Posted by Robthebuilder on Saturday, November 03, 2018 4:36 PM

I built Glencoe's USS OREGON as a kid and had one in the closet to build . Haven't built a ship in a while but have been working with some Scy-fi and armor . My question is; Anchors and anchor chains . Does anyone know link size , not just links per inck ? An opinion on anchor too would help . Any help would be most appreciated . Thanks folks .

Rob,

Here are links to a number of add one for the Oregon. I’m including PE, wood decks, barrels as well as chains. 

Personally, I don’t worry if the links aren’t a perfect match as long as they look right. 

So, for metal replacement barrels:

For a wooden deck:

For chain:

For PE: Tom’s Modelworks makes a photo-etch set for the Oregon and you can order it straight from them.

I hopes this helps,

Steve
