JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week for my photos, my newly completed model of a US Navy Pegasus Class hydrofoil.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.





I just completed this model of a 1/200 scale US Navy Pegasus Class hydrofoil. The Navy retired all of six of these in the mid 1990's.
