Problem with my camera's powerpack fixed, not sure how, but finally decided to charge.
Here we go. USS Intrepid 1944 built from the Trumpeter Yorktown (CV10) and the pontos upgrade, with a few extra aircraft.
Keel laying has been set for Saturday AGW WSNP.
will be keeping this thread updated, but I will put a lot more detail on a thread over in the main forum.
Looking forward to everyone's start up shots.
Looks like a fantastic amount of work there Simon. I don't know if I am equally mad but here is what I have committed myself to for the next year.
Also nice to see a Japanese carrier in there from Mark. Who's going to pop-up with a British flattop?
Anyway this in my flattop.
Merit's Enterprise CV6
The hull is nicely in one piece
but the detail looks quite heavy
Infini is the aftermarket provider for this kit
The deck is a self contained set
it includes a deck marking guide, rigging and three sheets of etch.
My airwing is slightly more restrained in that I thought I could only probably fit half of a 90 plane airwing on. The kit only comes with 5 each of the three types of aircraft.
And lastly I thought I would try a new brand of paint, Tru-Color. I will be interested to see how they go.
I won't start until June as I have a couple of other campaigns to finish so I will be a watcher in the meantime.
Good luck all,
