Hi, has anyone else seen the 1/72 carriers on ARC, they look ace.
Do we have enough room do to a mini carrier for the Nats ?, as a display for the navy aircraft we are doing.

Cool idea. The whildest example I've seen of something like that was the Shearwater Aviation Museum. They have a 1/48 scale model of the HMCS Bonaventure. It was originally built as a float for Natal Day parades, but a builder there detailed it and added a bunch of Testors Banshees and stuff. Very neat!

Hey, fun stuff! Sure beats out my 1/700 battlegroup. I'd love to build an LHA in 1/72 someday, with all the birds and armor and LCACs, but space is at a premium, and time doubly so.

In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.


Great model.   I'm actually toying with idea of a shelve mock up of a carrier for all of my RCN stuff.   "Buccaneers on the Bonnie"

Thankks for sharing the pic and idea  :)

I invite all and any criticism, except about Eric The Dog, it's not his fault he's stupid

Bragging time! If you ogled that Fairey Swordfish they have then know this; My father is the person who got that engine back to flying condition!  ^_^
