

I owe Ray an apology, but I still can't recommend this DVD, sorry.

Cheers!
