Carrier Air Wing 7 GB FEELER?
Posted by 68GT on Monday, January 02, 2017 4:16 PM

Anyone interested in a Carrier Air Wing 7 GB  (Air Group 7)?  Could be anything involved with the air wing (props, jets, choppers, ships).  I was thinking maybe 6 months for this one (start today and build to July 10).

  • Crossovers are good.
  • Already started can be ok as long as there is not much started.
  • Any time period.
  • Must have progress photos.

Engagements:

  •                        World War II    CAG-18
  •                        Korean War     CVG-7
  •                        Vietnam          CVW-7
  •                        Operation Desert Shield
  •                        Operation Desert Storm
  •                        Operation Deny Flight
  •                        Operation Southern Watch
  •                        Operation Enduring Freedom

Found a list of squadrons that served the air wing from 59-77.  http://www.ussindependencecv-62.org/gwf/vq1.html

Hi 68GT,

I'd be interested if I can do a USN pilot figure. Possibly Verlinden's Top Gun  bust or WW2 USN Fighter Pilot, Pacific Theatre.

Cheers

Tony

I'm just taking it one GB at a time.

Figures are fine also as long as you can somehow work a story into Air Wing 7.  I know in WWII CV-11 (Intrepid) spent time at the Marshalls, Philippines and Okinawa.

Pretty much unless you have something from WWII or Korean War.

Sorry, but from what I can see VF-112 was in Air Wing 11 and I dont see much on VF-781.  Maybe someone else with a better WWII and Koren War knowledge might be able to find something differently.  The early stuff is a bit confusing to me.

According to your link, Air Wing 7 was flying off the Bon Homme Richard in Korea.

Thanks, excellent info.  I knew at least  USS Bonhomme Richard but didn't know if there were others.

If this is a go, put me down for the Trumpeter 1/72 RA5-C Vigilante in RVAH-1 markings.  If time, Airfix's A-4B with Arma Hobby's A-4C conversion kit.

Any other takers?  I think I'm going to let this roll and maybe it will pick up speed as we go.

I'll add myself with a 1/48 TA-3B from VQ-1 "World Watchers" on the USS Independence.

I have a Scooter that works with this - box art markings for the 1/48 Vietnam Scooters kit (Hasegawa plastic).

I've been wanting to build it, so now is as good a time as any.

Should we let this roll or die?
