I'm STILL PSRing the fuselage!  :banghead:

Work will come to a halt now till Sunday night as I'll be away prior to the Coventry Show then. Hopefully the trolley parts will dig themselves out by then, I certainly can't find the blasted things!

Outstanding!  :thumbsup:

I like the little dudes all over the deck, something you rarely see on carrier models.

And what scale is it please?

1/700

I saw the tiny dudes on 3dmodelparts.com and I decided to try it out.

Weaver, I suggest that we forgo the Battleship, and instead go with these Cruiser "subclasses":

Battlecruiser: Strictly a warship, big guns and/or missiles and all.

Exploration/Scout Cruiser: Well armed, but science and scouting is it's main mission.

Patrol Cruiser: Well armed, but meant to be a colonial defense/law enforcement flagship.

There's precious few airplanes which don't look good in US Navy Blue.

And the Whirlwind is definitely not one of those.

Damn but, that looks good.  It also looks right!

The fuel carrying problem was looked at in real life. Freightdog does a conversion (I think) of the extended under belly tank which goes as far forward as the nose wheel bay (and half way through it too IIRC). I think it's part of another variant that was planned.

Nice idea. I have thought about this.  Will have to scratchbuild though, as I work in 1/48.

Had a look at freightdog's website and don't seem to be able to find what I thought was there, maybe I was reading an article in a book or something. I'll have a route around and see if I can find it.

Freightdog do an FGA conversion set for a proposed Ground Attack project. Is it possible that you saw that and got confused with a project in a book or something?
