Amazing details! Well beyond my patience. Is this a part of a larger project going on?

A number RVN scans from hundreds yet to be done:

Nice assortment, and well done........please, please, please tell me those are 1/350 and not 1/700.   Either scale would drive me bat house crazy.

I just started building the airwing for my Tamiya 1:350 Enterprise build.

Damn, that's going to take me as long as buiding the boat!

Going to be a mixed bag of aircraft.

Trumpeter aircraft on the roof, and the aicrcraft supplied with the kit in the hangar bay.

On the Workbench:

Tamiya 1:350 USS Enterprise (CVN-65)

Kinetic 1:48 C-2A(R) Greyhound

Kitty Hawk 1:32 T-28B

Are those Trumpeter aircraft?

I'm trying to figure out how to do the wing fold for the aircraft. Haven't been able to find anything on the internet or you tube about it.

 Lots of Enterprise build sites , but not a whole lot of info on the Trupeter 1:350 air group models.

Man, those things are small!

Trumpeter 1/700. So, wingfold involves some swipe along the fold lines with a photo-etch saw, then just 'snap' it off. And in the case of hornets, just score the lower wing with a blade then simply 'fold' it up. Glue not even needed.

Don't take it wrong, but your screen name should be Blind Eagle.....I know I would be after doing all of those in 1/700. Smile
