Hi Gary:
Here's a link to an offsite Kidd build:

Hope that helps!

P.S. You're welcome Gary - Sorry, forgot about Dave's build on WMU.
Here's a couple bilge keel links:

David, If I may ask, what did you build the bilge keels out of? If you remember how far off of hull center line are they?

Hi ALL,  Building USS KIDD, have a novice question, Which way is prop rotation? Port turns to left? Starboard to right? Looking from stern.
