You're very welcome Uwe! Please consider posting pics of your Intrepid as you build it. 75EU! I drool with envy.

And here's something you might like for that Intrepid:

Kinda an out of the blue question. Has there been any talk about 3D printed lower bulls for all the new trumpeter 1/700 kits that don’t have them? I suppose it would probably be prohibitively expensive? Thanks!

You answered correctly and that has been discussed earlier.
Guessing on FUD easily can reach $200 USD if not more, maybe some wealthy guy can afford it(not me)
But probably in Strong and Flexible can be the half(still a lot of cash for a model that cost the third) but IMHO ,don't like the finish. So my friend go back to reality and the way to go is to scratch the lower hull or improvise using a hull from a suitable model,depending on your elasticity in the accuracy of the finished kit, is up to You

Hello Steve

Quickly back to the Hancock island, please. My already started Trumpi is scheduled to show Hancock in MS-21. I like that paint sceme and also I am still affaid of dazzle patterns, done it once in 1/700 and it looked terrible. Now I have red what you said about the changed apprenace of the starboard 20mm galleries and the range finder. I see that your 1/350 island shows the earlier set up but the 1/700, which is not for sale right now, seems to be the late war config. Would it be a lot of work to offer both? Once I get my 1/350 island I would prefere a late war set up. I have found a great picture of Hanckok's starboard side at that time...in a folder with Missouri pics!

thanks
Uwe
PS: There seems to be a big AirCo unit hanging under the 20mm platform on the funnel!

Hi Uwe,

1/350 Lexington from May, 1945- war's end should be ready today. [edit: DONE!]

The photo you posted above is erroneously labeled as Hancock on the Navsource website. But that ship is not Hancock, it is actually USS Bon Homme Richard CV-31. I offer a BHR island, too, which is different than the Hancock island, most noticeably in the shape of the navigating bridge deck and its splinter shield and the length and configuration of the 20mm Oerlikon platforms. They are different, still, from 1945 USS Lexington CV-16. Lex had the enlarged pilot house and shortened Oerlikon platform, among other less-noticeable details.

MajorB, today is your day:

Happy to announce an Essex class island for USS Lexington CV-16 as it appeared in 1945 with enlarged bridge, is now available in 1/350 scale.
The island was in this configuration during attacks on the Japanese mainland

An island for USS Bon Homme Richard CV-31 is now ready in 1/350 scale! The island was in this configuration during end-of-war aerial attacks on the Japanese mainland.

Much easier paint scheme to replicate during this period.

Hi Steve

Ordered today...:-)
It looks like Shapeways is either not too busy right now or they have beefed up their production capacity! Ordered Jan.7th, expected ship date Jan.11th is really not too bad!

cheers

Thanks Uwe!

And in other news, Uwe requested a set of generic 40mm gun tubs. A set of 15 gun tubs for quadruple 40mm mounts is now available in 1/700 scale and 1/350 scale. Other scales are possible.

1/700: http://shpws.me/Po0V
1/350: http://shpws.me/Po1p

Thanks a lot Steve...ordered a set each! Those are a must when you look for example at the bow tubs of the long hull carriers from Dragon. They also come in handy on the islands since not all carriers had the ones that get lower over the sides. :-) I will show you once I get them...

cheers
Uwe

Great... just after I'd already modded-up and resin-cast my own replacements for the Dragon bow tubs (based off the better Trumpeter ones...) Then again, these are good enough I may just want to scrape mine off and replace them...

Steve, would it be an easy enough matter to tweak these 40mm tubs to include exterior ribbing at the eighths? Seems to me to be the second most common "generic" configuration after smooth sides, especially on battleships. See also the tubs along the side of BHR here:
http://www.navsource.org/archives/02/023156.jpg

Oh, you just keep coming up with more stuff that I want to buy... :)

Steve

The final piece I needed for building my straight-deck Lake Champlain! I made up my own for a 1:350 Ticonderoga SCB-125 conversion from a Trumpeter kit but was dreading making a similar 1:700 item.

Thank you,
Maurice
