Any aircraft carrier shipbuilders outthere?

Recommended Posts

Like headlines says. The Mig Alley crew urgently require some desperate help.

 

We need a High quality straight deck Essex class carrier. Its the major show stopper for our mod. We do have a high quality CVL suitable for the prop driven birds . But unless we get a CVA in the same high quality the jet powered seabirds don't have a home.

well, not the right one, at least (the SCB-125 can be made to work, but it's just wrong for the era.

 

Yes, we are DESPERATELY pleaing for the correct Essex/Ticonderoga straight-deck carriers (basicly, in their WW2 configuration, with the 5" turrets intact) It's messing me up not having it!

 

thank your for you time!

If I can hook you guys up with a model could you all get it painted and game ready? it's Oriskany in the "27-Charlie" config

27-c would work, that's about the right mod level.

 

I could probably skin it (with LUCK!); ini work not so sure

I'd be happy to help out however I can. I could probably scratch-build the ship if necessary, but since it's a carrier I'd want to take my time to detail it. The most important thing would be some good top-down reference photos so I can get the deck lines and stuff right. There seem to be plenty more pics for the angled-deck version.

The models are real models,but they show really good detail.

Got it, thanks! It looks like this will be my first carrier, so it's a bit daunting, but I think I'll be able to handle it thanks to the material you guys have provided. good.gif
