US Navy Group Build

Recommended Posts

The FJ-3 is IMHO an interesting type and it's a pity no kit has ever been done in plastic of this version.

I could be wrong, but didn't Esci do one in 1/48? Seems to have been a bit of a dog, but this thread on ARC might give a few pointers.

The Esci kit was not really a Fury but more of a Sabre with some Fury bits. Interestingly the box pretended to represent both the FJ-2 and the FJ-3 but these versions are quite different. The decals might be useful though !

Mine will be 1/72 however, so most decals will have to be made from scratch.

An FJ-2 would also be interesting as many of these served in overall aluminium paint, a very unusual scheme for a US carrierborne aircraft.. however they were all USMC aircrafts, so not strictly USN.

I'm in, I did say Marine in the last thread but the excitment got the better of me and I meant Navy! I have a few things in the stash to open... but I'm toying with the idea of a US Navy C-20 Gulfstream, 72nd vacform.

All being well, I'll try to work it so I have no other builds on the go, and may drop in a Neptune aswell as the C-20!

Type & markings can be decided closer the date.

Well, not knowing what a Lloyd is, if I can complete a battleship in 2 weeks recently, then I might be able to do a carrier in 3 months, if I knuckle down and keep on the project. :analintruder:

This sounds very interesting but I dont know if I'll be alive by then, after all, according to the Myan calender, we are supposed to be going through a polar shift and all of us will be flung off into space. :shutup: Ill check back in if by chance that doesnt happen. :whistle:

Cheers

Paul :sleeping:

Either 1/48 or 1/72 Skyraider (Spad!) or maybe 1/48 Avenger - not decided just yet! But then I've got one or two 1/48 jets to have a go at - hmm!
