This would make a great diorama I think....



Too bad the only 'decent' dash-4 kit in 72 is the HobbyBoss easy kit, which it
would be nigh impossible to fold the wings on.

Given the various snow effects available now a diorama of the scene could be achieved quite easy enoughGary

A cool pic, indeed. My Great Uncle was aboard then. IIRC, that photo is in his cruise book.

Nice. The Corsair is far from the only nifty a/c in the pic, IMHO n/t

A former boss of mine was on-board the Valley Forge during Korea and described this exact scene to me! He was 18 years old and among other duties, was a fuel handler.

Valley Forge spent 25 months in four cruises, and earned 8 battle stars for Korea

but was too tired to edit. This picture came up under an image search for dash-4's.
Same sentiment applies to wanting a decent and nicely priced dash-5 and AU-1; sadly, there are no good ones out there (Italeri's examples have too many issues).

What was your boss's name? My Uncle was there also and was a PC(Plane Captain)in VF-653(I think.). A possiblity that they may have known each other. My Uncle would love it if there's a chance of getting in touch with an old shipmate.
