Project 'In the Navy': 1/1200 Aircraft

This is the Revell 1/1200 USS Enterprise kit. It has 21 fighter planes to put on the two decks. Hint: you won't find any on this shot... well, maybe one.

Instead of fixing the planes on the carrier I put some GS on coins, painted them blue and glued the aircraft via their little pegs which would otherwise fit in the small holes in the Enterprise's deck.

With one added to the elevator on the Enterprise I have 20 small planes to go with my ships.

Fleet Green and Fleet Grey will have their air fleets too, respectively.

    1. As a famous Russian ace once put: YPAAAA.
      Then he crashed.

  2. Clever way to group your aircraft. Should work fine.

  3. Looks great - it may well motivate me to build my own 'Enterprise' recently acquired (with perhaps eight or ten aircraft). I hadn't thought of mounting them in quite the manner you have (which looks great for torpedo bombers!), but it looks pretty effective...

    1. Thank you. To my knowledge the Revell Iowa model has bombers too.

  4. That's a nice looking ship and a good idea for basing the aircraft.

  5. Very well executed basing of the planes, Andras.
