HMS Eagle

Pretty much OOB, and I'm going to use all of the air wing because I like a cluttered deck.

Cleaning up the Sea Furies and the Wessex rotors

Excited to see this.  Perfect with Suez markings  ;)

Wish most ship kits came with more aircraft. Aftermarket can get pricey.

For sure it's defo a nice little collection of aircraft ! I wish I hadn't glued the wings on the Sea Furies now, be easier to stripe them.

And as a bonus, painting the blue on the wee Wessex kits has spurred me to get out a 72nd scale Italeri HAS.3. I love the look and colour combo on that chopper.
