btw....that's the elevator and interior walls of the hangar, and to port is the bow flight deck..........with blast shield and elevator........to the stbd. of that is the fo'csle and aft flight deck......featuring a land-and-roll-down-ramp into the hangar..........the CIWS Phalanyx are on little bogies that are wheeled out of the hangar when the ship is surfaced.

And here's one of our new  Grand Banks Class Patrol Carriers.........HMCS Joe Batt's Arm.

It started life as one of those 2 dollar Hobby Model Enterprise hulls, with a completely new deck and superstructure. Lots of fun !

Originally, four were procured by the RCN to protect CDN interests off the East Coast of NF and NS. Eventually, over thirty were deployed to protect our interests in the North Sea, the former US Gulf Coast, as well as Nigerian waters.

The main brunt carried by these small carriers was the surprise resistence put up by the French over St.Pierre & Miquelon.

SHARs and Lynx standard, as well as support for Merlins and Cougar Helicopters Inc. fleet

which suddenly go off as they're being wheeled back in due to the proximity/movement detector on their built-in radar, firing through the bulkheads.  :P

The Phalanx begin to fire: BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAP! PINGPINGPINGPINGPINGPINGPINGPINGPING!

Yes, the Texans would notice, and that's all that matters.  You've never pissed off a Texan...have you?..... <_<

Let's just say this:  IN--VA--SION! (homage to 1942!) :ph34r:

Coooooooooooooooool bwoats, dere!

I like all the shavings (?) next to the model: gives the workbench that crazy "just another minute and then I'll finally go to bed" look!

Keep the in-progress pics coming!

Glad you like 'em, boys !

And yes, I'll share more pics as I go along. If I hadn't been called in to work tomorrow, I'd be sipping a Lager, and working away at them right now !

And that chopper is too big for that deck...I'm still awaiting my Lynx'
