I cancelled my pre-order for the Merit 1/200 Hornet and I will pre order it from Freetime Hobbies. I have no details on what time frame or expected due date. I am sure we will hear more in the next few months.

I just bought Minicraft's PBM-5A at Hobby Lobby. The Enterprise has been my favorite ship from WWII since I read "The Big E" in the late '50s. Hey, what the Hell, one more that will end up in the stash.

I'd much rather have her sister ship "Yorktown", CV-5. She was the hard core of the Midway Battle fleet.
I've got Trumpeter's Hornet (CV-8) kit and a resin conversion for that project.

Is the resin for converting the Hornet to the E or do you have a bow hull replacement for the Hornet. I'd love to get my hands on a resin replacement bow for the 1/350 Hornet.

that anyone has had the guts to try to market a corection for Trumpy's messed up Hornet Hull! I've been looking at trying to do it with wood but I may chicken out and do it as a waterline model to get around the problem.
The conversion I have is for the Yorktown!
