1/530 Revell Essex (CVS-9)

This is a resurrection build of an old Revell Bon Homme Richard kit I built in 1981.

I see you created a different album. You will not evade me tho🙂 Awesome work so far. This build will be an indispensable reference when I attempt to convert a WWII Essex to a cold war one in 1/700

Glad you like it! I had some issues with the old one so I thought it'd be simpler to start over with a better organized list. But my next project is like yours - I'm doing a 1950 Oriskany from a Dragon Princeton. My goal is to finish this project by end of June, and then start on that. But it'll be simpler as a waterline model.

Martin, I am almost done with my double build of CV-31 as it appeared in 1945 and in 1968 (angled deck). There is an album for that if you want to follow.
