Well, blurry focus is in my favor but I do of course thank you very much! I look forward to the decals setting it off further too. Maybe soon we can wrap this "quick diversion"?

I have Trumpeter's 1/350 Yorktown (Essex class) that I'll finish up someday. And when I do, I'll be doing its air wing Duck Style!

I also have some WWII era carriers and have seen what I believe to be available in PE additions. That's what surprised me about the more 'modern era' airwing- so many more choices and available pieces? I've yet to start any of my WWII carriers though and would be eager to see you attack yours! I'm sure you would do more than "justice" to them!

Al,
Ah, first hand, er "head" experience? OUCH! Your pics so far are great and I can only hope for more! Thanks for your efforts.

Tom,
"Pointers", um yeah, get all the optical aids you can! Hey, don't you recall, you were the one who named the 'illustrating pen' brand and names to me from your 1/720th carrier build! Before that I had heard of them and somehow never found them. But knowing exactly what to look for it turned out Hobby Lobby had them all along in the ,,,,tada,,,,drafting section! Yeah, like you need "pointers".

Talk about polishing a turd.

Danm Duck, what's next? Something assembled with a binocular microscope?

Well I do have a "heavy hand" when it comes to thinning stuff out so I'll probably destroy a few in the process! Would like to not go that route though
Glad to hear you "found" your technical pen...I find them pretty handy for those spots a brush just won't cut it

Surprisingly this "lil" plane built up pretty simply and straightforward except for the canopy, at the risk of repeating myself. I "toasted" one trying to hog it out enough to allow the interior to fit within it? Of course there was no mention of that in the instructions. Actually the instructions were kinda woeful on the PE placement and some reference shots were essential and I only hope most of it wound up in the right places?

There's something oddly enticing about 'going small' just as 'building big' is awesome in it's own right?

Thanks for your kind words my fellow modeling maniac!

The hull's together, the flight deck's laying on it, and the two main halves of the island's together and sitting in place.

However comma

It'll be Fall 2009 at the earliest before I continue with it tho

I just wish Trumpeter would do some IJN stuff..........

Amen to opening up Trumpeter to the IJN fleet! There is such a wealth of subjects there and even though some have been covered Trumpeter has not shied away from doing similar if not the same subjects in the past as others? Right now Trumpeter is introducing the largest number of new warships of anyone out there and IMHO they keep getting better at what they do. They also bring them in at a reasonable and sometimes even comparitively inexpensive pricepoint!
Now if you happen to bump up your build schedule on that carrier it would be just fine by me!

Actually, yes, to all of the above! You don't even have to dare me because I already noticed those things but just didn't want to take the time this go around. I've got around eighty more various A/C to do for the airwing so there will be some variety!

Love to see your EA6B and thanks!
