and ready to get underway.

It's finally finished. Put the finishing touches onto the aircraft, the last of the few details on the boat, and it is finished. Not an easy project, but most rewarding as I know there's not a ton of them out there.

Just a quick recap, the only parts used from the kit are the hull and PE deck supports and railings. The deck, aircraft, boats, davits and cranes, hangar deck details were all scratchbuilt, and Le Arsenal, White Ensign and Gold Medal bits rounded out the rest of it. Rather than ramble on, I'll let the pictures do the talking.

OK not sure what happened to the white balance on this one. It was not that blue when I uploaded it.

Hope you enjoyed. The pictures were shot with a Nikon D7000 set to Aperture priority, stopped down to f25, ISO set at 1250 and a shutter speed of half a second, all done on a tripod.

Cheers
Mike

Seriously, guy, great job, and on a kit that didn't deserve it. Good thing the ship did.

Or he is green with envy. This would be a worthy addition to the Naval Air Museum. It is a tribute to a proud and gallant ship that did not survive the dark period of war in a far-away place after Pearl Harbor. She was one of the "rugged, ragged warriors". It is a truly beautiful piece of work. Adios, Larry.

Field Artillery brings dignity to what otherwise might be merely a vulgar brawl.
