These might be helpful. For the S-3 you are doing, 6 point tie down would be accurate.



don't pay attention to the T-45, the drawing shows the distance between padeye's.

Outstanding!!! I'll be using the 6 point tie down, and the deck picture is what I was lost on.

if you go to this page and scroll down, you will find an accurate Nimitz class tiedown pattern, and a set of photo etch that lets you build the chain ends

http://www.djparkins.com/acatalog/1_...O_Russian.html

edit: the parts are also available in 1/32 http://www.djparkins.com/acatalog/Gu..._USAF_USN.html

and in "wrong scale" LOL http://www.djparkins.com/acatalog/1_...O_Russian.html

Sorry, didn't see this until now, here is a page for the tie down chains. The TD-1A is the most common chains used, the -1B was rarely used and squadrons only had a few of them for use when the -1A wasn't long enough to reach a padeye when the aircraft was parked in certain spots on the flight deck.

Here's some more info

If you google "td-1a tie down chain" you will lots of info.

If you are "putting it to bed" you will need to put 12 chains on it, heavy weather would be 21.

Yes, the only time a bird was not chained was when it was being actively moved with a tractor, if the tractor had to "sit" for a little bit we would throw 6 chains on it until the plane was once again ready to be moved.

If the plane was going up or down on the elevator, it would have at least six chains on it, depending on weather conditions, if it was parked on the elevator and was just "riding" the elevator it would have 9 to 12 chains, depending on the aircraft status.
