Lake Michigan Recoveries
Posted by ps1scw on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 4:26 PM

With all the SBD's and Wildcats among others being pulled out of Lake Michigan in recent years I think it is way overdue to have a proper 1/350 Scale or larger USS Sable and USS Wolverine on the market.  I'd surely purchase one.

That’s where the F4F on display at O’Hare came from.

In the Naval Aviation Museum at Pensacola NAS. The way the room is lit gives the impression of being under water. One of my bucket list items is to do a trap onto a carrier and depart.

OK. On the bench:

Otaki F6F-3 Hellcat, Revell/Monogram F6F-5 Hellcat

Hobby Craft P-36A, ESCi/ERTL P-36A

Is that right? I love gawking at that aircraft when I'm in that end of the airport, had no idea....

There is a 1:700 scale version available from Blue Ridge Hobbies. Resin, brass, wood.   Check with Freetime Hobbies for price and availability

Me too- I'll buy one!  I have found drawings but the girder framework supporting the flight deck would take a lot of PE, and PE making for me is a load of work. 

I am looking at using a Cricut machine to generate vinyl masks that would act as resist, but the resolution will not be as good as the photo method, so don't know if it will work for one of those carriers.  Maybe I'd build it in a larger scale where I wouldn't need as much resolution with the PE.
