Here is my latest ship model.
It is the 1/350th Trumpeter, Essex Class Carrier, completed as
the USS Hornet CV-12, 1944.
The model is painted with Floquil Marine colors in the Measure 33/3A
paint scheme, of Navy Blue (5-N), Haze Gray (5-H) and Pale Gray
It carries a complete air group on board, a total of 92 planes. 40
F6F's, 33 SB2C's and 19 TBF's / TBM's.
The Hanger Bay is detailed with overhead bracing and bulkhead
I used 3 different photoetch sets to detail this model. Gold Medal
Models, White Ensign and Tom's.
I had a lot of fun building this model with the worst part
assembling, detailing and painting the 92 aircraft. I spent more
time doing this then actually working on the ship.
