WHOA! HE'S GOT AS MUCH FIREPOWER AS THE ENTIRE CANADIAN NAVY! All we have is a kid in a canoe with a .22 cal rifle!

 

Maybe they're going to take over the Falklands. Or the UAE.

load the guns up with paint balls or something, that could be fun :) Though, I'd have to buy/build an Iowa class ship (New Jersey baby!) to blow his ass out of the water! :)

I remember seeing some years ago, at a modelling display, a model of a Tarawa-class (I think) landing ship with transparent part where you could see the hangar deck with Harrier and Cobra models, the area where LAV-25 are stored, the LCAC bay (all filled with models) etc....

You mean this one. I just went to the A&SM last spring :biggrin: The last time I had went was as a sophomore in high school to see Bush senior get sworn in as president. The model was there then also (1989).

I think the one in the NASM is 1/100. Can't remember. I do remember a Finescale Modeler back in the late 80's that had an article on a 1/72 carrier. I was like 13 at the time and totally blown away...still am actually.

Very cool! Reminds me of the time I was riding my bicycle around this small lake in a park in Santa Rosa, I had stopped for a "rest brake" and headed down to the bushes near the edge of the water. As I was standing there, "resting",a world war 2 aircraft carrier slowly cruised by about 2 yards from the shore. I was amazed by the little teeny men and airplanes on the deck.

They showed a fully equiped 1:72 Forrestal at USAFE Ramstein Open Day some 20 years ago. Think it was from Airfix...
