HMS Eagle 1:700 Fujimi

Recommended Posts

Greetings

I bought this kit several years ago and didn't progress past the flight deck for years until resurrected earlier in the spring. She is almost finished, just a little rigging and an Air Arm required. She will get some Venoms, seahawks and Whirlwinds in due course. Straight from the box with PE from Gold Medal Models generic UK carrier set. Very nice set of PE. The supplied air wing of Sea fires, Gannets and Wessex were quickly confind to the spare box! The colour instructions were in black and white and also Japanese so took my references from an Ark Royal cut away supplied by Navy News which was a great help and used a bit of imagination. The Green is a Fiat green from Halfords and the other paint was from Humbrol

Enjoy

Cheers now

Bob

Congrats! And just a little question - where can you get the 1/700 Sea Venoms and Seahawks from?

The Fujimi idea of mixing the 1950 Seafires (retired from FAA before the Eagle commission) and Sea Furies (also never used operationally from the Eagle deck) with the 1960s Wessex and Gannets is totally crazy.

Cheers

White Ensign have an extensive range of 1/700 a/c including Seahawks and Sea Venoms. 

I regret to say - cannot find anything in 1/700 neither at WEM site nor at the Sovereign Hobbies :(

Cheers

Hmmm, it appears the 'new' White Ensign doesn't make those any more.....  a shame, as they had some useful stuff in their 1/700 range.
