I'm not much of a diorama builder. My last one, I helped my daughter do one for a 6th grade history project showing Lewis & Clark (1/32 scale Revolutionary War figures) meeting Sacagawea (Disney's Pocahontas). She got an A. But that was nearly 30 years ago.
I've got another Dragon kit with a deck, F4F-4 with folding wings. Love to get that one done some day.

That dio looks really great, and in this small scale, Mark! My congrats
I'd love another campaign of this theme, too!
Cheers

I know the Campaign is over and ribbons awarded. But I finally finished the diorama and got some pictures.





I thought that 1/72 figures were difficult, halving the size doubles the problems.

Thanks folks. It turned into a very challenging campaign for me, 1/144 may not be my scale. I learned a lot about the stuff that happens on a carrier deck during launch operations. Ribbon looks nice up there. Hope we have another campaign like this one soon.

Time to bring this one in for the trap. Excellent work, everyone, and congrats to those who finished! Ribbons have been awarded, so if you didn't get one and think you should have, let me know.

See you around the site!

Hi All,

What a great variety of subjects for this campaign. Despite great advances on both the Vigi, and "Carmel" colored Zero, you'll all have to see them presented in the Hanger Queen Campaigns. The Zero looks just silly missing the upper gear doors, no idea where they went either!

Any other late great builds? Head over to the current Hanger Queen 10 campaign and show off your work!

Thanks for a fun campaign!

John

Just barely catching the 4th wire on a landing rated OK.
Dragon 1/144 F-14A+ Tomcat

Ready for launch.


Not a great effort, but it's done.

Finished!!!!!!!



Same here, i took one of the Academy F-18's out of my stash for this one.



The model was built with no real issues (nose could be tricky)however when building i looked at some pictures and thought that i might be able to get the flaps down and this was actually so easy that i would recommend it



I sprayed it with cheap grey primer and then with a mix of Tamiya grey paints, added some other shades of (Vallejo) grey before a coat of future.



To many decals in the sheet, takes 4ever to get them on :-) Academy printed but very good quality. Best thing about grey is that the the model will get nicely weathered with several colors grey, i still need to do some oils but for now it's ok.





Nice difersity of models in this campaign, great stuff!
