And Tanker Builder, not sure I'd be interested as much in a 'How To' manual but I'd love to read your memoirs or just something on how modeling has changed thoughout the years as you've seen it.

The book about working on ARIZONA is entitled;

IN REPOSE - Diving on the USS Arizona with the National Park Service

It is available through Amazon, Pacific Historic Parks bookstore (at the Arizona Memorial and on line), or through me.

Incidently, if you acquire the book from any source outside of those three, you are getting a used book, not new.

While writing this I just remembered I was supposed to do something similar with the memoirs of my gramps from the times when he was a slave laborer in the WWII Germany... Would anyone want to read something like that?

I would certainly read it. Stories of ordinary individuals in great events are always fascinating. My grandfather was a taken prisoner by Italians in 1941 for "constantly making disrespect to Italian soldiers..." He also challenged an Italian colonel for a gunfight. These are all stories from ordinary people that do not make into the history books.

When I was stationed at Pearl Harbor, I used to have to stand 'duty' every five days. If it was a Friday or Saturday, I would intentionally take the 8pm to 12pm watch at night. The other people tried to avoid that one because that's when movie call went. I would stand that watch and then after, I'd go over to the dive locker and get my snorkle gear and go lobstering under the piers. 

You want to make points with the wife or girlfriend? Show up the next morning after your duty with lobster for breakfast!
