    Attaching a wire can certainly be done but at such a small scale, it may quiet noticeable and look contrived

    Quick update, no photos. Bit more work on the base, but not much, just to make the ocean colour a little more green.

    Have built but not painted a total of 11 a/c, 6 Furies and 5 Fireflies. Currently trying to work out how to paint them. A bit tricky.


    things I'm considering are to build a cuple more a/c with wings folded, I also am tossing up whether to have the elevator up or down. There are some risks with having it down, mostly loss of strength for the hull, but it would be cool I think to have an aircraft using the elevator...


    Anyway, for now I'm pre-occupied getting my CAG painted and sorted....

    finally have my CAG just about finished.

    I will have to put this build aside for a while, whilst I get started on my Vietnam GB

    Building these little planes was challenging . The decals didn't want to stick, so I finished up using a form of glue to keep them from lifting. the decals are strong, but the adhesive really sucked.....


    Anyway, for better or worse here is my (nearly) completed CAG for the carrier

    With the thumb. I imagine there will be lots of little aircraft making traps once you're finished
