The 325 was equiped with the 'Broady' (spelling) recovery system. Is there any old LST sailor that has good pictures or drawings of this assembly? I am building an LST to scale (1:160)and would like to add this "Different" feature.

Addition: I plan to build an LST 325 rigged with the Brodie system. If I get it done in time it will come with me when I visit her. The ship will be 24 1/2" long at a scale of 1:160. Still working on drawings to make this system look correct.
I already have a 11 plane 'squadron' of the L3/L4 observation plans built. Eight aircraft for the LST with a Flight Deck and the rest to show with the Brodie system.
Pictures do not post here so send an email if you want a peak.
