A Scratchbuild - 1/56th (28mm) RN Aircraft Carrier (Part 2)

Multiple projects, a number of shows, and (shock horror) real-life work committments have got in the way of updating my blog more regulalry, so here are some more photos of the carrier.

The central section is lacking the girders in the first photo - it was easier to paint the model first, before adding the final pieces.

First of the complement of aircraft - 4 Brewster Buffalos - they were being tested by the USN in 1938, and were carrier capable, so my force for VBCW were able to "acquire" some. Future models will include some Blackburn Skua divebombers, and hopefully one or two other colourful aircraft from the late 1930's.
