USS Forestal CV-59


Revell styrene injection kit. Adequately molded and detailed. Acceptable fit and accuracy. The problems encountered included already assembled parts interfering with the deck placement. There were also parts on the trees not in the instructions and vice versa. THe planes were fun to paint. I did find myself imagining what it would be like to take off and land on that deck more than once. Acrylic color applied with Parafilm masking. The base is pine supporting the stock saw horse stands.

This was the first naval build-up for this client. He also commissioned the Seawolf
