    Carrier...... hmm, Annie says she would like to do one for this GB.
    A test catapult shot..... a CAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Would this qualify???
    Can't believe I am asking this. But we all do what the boss demands. Yes?

    Mine will be another chopper, SH-3A from HS-4 60's era, blue and international orange.

    If it was designed to fly from the deck of a flattop, it's in. I may have to start another kit before the Sea Vixen, parts are yet to be shipped from Roll. Thinking about a Vought SB2U Vindicator to fill the time.

    3 possibilities in the stash: Tamiya Corsair, Accurate Miniatures Avenger or another Eduard Hellcat.

    I'm thinking about either a Skua or a TBD.

    Yeah, I was leaning that way. Already did a Hellcat not too long ago and I figure that there might be more than a couple of Corsairs. I want to do an Atlantic scheme for the Avenger but have not seen anything too interesting. Suggestions welcome.

    Oh...debations, debations. Mk.XIV spitfire RCN, Hellcat, or Corsair. And then, near the bottom of my stash, long forgotten, this.

    A Scooter from the Bonnie Dick is my choice. Anyone have any thoughts or fears about this kit?

    Geo

    EDIT I agree with Bruce VB. Might persuade me to buy one.:p

    That is a great kit George. Built one way back, don't remember having any problems.

    Andy, I seem to recall a version of the atlantic scheme that was similar to the three-tone pacific scheme but with the blues replaced with two greys. I will try to see if I can find where I saw it.

    Atlantic Anti-Submarine Scheme I

    Dark Gull Grey, Light Gull Grey, Non-Spectacular White

    Makes for a rather handsome aircraft.

    Nice Bruce. Most I've seen have a white and gull gray scheme but that looks pretty nice.

    I believe that the judges weighed in on this earlier; If it was launched off of a ship it qualifies!

    I got the Hasagawa and the old Monogram, (rebox as Revell) in a thrift store, the F-8 I bought special for this GB. The F-8 is first, and then the others as time allows.

    Go the A-4 Geo!!! :)

    Considering a few different types.
    If I understand correctly that any aircraft is eligible if it was originally designed to be used on carriers, then there are a few land based options...(A6M2-K, RNZAF Buffalo or Seafire XV instructional airframe maybe...)

    I've got an F-14 for sure, and maybe a 1/32 Avenger or 1/48 Super Hornet, or 1/48 Firefly. Really not sure yet.

    Cheers pal! Wonder if it would be safe to do one '13' with the snake, or?

    Edit: Found this, use this as start, get the Serial # for the '13'...
