I have an S models plastic Gambier Bay fresh from China. I will review it this month. First comments: Hard to get - even for an experienced Chinese modeller resident in China, a bit underscale.


I see, so it is going to be one of those quest kits where getting your hands on one may be even more rewarding and fulfilling than actually building the kit! ;)

Thanks Lester, I will look forward to your review!

They were drilled and fit over threaded studs welded to the steel deck beneath. A nut was tightened over the stud and then a wooden plug inserted on the top to seal it all in.

Does anyone know equipment locations in the gallery deck catwalks of Bogue class CVE's? Equipment such as aircraft fuel stations, fire hoses, life rings, ect... . I know that there were 2 fire plugs on the flight deck and 14 on the gallery deck but I don't know where.
