.............. and for me, this shot has always represented something of the twilight of the gods.......... the demise of the dreadnought.

Now that we have them all, we can get them all painted in time for Phase Two.

CV-2 Lexington
CV-3 Saratoga
CV-5 Yorktown
CV-6 Enterprise
CV-7 Wasp
CV-8 Hornet

USS Wasp. And I guess it's time to paint the TBF, too.







Nice work as usual from Hinchinbrooke Industries. Essex next, I guess.

Oh good, you got it.

That last shot shows you how small she was. Half a Yorktown............ or perhaps a quarter Yorktown, given her speed. No wonder she spent a lot of time ferrying aircraft.

She and Ranger were really not up to the task.

And yes, an Essex is next.

The SBD should arrive in a few days. B-25 is done needing mapping. B-24 starting after that. All ships off to paint. There are some things to be done but most of the pieces are in place. The Holidays are in the way right now.

That knife edge bow....hmmmm, and all forward main battery...hmmm....has a far east flavor. I bet she has a sister too. Simply gorgeous.

You are indeed correct, sir. Early days of course, but at least the main battery is done..................

Now for that blasted split/trunked funnel.
