David Gatt's Ship Pics on CD-ROM
You have seen some of David Gatt's work in the Gallery, and probably visited his website. Now he has made those images and more available on CD. Set up much like his website there are several individual gallery pages with a number of clear high resolution photo's suitable for viewing or printing. Note the images I have included here are formatted for faster web viewing. Loading the images off the CD-ROM allows for viewing large files without falling asleep waiting on the images to download online. 
USS Antietim A Ticonderoga class Cruiser visited in Melbourne in 1998. 20 separate images from all over the ship are in this gallery. 
USS Benfold 18 images of this Arliegh Burke Class destroyer visited in Melbourne in April 2001

Burkes on Deck 75 on deck pics of the USS Benfold and USS Russell. These pictures show all parts of the ship and are invaluable to the detail freak.

USS Carl Vinson  David walked all over this ship to get about 36 pics taken in 1996 while the carrier was in Hobart Australia.

Pier side Video
Video taken of USS John Paul Jones. This amazing video was taken by a modeler who knows what other modelers want to see. Dave pans all over the ship paying special attention to the little details such as radar aerials and all those deck fittings that you've always wondered about. You might have to download Apple Quicklime unless you already have a movie viewer on your computer. This movie runs for over 7 minutes and it alone is worth the price of the CD.
How did I do that?
A PDF Info page on how David did the decks and some other details on his ship models. I wish this was had more info in this section as looking through the four modeling galleries I can think of many more questions.
