I'm surprised this thread doesn't exist yet.

I just got the 1/700 Loose Cannon version. Getting it, I discovered they changed to a plexiglass deck instead of the wood one. Looking at their site would have warned me...

What would be a good way to spruce up the deck? I would imagine some scribing would be involved, but the pics I've seen seem to indicate that the deck was reasonably smooth.

If I can pull this one off, I think my other favorite, the Long Island should be easier.

Yeah, saw it on their website quite a while ago.

Below is a picture of the version of the Langley there as well as in her configuration as a seaplane carrier/tender, courtesy of the Loose Cannon models site, with the forward part of her flight removed.

I think someone at this forum or another modelling forum did a diorama of her in the AV/seaplane configuration being attacked by Japanese planes as what happened in March 1942. In that diorama, she has a lone flush-deck destroyer for an escort as well as P40s on the remaining part of her flight deck.

Also, perhaps you should retitle your thread to "Calling all USS Langley fans (CV1/AV3)" in order for people not to confuse this ship with the Independence class carrier of the same name (or CVL27), if I can recall correctly.

Good idea. I didn't think I'd cause confusion...

I think Edsall was with her when she sunk. Edsall wend down shortly after that, despite shoddy IJN gunnery.

I would like to pair her up with a Clemson/Wickes with the big hull numbers.

Just to give head up on this Ship -
that she is getting to be released in 1/350 Scale by Trumpeter
and in two versions - AV3 ( Plane Transport ) and CV-1 ( Carrier )
This is the 2018 Catalogue
