    Random USS Midway question...

    VS-21 never operated from MIDWAY (just US-3 COD hits and maybe a S-3 came onboard delivering the ATO during the Gulf War). VS-21 came over full time to Japan after MIDWAY and INDY crossdecked and INDY/CV-62 became the forward deployed carrier in Japan. VS-21 stayed a part of the Japan based CVW-5 until the unit disbanded in 2005. Reason no S-3’s stationed on older CV’s was size (tail fin height and fully spread wing). Collin VS-21 1995-1999 USS Independence and USS Kitty Hawk.

    Your camo airbrush work is really the stand out in this build IMO. It was enjoyable to follow along. Well done Cheers Collin

    VS-35 (Tail 700) already had the ASW demod done. Cover the holes, no MAD boom. Collin

    Opinions on Kitty Hawk 1/48 AH-1Z please.

    Take your time and beware the very tiny and fragile parts and it builds up pretty nice. Throw a little nose weight in there so she sits correctly on her skids. Cheers Collin
  6. Planning an in flight model of the two stage HK Kit. So looking to see if anyone is willing to part with the two seated crew members? Cheers Collin

    F/A-18C loadout help

    To my eye it’s a ROCKEYE, but technicall I think it’s a CBU-100 with a FMU-140 fuze. In 1/48, I would just take a ROCKEYE and remove the old MK339 fuze off of the nose and make/scratchbuild the flatter/larger -140 nose fuze. Cheers Collin

    1/32 Lockheed S-3B Viking - scratchbuilt

    Been a pleasure watching this build, results are just stunning and a testament to your skill. Just checked my logbook, this jet showed up after I left the squadron, but I flew a sister aircraft not far off the assembly line a lot. Cheers Collin
